Newsflash! Whilst I appreciate the fabulous and highly complimentary title of World’s Most Organised Mum, recently bestowed upon me by some media outlets, my reality is more along the lines of Slightly-Frazzled-And-Trying-Really-Hard-To-Be-Organised Mum, trying to make things work for my family. Of course, that headline is not quite so catchy!
Truth be told, I am a naturally organised person, somewhere deep, deep down in my pre-mum self, but the chaos that comes with kids, in my case three of them, seems to have slowly worn down that natural ability to keep things sorted in their special places.
With Littlest starting school this year I knew things had to change. We needed systems and to return our home to one with a “place for everything”.
So as we welcomed 2016 I committed to getting my shizzle together, for the sake of our family’s collective sanity. It’s started with a mini makeover, and huge purge of “stuff” in the boys’ bedrooms, and the now “world famous” School HQ to house all school related goodies.
Now I have seen the success of such systems and we are all enjoying smoother (but not perfect!) sailing on the school run I’m determined to stay on this organisation mission. And I’m going to share each project here so you can come along for the ride.
How does that sound?
I think what you created is great. I love that you were able to realize what the problem was and fix it. I never thought you presented yourself as the world’s most organized mother and I think the Daily Mail did you a disservice by calling you that. You are doing a great job with your family and keep on doing things your way. The rest of the world can lump it.
Thankyou! The global sharing and massive amounts of love far, far outweighed a couple of critics. One must wonder about anyone with enough time and anger to criticise a story about trying to teach your kids to be organised! x
