I called my sister in tears. The simple frustration of keeping my kids clothes organized left me labeling myself a "bad mom." Silly, I know, but it was one of those days. Clothes were exploding out of their drawers and closet, half of them didn't fit any more, and it was too much for me as a nursing-around-the-clock mama and business owner. When the heck would I find time to dedicate to their closet? And I have to do it every 2 months because, guess what? BABIES GROW!!! Fast!!⠀
. ⠀
She said, "Keeping your kids clothes organized has nothing to do with whether or not you are a bad mom. NOTHING." And then I cried some more. So if you need to hear those words today, listen close:⠀

Keeping your house organized has nothing to do with you being a bad mom.⠀
Feeding your kid goldfish has nothing to do with you being a bad mom.⠀
Throwing a pinterest birthday party has nothing to do with whether or not you are a bad mom.
Your heart, your love, your guidance: that makes you a GOOD mom.
Then my sweet sister @hopefilledhome texted me back an almost-novel of how she keeps her 5 kids clothes organized that she learned in the trenches of motherhood. So while I needed to hear it didn't make me a bad mom, I also needed to hear how the heck to actually keep their clothes organized!⠀
Today I share that, and all the other tips of my kids organization, on the blog today in the very last post of the #howwedoitseries ! Link in profile! #millyraytoday #lyndonraytoday #millyandlyndon

This little girl is just a DELIGHT! 6 months and a little cherub. I adore her squeals and belly laughs and her sweet eyes and puffy hair. My little peach 🍑 #lyndonmonthbymonth #lyndonraytoday #winstonthedane

4 months with this one. 💕 She loves to talk loudly to her sister and sleep and giggle. Her smile is so bright and full of life, it’s straight from heaven. #lyndonraytoday #lyndonmonthbymonth #winstonthedane
Sometimes you get a visitor at lunchtime when you’re practicing your Trumpet who smiles the whole time you play #teamwillix #trumpet #lyndonraytoday

Because when will I ever get the chance to dress up as matching unicorns with my girls again?! 🦄✨ #millyandmama #millyraytoday #lyndonandmama #lyndonraytoday #millyandlyndon
Milly had a royal meltdown, the dogs were crazy, I snuck away to feed Lyndon in the new Suriano truck in the middle of everything, Dozer chased off some deer, and I wouldn't have it any other way. Doing work and life with these friends is the good stuff. So, so thankful. #nrpteam #millyraytoday #lyndonraytoday

We may or may not have been in our jammies all day long, and I don't hate it. Sabbath today before a wedding tomorrow - soaking in these snuggles with my girlies. 💕 #lyndonraytoday

I have always, always been afraid of natural childbirth. My whole life. And even though I delivered Milly naturally, I was more afraid the second time - I think because I knew what it felt like. Yet once again I felt the Lord calling me to it - not because He's mean but because He wanted me to be free of fear. And let me tell you - He set me free. Her birth story was so very redemptive for me!

I get pretty personal on my blog today as I share part 1 of my sweet Lyndon's birth story. Part two (and her dramatic entrance into the work) is coming tomorrow! Link in profile. 💕 #millyraytoday #lyndonraytoday 📷: @elizabethtate_

2 months! She has the prettiest smile and the most gentle, "knowing" eyes. Loving every moment with this little lady. #lyndonraytoday #lyndonmonthbymonth #winstonthedane

After two amazing weddings two weekends in a row, you better believe I'll spend today in my jammies snuggling these two precious girls, napping myself if I'm lucky enough to get them sleeping at the same time, watching episodes of Friends and doing something simple for dinner. Maternity leave is the sweetest, and goodness am I grateful for the #nrpteam who allows me to rest and be with my family without a worry in the world. #millyraytoday #lyndonraytoday #millyandlyndon

This little beauty is quickly becoming my best little buddy. Someone once told me to "be a student of your children," and I'm learning how she's very similar yet very different from her sister. It's a big weekend for her - her first road trip and nights away from home! We shall see how good of a road warrior she is 🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻! Goodness I love that little face. 😍 #lyndonraytoday

Praying I raise some fierce women of God, inseparable sisters, prayer warriors, responsible contributors to their communities who are confident, loving, and of course... silly. 💁🏼 I'm pretty positive these two are going to change the world. They've changed mine that's for sure. 👯💕 #millyraytoday #lyndonraytoday #millyandlyndon
