Mother's Day

Ah, mothers -- they do it all. Work a 40+ hour week, take their kids to soccer and ballet, bake cookies for the church fundraiser, keep house, cook, clean, and tuck the little ones in with a goodnight kiss. And when, exactly, does this fictional SUPERWOMAN have time for a life of her own? Most moms are lucky if they can remember to pick their kids up after work and feed them a peanut butter sandwich before collapsing for the evening. And it's not because we are bad parents -- it's because we are OVERLOADED. So this month, as a Mother's Day gift to you, we're going to work on setting some REALISTIC parenting goals.

Some Practical Organizing Tips...

Start with your PRIORITIES. If you say that your kids are a priority, but you work nights and weekends and never see your family, something has to give. Prioritizing is about trade-offs -- you have to give something up to have the thing you really want most.
Be realistic about how much you can fit into your SCHEDULE. You can't do everything -- but you can make room for the important things. You have to learn to say no (even to your kids) without guilt when you do not have enough time to fulfill a request.
Don't be afraid to ask for help! The key key to getting better organized -- DELEGATE baby! No matter what your family composition, everyone should help out. Divide up responsibilities so that everyone has afair share of chores and free time.
