I received a copy of the book Mom Connection, and one to giveaway to a reader, in exchange for my honest review. My opinions are my own.
Balance in motherhood is my goal every day. Motherhood can feel like “twirling 100 hula hoops” and moving in “endless circles”. I think we can all relate to that visual!
The goal of finding balance motherhood, according to Tracey Bianchi, author of the book Mom Connection: Creating Vibrant Relationships in the Midst of Motherhood, is to embrace our own personal rhythm and that of our families.
We need to find the balance in our lives that will allow us to be the mothers and women we need to be.
A final thought to show the value of reading Tracey Bianchi’s book is from the “Five Mom-Tested Tips” list at the end of chapter 4 on page 69:
If you’d like to win a copy of Mom Connection leave a comment here about how you work to find balance or rhythm in your life. I will share your suggestions on Facebook and we will vote on the most helpful tip…the one with the most helpful tip wins the book!

I find that having a schedule and some kind of routine gives me balance. I really feel off kilter if my schedule gets altered too much which it often does. I also find that keeping lists helps because I can look back at my day and see all that I have done and accomplished and feel good about it instead of just focusing on what I wasn't able to get done that day. The lists and schedule also help me to focus so I can do the most important things first instead of being distracted by what seems urgent at the time.

I don't know that I ever really have rhythm but I sure try! Calendars and list are what work for us!
I have 2 little ones, and all that go with being a Mom and a wife. But I also just recently started a moms group and that in itself feels like a full time job! So for us, I write everything down on the calendar and I make checklist for everything! Even cleaning the house is done with a checklist!
While we have a morning routine, make the bed, get dressed, serve breakfast, feed dog… nothing gets by without a checklist! When I stray from the checklist it all goes south! lol!!
I also designate time, one on one time for the kids, housework, then moms group. Otherwise one area takes over the rest and we all suffer.
Don't know that these will help anyone else but it helps our home run a bit smoother. 🙂
Jamie, thank you for your comment. I posted this suggestion on Facebook and the voting is complete…you win the book!!! I look forward to you receiving it, so please email me or message me from the FB page if you use it and I will get your info to send it out ASAP. I appreciate you contributing your tip to other moms. Congrats!
