In today’s episode of Mum-to-Mum Monday, we’ll be talking about the value of planning when you have kids. Now I know organising your everyday life – creating routines, setting up systems, sorting your cupboards – may seem time-consuming and dull, but stay with me on this one, because seriously, it’s a gift that keeps on giving.
My guest today is SuperMum Nicole Avery
Nicole lives in Melbourne, Australia with her husband and five gorgeous kids ranging from 7 to 17 years old. She more than most knows the importance of organising the chaos of family life, and by pulling together her business know-how, hands of experience as the mum of five, and the things she’s learned from other families to bring us ‘Planning with Kids’. She’s written a book by the same, is a sought-after speaker, and has created a blog, a podcast, a menu planner app, an e-course called ‘Planning and Present’.
Today Nicole will teach us why careful planning acts as a safety blanket in our life as a busy mum. Mess and disorganisation brings and extra layer of stress to our lives and so planning for the known components of family life means you are better able to cope with the whole host of unknowns that family life constantly throws up at you.
Nicole leads by example because although she has a tribe of kids and a busy family life, as well as running a business, she still finds time to run marathons and carves out relaxed and fun time with her children.
I’m really grateful that Nicole has agreed to talk to us today because she will share with us the simple way to plan ahead, get organised and find your me time.
