Ladies, we are in a bit of a crisis but that doesn’t mean we panic. There are so many new things being discovered and God is always working so there’s no need to fear. However, we know we need to have something going for this new way of life for the next few weeks. We are conditioned to handle any sudden disruptions as being Mompreneurs.
This is our time to shine and not time to slide into a corner. We can do this and here are a few things that can help us along the way! Nothing needs to be done all in one day but certainly adapt a few things and make it your own for whatever will work for you and your family! Let’s do this!
Create a daily schedule to keep your kids busy and you sane:
- Prayer + Morning devotional just for us
- Bible story time over breakfast for the kids.
- Educational Worksheets on reading and math, creative writing activity (Teacher given, Online finds etc.)
- Educational programs on your favorite streaming networks
- Online Discovery- The Cincinnati Zoo and Botanical Garden is hosting live videos of the zookeepers and various animals each day!
- Screen time
- Inside or outside recreational activities (Pinterest Ideas) (Bikes, Races, Challenges, Nature Discovery)
- Planning ahead and meal prepping your meals for each day. (I do this already on Sunday nights and plan out what we’ll eat in the coming days… Extra Tip: Write out every one of your quick cook or family favorite meals so that when you are ready to plan for the week, you’re just selecting meals from a menu. See a monthly layout below.)
Important scriptures to pray and meditate on during times like these:
- Psalms 91
- 1 Thessalonians 5:1
- 2 Timothy 1:7
- Proverbs 4:7
- Keep Anti bacterial in every main area of the home
- Clean kids tablets, toys, remotes, door knobs with Lysol wipes often
- Health officials say regular and thorough hand washing is one of the best ways to reduce your risk of contracting COVID-19
Education & Activities:
Meal planning/ prep:
These are a few examples but when you make it your own it’s more palatable. For instance, The Caldwell household limits meat intake. We lead more of a pescatarian/vegetarian diet. We do eat meat occasionally but definitely not everyday. We created our meal prep with some of the same meals without meat or substituting with a seafood. Also, we added in nights that we eat out! We have tried a few of these and added our own family favorites.
Any questions or suggestions, DM or email us and reach out! And ladies, WE’VE GOT THIS!!
To your continued success,
Niché + Shameka
