I am fortunate enough to have a best friend who's been in my life since I was five. Our mothers went to nursing school together, we attended the same small neighborhood church and went to the same school from Kindergarten through high school graduation, and were in each other's weddings. She knows me better than anyone else on the planet and vice versa. The kind of soul mates who can abbreviate an entire explanation using a single word or name from the past. But she lives 90 minutes away. So, every six months we meet in the middle for dinner to celebrate our respective birthdays. Just the two of us...no husbands, no kids, no interruptions...just two best friends laughing about the good times, crying about the tough ones, and swapping secrets. No matter how broke we are or how busy we get, we make this night happen twice a year. When I know I've got that on my calendar, I can get through just about anything!”

Post-its!! I keep packs of them in the van so when we are running around town or out to dinner the kids can use them. I tell them to count how many times they see a red car or stop sign ect.... at dinner i tell them to write as many things down that they see that starts with a certain letter or has a certain color in it! Even if they get bored the end up playing tic tac toe or drawing.by candi on 1st July 2011345Vote!
Hi moms! Just to share with you, here is a stress reducer I use almost daily since this summer : it's a single app for iOS devices but is really a smart idea! Just like your mood lamp except you can bring it anywhere. I use to relax with it, my children love it, and you can even use it as a nightlight ! This is the 'lifesaver' part, it helped me more than once with children when not at home. I wish app developers have more often such good stuff to offer ! Enjoy and have a good day, Liliby lili2009 on 27th September 2012265Vote!
