Mom’s Got Mail! How a Family Mailbox Saved My Sanity

mom's got mail

 

**Today I am honored to be guest posting over at my friend Tanya‘s blog – Mom’s Small Victories! I am sharing how a simple thing has saved my sanity in a house of boys!**

 

“Why do you have a mailbox in your kitchen?”

 

This question from surprised friends always brings a smile to my face when people come to our house.

 

Oh, that? Let me tell you about our family mailbox…

 

One day I’d had it up to *HERE* with the tattling, fighting, and brotherly pestering that was going on in our house. As much as I wanted them to learn how to work out their grievances amongst themselves, I also knew that sometimes a mom has to step in to settle things. The problem comes when I can’t stop what I’m doing  – often helping someone with fractions, fixing dinner, or making a phone call – every single time there was a LEGO or light saber dispute.

 

What I needed was a personal secretary, but since that wasn’t in the family budget, I had to come up with something else.
