focused mom Challenge week 1 results

Our focus this week was to "look left, right and left"
Read about our homework here

I did better than I thought I was going to. 
I won't lie, I haven't been as "focused" as I would like to be. 
A big lesson I did learn this week is how much time  I am distracted during the day. 
I try to multi- task a little too much...ok a lot! 
It's a trait we mom's have to have
On Monday I kept track of how many times I tell my kids "Just a minute" 
I quite counting after 25! Wayyyyy Tooooo Muchhhhh! 

THen each day following I made a conscience effort to Not say that. But, instead to get up, stop doing what I was doing and pay attention to them.
It was difficult at some moments. But I found that paying attention to my children where times I wasn't going to get back. 
IT was worth it!!!!!!

So glad you're taking part in the Focused Moms Challenge! I am so guilt of the "In a minute" comment that I don't think I should even count! Can't wait for Week Two!

Thanks for inviting me to take part. I think we have to multi task sometimes, but we do it more than we should. It's been good to focus more on kids.
