Hi there! I’m Veronica, from Nine A Plenty, and I’m the really happy mom of nine amazing kids. (I usually take the pictures, so this photo of me with one of them will have to do!) We have a busy, crazy life, but it’s the best one around. I’m not the most clever mom, but every once-in-a-while, my frazzled little brain brings forth a grand idea that actually works for us! I’m always excited to hear about others ideas that make our home a happier and better place. So, I thought I’d share something that works for us! Who knows?! Maybe it will work for you too!
What is it? …it’s a blurry picture…but it’s so much more!
We have a lot of family discussions. And there are always things that we are working on to improve life in our home and to strengthen our family.
This board hangs in our dining room. It’s nothing fancy, crafty or even all that cute! I got it at Walmart and I don’t think I paid more than $15 for it.
But, I love it. It works for us. It’s a reminder for us of what we are working on that month.
It pretty much started because I can’t remember things from one day to the next. I have great intentions, but unless it’s right there in front of my my little nosey-poo, I don’t remember! So I needed a way to remember these things that were important to our family. We see it every time we sit down for a meal and we read it often.
I try to change it up every month. I try to give our family some new challenges to work on. I try to make it uplifting and motivating. And I try to keep it simple so no one feels overwhelmed.
I love walking by it and reading it and being reminded of all the wonderful little things we are focusing on.
It’s just a simple thing. But it helps. It’s one of my favorite things. And I love it.
