ok we all know it! As moms we'd all like to be able to stop time, grow a few extra arms, put a magic spell on our husbands to get them to do everything we need but in reality, none of that's going to happen. So I ask you, what's your ultimate time management secret? How do you make the hours and tasks balance out as best you can and manage not to go postal on someone. Share your tips and ask your questions!
Personally, I find that I live and die by my calendar. I created a family one to share with my husband and our parents so that they always know what's going on in our lives. Google has amazing functionality so you can set privacy restrictions on what our parents can see (They really don't need to know about my gyno appointment) but they might need to know we're planning a trip out of town next week or we have a concert coming up we'd likely be asking one of them about babysitting our daughter. Since I started using this method our life is running much more smoothly because all the people that need to know about things, know about things and might I add we are certainly some busy people so it's hard to keep track!
So tell me, what's your secret?
