At Moms on Call, our heart's desire is really to free parents up to enjoy their families. No one enjoys much of anything when a house is full of sleepless anxiety, tense frustration, or chaos. The entire reason we do what we do is to help parents gain a sense of order and confidence so that there is freedom and room to "sleep, feed, laugh, and love." Freedom is found most of all when there is enough peace in the home to cut back and PLAY. We love to hear stories from clients who have finally begun to feel rested and renewed. The freedom that comes with a rested household is the freedom to enjoy one another again - to giggle and create and wrestle and imagine and love. And to laugh - there is such freedom in laughter!
"A healthy family life involves a good deal of laughter. We need a time to play with our children that is not "educational" time or "instructional" time. Just dance, sing, and enjoy being together. Freedom! Leave the stress of the workday behind and make a mess, play in the yard, have some hide-and-seek time or break out the tickle monster. We focus on household order so that we can take a break from the activities of daily life, slow down the hustle and bustle and just enjoy the intense blessing and laughter that children bring."
