Motherhood Made Easier :: Routines

I used to know someone who despised routines. He said they made everything predictable and he couldn’t enjoy his life.

The BEST School Lunch Gear

Like most parents in mid-August, I begin the school year with the best of intentions. I lay out carefully selected matching outfits the night before the school day and the backpacks have been double checked and lined up by door like soldiers awaiting their orders. Shoes are placed on the floor next to them to […]
