You all liked it last time, so I thought I’d do another quick 5 for you.
Aren’t I all nice and stuff?
I know. I try.
Here we go!
It is inevitable that my 15 month old is going to wake up once during the night. Usually around 5am. The surefire way to get her to go back to sleep is to make sure she has a binky and a sippy cup. So, why go through the frustration of filling a sippy cup and searching for a binky at 5am? I always make sure there’s an extra binky somewhere easily accessible, and put a tiny bit of milk in a sippy cup in the fridge. She won’t drink much (just wants it for comfort) and I don’t want stinky milk in the morning! ~ Danielle
Since my daughter seems to think that bath water belongs on everything in the bathroom, I clean the bathroom while shes in the tub and everything is wet anyway. No water wasted, child clean, bathroom clean! 3 birds, 1 stone, more mom time. ~ Jodi
We keep all the sheets under the bed they belong to in small under-the-bed boxes. Everyone has three boxes under their bed. One for out of season clothes, one for extra sheets and pillow cases and one for whatever that person’s age requires (ie extra diapers under the crib, toys that are out of rotation under the toddler bed, books and misc. stuffs under the master bed and extra blankets and pillows under the guest bed) When I need a sheet in the middle of the night or just on a daily basis I can get it from under the bed, saving myself a trip to the linen closet where you have to sort out which sheet is right. ~ Abi
To go along with extra diapers in the car I always pack a little snack to. Because it is much cheaper to take snack size baggies with me than it is to buy a snack every time we are shopping! Also the candy by the register gets us some times so I buy a bag of 8 candies for a $1.00 or something, give them 1 and put the rest in my purse for next time! ~ Tammy
I wanted to share a tip that I can’t believe I hadn’t heard of until recently. Juice box wings. Yup, this is one of the most brilliant ideas ever! All you do is fold up the cardboard tabs on the sides of the juice box for your kids to hold while they drink their juice box. No squeezing the box = no spilling! Ok, so they may still be spilling, but it is drastically reduced. ~ Kristin
