I've got a lot of stuff (and people) in my life to manage right now. In fact, there is way more that should be done than possibly can be done at this time. That's why I'm typing this blog one-handed while nursing a baby. Multi-tasking: an unfortunate reality in the life of this busy mom. Instead of doing New Year's Resolutions (which I don't usually do anyways), I've decided to try choosing three areas that need dedicated focus and work on them for a month. Here's my picks for January!
1. I'm trying the GAPS diet with Daniel. He has ongoing issues with severe eczema and food allergies, and I've been wanting to try this diet for a long time. Now is the time! I really hope that this diet will help with Daniel's skin, especially since this is the time of year that is typically his worst. This diet requires lots of cooking (even more than usual), so it's definitely something I need to invest time in.
2. I want to give additional focus and energy to Nathan's homeschool and working on some behavior issues. He's doing well, but I feel like if I give him more time and attention, he'll be able to do even better. He also needs some practice on skills like standing still (which he can hardly do at all right now).
3. I'm planning to continue my quest toward minimalism by decluttering more. I am already an ardent fan of simplifying, and I'd like to streamline even more. Less stuff, more time, more living.
