    Oh you have a wonderful outlook on getting things done! in the 4 years i have been a Mama i am still trying to get into a good groove of getting stuff done. It seems every time i do – something switches everything up! I LOVE the week plan instead of the daily plan!

    I think this is great advice for anyone! Mom or not! Thanks for sharing, Jennifer. I’m going to start practicing organizing my tasks this way.

    Getting the right balance is hard. Thanks for sharing your tips on helping to maintain that balance. This is an awesome post!!

  • KLZ

    Great post! Would love to hear more about how you manage meals – I’m really struggling to cook and play with the boy at night.

    This is a great reminder to focus on what really matters. It’ll be the lazy days we remember when we’re old, not how many sit ups we did or errands we ran.

    Thanks for all the great feedback!

    KLZ, I’m going to be honest. We are lucky with dinner. Turtle still goes to bed at 6. I fix him dinner at 5 (usually leftovers from the night before), and then MacGyver and I eat our dinner closer to 8. As Turtle gets older and starts going to bed later, we hope to average a family dinner time at 6/6:30.

    That being said, it’s pretty easy for me to prep and cook after he goes down for the night. If I’m not feeling it, I throw something in the crockpot in the morning (but I try not to do that more once every 10 days or so).

    It also helps that I love to cook. Hope that helps!

    I can totally identify with this post. How I schedule my time since I became a mom is so different than how I scheduled my time before, but I have never really thought about it before. This post made total sense to me!
