I love reading about the morning routines of other parents and how they manage work, family and personal events in an effective way. Although it took us a while to establish a consistent schedule, we’ve settled into a nice flow that has been working for us for a while. Here’s what a typical workday looks like.
I’ve always love sending handwritten notes and I keep an absurd amount of stationary and blank cards on hand. With a little one, the occasion to send cards arises more and more, so coming up with fun ways for Max to create personalized cards was a no brainer. Plus I love the idea of teaching Max to be considerate and thankful. At 18 months that concept might be a tad over his head but that’s okay. Homemade cards are such a nice touch and will be cherished by the people receiving them. Here is a roundup of some of my favorite kid friend card making ideas.
A few weeks ago Aaron introduced me to an app called “moment” that tracks your iPhone usage. Admittedly, I was a little nervous to find out exactly how much time I spent on my mobile device. Before Max was born, Aaron and I agreed that we didn’t want to be those parents that don’t interact with our kids because they are constantly on their phones. While we have been doing a pretty good job, I could probably still do better. Today I’m sharing an unedited look at my phone usage from an entire week and my takeaways.
We’ve been saying this a lot lately but the last few months have been the most fun yet. Max has his own sense of humor and loves making Aaron and I laugh with his mischievous smile. He picks up things so quickly, climbs on everything and continues to impress us everyday.
