Never has there been a more chaotic time in the lives of many mamas! I know many of us…ahem, me…have thought once or twice lately that there’s no way to improve the efficiency and reduce the stress in our household because of all the things we have going on. But it’s possible! In today’s episode, I’m interviewing Laura Hernandez of Mama Systems. With 10 children and 20+ appointments weekly, “peace” is not the word you would probably guess to describe Laura’s household. Yet somehow, it’s what she’s created and now she’s working with moms across the country to bring that same peace and calm into their homes. I talk with Laura about what it was like when her family grew by six children in less than five years, and how letting go of what others thought of her was a requirement to create the family life where she, her husband, and children can thrive.
About the Guest:
My name is Laura Hernandez. My husband, Tony, and I are raising our ten amazing children in the Dallas area. In the past four and a half years we have added six new children to our family... three biologically and three through adoption.
Going from four to ten kids was hard work. And, on top of having a large family, we are also not your "typical" family. We have three kiddos in public school, we are homeschooling five kids, and - with three kiddos having special needs - we have over 20 appointments weekly.
I read many books on homeschooling schedules, large family logistics, and family dynamics; but I found over and over again that nothing that was already out there was fully relevant to our family!
I had to figure out what worked for US and I had to do it myself. Books didn't have the perfect answers. How could we manage all of our logistics and have-tos and make time to intentionally instill the ideals that our family values? It took me years to develop systems and life hacks to keep our family running and organized. But after creating systems that helped our family run smoothly, it reduced my daily workload and my house became a place of peace... yes, even with 10 kids!
Out of these years of hard work, Mama Systems was born. I want to save other Mamas the pains I went through to figure it out on my own. I want to bring more peace to their homes by coaching them through ideas, schedules, incentives, chores, and delegating.
