7 Simple Tips to Help Parents Get Things Done

Having little ones will definitely keep you on your toes. Between dressing them, feeding them, playing with them, and soothing them, there isn’t a whole lot of leftover time to accomplish day-to-day tasks. I recall wondering during my early days as a new mom how all these other mothers ever found time to get anything done and why their houses didn’t look like a hurricane had rolled through. It seemed nearly impossible to even find time to get the most basic tasks like washing dishes completed, let alone ever getting ahead with the items on my to-do list.
Slowly though, I found my rhythm and learned a few things that help me get a little bit more accomplished in my day. Hope they can help you too!

Believe me…I’ve been there. I currently have a two-and-a-half year old and an almost 3-month-old, so I know these fears well, and I thought it might be helpful to write an open letter to all of you mamas out there who are waiting on that second baby to arrive.

Prepping for a Roadtrip

In a couple of weeks, my husband and I are driving to Texas with our three girls. It’s about a 13-hour drive, which is a lot for anyone, especially two toddlers and a baby. We’ve road-tripped before with our girls, but never for quite this long. I’m trying my best to plan ahead so we can have a smooth trip. I know it won’t be all puppy dogs and rainbows, but I think a little preparation can certainly help.

3-Day Potty Training with Free Printable

Potty training is most parent’s least favorite part of the early years. In my experience, each child trains differently. Some children are excited and ready to train, while others are pretty reluctant. We have been trying to train our toddler for some time now. Just the other day, I came across this awesome 3-day plan and knew I had to share it with you here…
