Over New Years, we spent some time out of town as a family. It was the first “vacation” since having kids that I felt like I could relax. I enjoyed time with my kids rather than thinking about the next thing I needed to do. I realized that I was way more present than I […]

5 Ways I am a More Present Parent

When raising kids, one of the main goals in our house is they become productive members of society. Will that happen when I do everything for them? Or should I start giving them some independence and ability to complete tasks themselves? Clearly, even with young kids, it’s time to start teaching them some life skills […]

How to Hand Tasks Over to Your Kids (Even if They’re Young)

Whether you’re packing for just yourself or a whole family (I don’t know about you, but packing for everyone still falls on me!), you will want to be organized to make sure you don’t forget anything.

Before we even get started, my biggest piece of advice is to have duplicates for travel. The last thing you want is to forget your phone charger or worse, the sound machine (parents of young kids, you understand!).

Packing for Vacation

Toy rotation just means having a limited number of toys for your children to play with at one time. This creates less overwhelm for kids. Have you ever had too many choices and just shut down? Our children feel the same way. When there are too many toys around, they get overwhelmed and can’t choose.

How to get your Spouse to agree with Getting your Home Organized

When thinking about the nursery, consider what you’ll be doing where. You want to make sure diapers and wipes are within reach when you’re changing the baby (and have extras on hand because no one wants to be stuck without a wipe!). Where will you be feeding the baby? Make sure to have a table nearby for water or to place the bottle down when needed. Getting everything set up before the baby arrives, if possible, will help when the baby is here and you’re not sleeping.

Newborn Nursery Organization

When it comes to playrooms, the key is finding a system that works well for the parents and the children. I typically try to find a system that children can clean up easily and looks put away for the parents. It’s way easier to go to bed at night when the toys are cleaned up!

3 Routines for Back to School

Kids’ rooms can be tough, especially toddlers. They are constantly growing and clothes sizes are changing. The key to a kid’s clothing is to work with that change. When organizing a kid’s closet and dresser, you want to have systems for bringing in new clothes and getting rid of outgrown clothes. Many of these tips will work for older kids as well. They are still growing out of clothing, just not as quickly.

Organizing a Toddler’s Closet

The part of my day that used to take the longest was making dinner. I thought that I had to spend time following a recipe that involved lots of chopping and putting ingredients together. Since having kids, I have made dinners so much easier. I normally have about 25 minutes of a tv show to get dinner ready and on the table without going into too much screen time for my kids. Now, I typically finish what I need to do in less time because I have developed a plan that works well for our family.
