The Great Schedule


With work and kids comes a schedule - or the lack there of on occassion. I'm pretty flexible when it comes to scheduling our lives (my husband may think differently) but without a basic schedule something inevitably gets missed or forgotten. Yea, I've been that mom who RSVP'd to a kid's birthday then just forgot all about it. Who needs this embarrassment on top of all the other daily things that routinely humiliate us (like forgetting the parts to your breast pump in the office sink because you were just gonna grab that call REALLY fast). Forgetting a party only happened once, but it taught me a valuable lesson in making sure my bases are covered. I am a huge advocate of accomplishing this as efficiently as possible.

Another mom introduced me to a really cool website, http://jooners.com/ to quickly coordinate schedules. It can help with things like volunteering, classroom parties, carpools or whatever else you may need. I was sad I didn't think this up! It's quick, it's easy and it was really effective. I love it so much I'm adding it to my "Mom's Guilty Pleasures." Hopefully it helps someone else in their plight to balance life.
