Snow Day as a Mom

Nothing like a good ol’ fashion snow day to let you catch up on life!

On 3/6/13 the weathermen called for a big blizzard, but this is what it looked like haha.

As kids, we were giddy with the prospect of making snow angels — and maybe there would even be enough snow for an actual snowman!

As a new mom, I’m just excited that I have a day to check some items off my ever-growing to do list.  Small victories!

I recently started a new job and joined the circus of moms out there who somehow balance work in and out of the home.  All of a sudden, I’m spinning plates, but I’m a far cry from joining the amazing Cirque du Soleil troupe.

I think most moms out there feel this way (unless they’re fortunate enough to have lots of flawless help!), so I’m trying to learn all their tricks of the trade.  A couple good ones so far: (1) wash hair the night before (thanks, Beth!); (2) get an easy hair cut that doesn’t require daily washing (thanks, Anne!); and (3) shave legs on Saturday (thanks, Anonymous :).  I also learned a few lessons my first week through simple trial and error: (4) silk blouse goes on right before you walk out the door, after baby’s breakfast; and (5) silk blouse comes off the minute you walk back though the door; before baby’s dinner. (Thank you, Princess Cleaners.)

I’d love to hear any other tips from the army of women out there who somehow make it all work!  Please share your secrets! We’re all in this together!

 

What are your 2 cents, Mama?
