This goes out to all the moms out there who live in a small home… and maybe wish it was larger: Hi. Do you need a hug? That might be weird. So here’s a cyber high-five.
Friend, I know how you feel. Living in a house or apartment that feels cramped for your family is hard. You’re not alone in longing for more space. Although tiny houses may be having a moment, the vast majority of American families still expand their space with added children.
But what if you can’t afford to move to a bigger home yet? What if living in a teeny gypsy-cart on wheels doesn’t interest you? Is there a happy medium for those of us in limited space? Is it possible to raise a flourishing family without a dedicated playroom or separate bedrooms for each person?
To you—to us—I say “yes.” It IS possible to not just get by, but to THRIVE as a larger family in a relatively small home. I know it’s possible because I’ve done it.
