Making small rounds at my baby's day care in between work and catching glimpses of beautiful smiles of the children there and being around my baby whenever I want to see him..”

When cooking spinach, don't bother with the hassle of taking it out of the pack, boiling water, and wilting it over a pan - just chuck the sealed bag in the microwave for 45 seconds on full blast.by Melinda Lamb on 6th June 2008128Vote!
I run a medium load of washing every morning and put it in dry as I get out to work. I fold it in the evening. This way my loads are smaller and are much easier than running big loads in the weekend. Also we do not have to listen to the dryer noise!by Lakshmi on 29th May 2009207Vote!
Drink a tall glass of water first thing in the morning. It helps me stay hydrated before the day gets completely hectic and just the act of taking a few seconds to do it is calming.by Nataly on 28th November 2008146Vote!
Make sure you have one visit per month that involves connecting with an artist in any of the fields: music, theatre, painting, photography, fashion, hair styling.

Routine is my lifesaver. When school starts, my eldest goes back to college, my (disabled) teen starts high school, and I go back into the classroom, too. We depend on routine to keep us sane and get everything done. Morning routine: creakfast (together), then teen on the bus, then straight to school for me. This extra morning time built into my routine is another lifesaver; it allows me to leave right after school.by Daisy on 7th July 2008107Vote!
When in doubt, wear your sunglasses!by The Ipster on 20th August 2009268Vote!
Okay, so, I hate cleaning the bathroom but with a potty training kid it has to be done frequently. Now I keep a spray bottle of pepperminty cleaner and a box of baby wipes under the sink; when I'm bathing the kids, I grab a wipe and spray down the sink and counter, wipe, and throw away. I repeat with the toilet area. It takes 2 minutes, I'm in the bathroom anyway, the peppermint makes it smell good, and the wipes are cheaper than "special" cleaning wipes.
