Tip #1: Schedule your mom activities like an appointment!  I like to pencil in workouts, carpool duty and grocery shopping right into my calendar so I can keep my to-do list organized. Seeing it all written down is a surefire way to get it all done and allow you to rearrange as needed.

Keeping your New Year's resolutions

The New Year is off to a fresh start, and many of us are committed to doing something or many things with more intention this year. But it's tough to stay on track. In fact, “Quitters Day”, which falls on January 14th this year, is the day when most people give up. How can you ...read more

The Best Overnight French Toast Recipe

We've hit the winter lull--that lengthy stretch of season with no plans, no parties, nothing to do, and nowhere to go. I have to admit that at first, I welcomed the quiet obligation-free weekends of January. After the nonstop hustle-bustle pace of November and December, my family ...read more

Tip #2: Make "date night" a priority! As moms, we are constantly juggling many hats and it can be easy to forget to focus some time for our relationships. Ask your relatives or a friend to babysit for a night (and offer to return the favor), then hit the town. Or have a "date in", by setting up a sleepover for the kids (or putting them to bed early), and rent a movie, make some popcorn and curl up on the couch!

Tip #3: Enlist the kids to help! Chores don't need to solely fall on mom—I like to get my kids involved by making a chore wheel and set up a completion sticker chart with rewards. Have the kids choose the rewards like which family movie to rent that week or a special activity with mom.

Tip #4: Look for resources that can help make it all a little easier.I rely on the new P&G everyday™ (pgeveryday.com) for tips, tools, reviews and discounts (we all love those!) to help me handle the stuff I need to do so that I can spend more time doing the things I want to do. It’s all about getting back time for those little rewarding moments with your family.

Tip #5: Prep food for the week on Sundays! Sunday is a perfect time to gather the kids to help you in the kitchen and prepare the basics for the week. Chop veggies and fruit and put each into their own container in plain view in the fridge. That way when someone needs a quick snack, it is all ready for eating and you can be confident they are eating something healthy. Great idea for prepping lunchboxes!
