Success Story: SOS from Expectant Mom
An expectant Mom, who is an attorney, and mother of a 2 and 4 year old, realized she needed some help organizing their home before their 3rd child arrived. We focused on organizing the entryway, 1st floor bathroom, kitchen, children’s clothing, and toy areas. The goal was to make it easier for Dad, Grandma, and any other helping hands, to find things when Mom was in the hospital or busy with the baby. I did the hands on organizing so that Mom could spend some time with the big sisters. We finished just in the nick of time because her bouncing baby girl arrived ten days early.
