Team Moms should get trophies at the end of the season like the kids just for surviving. My first year as a Team Mom I had an epic fail. I literally “failed as a team mom” (said in my best Beverly Goldberg voice)! I’m sharing my failure with you in hopes that you can learn from my mistake and rock your Team Mom duties.
“What color were you on today?” That’s the question I ask B every time he gets in the car after school, after I ask how his day was. I always want to be sure he was on his best behavior and there isn’t anything we need to talk about. Luckily he’s usually a pretty well behaved child.
School starts Monday and I don’t know about you but mornings are not my thing. They’re not my son’s either. We’ve been Easing into our Back to School Routine by going to bed and getting up earlier but I still think it’s going to be rough in the mornings. Here are a couple of tips I’ve put together to help make school mornings a little easier and less hectic.
With summer fast approaching I’ve been working on getting a plan together to keep B from spending his days in front of the tv. As a working mom that works from home it’s important to me to have something for him to do so I can get my work done. Thinking this was only a working mom problem I asked some of my stay-at-home mom friends and found that they too are busy scheduling summer activities. Now when I say scheduling I don’t mean the over-scheduled, helicopter parenting type of thing. I just mean making sure you’ve signed up for camps your child is interested in attending, seeing which ones make sense to attend since you can’t be two places at once, etc. As a work at home mom I do feel like I need to plan ahead a bit more and I’m sharing what goes into my summer activity planning.
