  • With a one-year-old, it is hard for me to carve out any significant lumps of time in the day to work, and my work requires some concentration. I had a hard time at first trying to balance getting my work done and not feeling like I was neglecting my daughter. My solution? I have started getting up one hour before my daughter in the morning. I feel much less stressed. In that one hour I get more done than I would in 3 or 4 distracted hours during the day. And now my day is free to take care of my home and daughter. Some mornings it is hard to wake up early, but I just need to be disciplined and go to bed on time. It is worth it because I am much less stressed.

  • You can use white glue (like Elmer's) to take out most splinters without resorting to tweezers. Spread a thin layer of glue on the splinter and the skin around it, wait for it to dry, and then peel it off -- the splinter gets pulled off with the glue.
