Time Management

Time Management

It amazes me how many parents have multiple children and find time to blog each day. I have 1 child and there are many days it’s very challenging.

I understand as they get older and more independent it is easier. I understand older ones might help with younger ones on occasion.

However, I’ve also heard that babies sleep frequently and for a decent (30-45 minute) duration. This has just never been true of my son. Sleeping just hasn’t been his hobby. Maybe during those teen years he’ll take it up.

How do I find time to do everything? I generally do everything else with his “help”. Whether he is playing nearby or actually assisting if I can get it done that’s great!

Blogging time for me has become mornings and evenings mostly. Usually typing with 1 arm while snuggling a half asleep boy. Or I do it when someone else is available to watch him.

I wonder if other mom’s have an available supportive family helping or really do wear a cape…

How do you make free time to do everything?

Find a mentor. Want to learn a specific skill or knowledge? See if someone in the community can be your mentor. This can be a family member, family friend, or someone you don’t even know yet.

BE a mentor.

Play hide-and-go-seek–in the DARK! Turn off all the lights in the house… and play for hours. Warning–this can get a bit raucous. Parental permission is required.

Origins GinZing Review

I got a free sample of Origins GinZing when they were giving them out.  I was not going to review this but the scent is really really nice!

It’s supposed to be an energy-boosting moisturizer.  I’ve never met a lotion that made me energetic, and this one is no exception, this could just be me.  It did hydrate my skin well though. Read more [+]

Weekly Writing idea for kids

I will be sharing one weekly writing idea for kids each week for the summer. Let them write whatever form they like (or you choose). Then you can send it in the mail, put them in a binder to save, or whatever else you come up with.

This weeks idea: Plan a “stay-cation” for the last week of summer. What will you do?

Drawer Decor Review and Giveaway!

If your kitchen drawers look like mine (a cluttered mess) then I have found a solution! I wanted a great way to organize my drawers, but it needed to be easy to use, easy to clean and look good, too!

When I opened the box, this is what I saw

I opened it up and was surprised at how large the mat was.  I think I could use this on 2 small drawers or 1 nice large drawer. I left the plastic on in the photo because the silicone mat has a stickiness to help it stay in the drawer. Read more [+]
