Five Minutes Alone and Small Steps, Day 2: Simplicity


As we reflect on theme of Simplicity today with the Small Steps Tour, we thought we’d take a moment to also highlight some of the humorous ways moms grab five minutes.

Today, meet Abbey, who is, among other things, a runner, a coffee drinker, and a homeschooler.


That might not seem to be a picture of simplicity to you, but I smacked my forehead at the brilliance of it. Small girls + water + dolls + water = WIN!

Now, if you haven’t already join us at Testosterhome for some Small Steps. And don’t forget to enter the “Five Minutes Alone” contest that’s going on as part of our blog tour!

  1. There have been a few days where I put the kids in the bathtub in the middle of the day, just for something for them to do. They are old enough to be left (mostly) unattended there and I can grab a moment to myself.
