Organizing six children – triplets and twins
This is a challenge for the once always organized mom. Once a single mother of three, in the last three weeks I have undertaken the largest scheduling challenge of my life.
Two homes, six kids, starting a business, and trying to get in shape again.
Rod and I are working on blending our children which equals; three in kindgergarten, two in second grade, and a preteen who thinks he knows how to parent better then me !
Drop off to two different elementary schools each morning, morning kindergarten at one and afternoon at the other, plus utilizing our great daycare (ran by my friends).
Last week I created a weekly schedule and plan dinner each night. Of course Wednesday was baked tacos and the chicken and cheese where conveniently located at Rod’s house whilst dinner was being prepared at my house.
I am going to get the hang of this and I am learning some new time management tips ! Today’s tips:
Muffins are great for breakfast and you need a bluetooth headset for your mobile phone if you don’t yet have one ;) But be prepared for people to look at you funny when you are talking to yourself while waiting for dance class. Which could be an added benefit. I mean really who has time for new friends ? So it’s ok all the ballet moms think I am crazy.
