5 Easy "Stay-Sane" Tips For The Milennial Mommy

1. Wake up before everyone else does.

We have a full house since my guys and I live with family for now. So I prefer to wake up at 6 to get things done (laundry, exercise, homework, shower, etc.). Waking up early gives you a head start and also gives you that much needed opportunity to have a moment alone, before the chaos ensues.

2. Embrace the to-do list.

I’ve always made lists, I got that from my mom and I’m glad I did. Having a to-do list keeps you focused and organized. Checking things off here & there leaves you with a feeling of accomplishment and a little triumph too.

3. Spread the responsibility.

Ladies, I know we can do a lot. Like text message, cook and burp a baby all at once. We’re awesome. But sometimes we need help, give your significant other a task or two to do. If there’s no partner in the picture, then ask a family member or a best friend. After all, what are best friends for?

4. Pack the bag the night before.

Even if you have no plans of leaving the house the next day, keep your little one’s bag ready and prepared at all times. Pack it up the night before and sit it by the front door. It saves time while rushing to get out of the house the next day. Just grab it and go.

5. Maximize nap time.

If your child is still taking naps, then take advantage of that. I’ve said this before. Use some of the nap time to answer some emails, make some calls, finish an assignment or anything. Then, use the rest of the time to watch your favorite show or close your eyes for a sec.

    Yes! All of these tips speak to me! Especially waking up before everyone else does. I value that quiet time to get my life together.

    I love all of these but number 3 especially has made a big difference now that my kids are getting older. They help so much with chores around the house! My 12 year old and 8 year old have assigned chores and it saves me a lot of time. The more they do them, the better they get and the less I have to go behind them. And my 8 year old is starting to make meals for us. Yasssss. I don’t like to cook. :)

      I can’t wait to get to the point of assigning chores. I’ve still got a boat load of time…smh.

      And he’s making MEALS??????? Oh, you’ve got a millionaire in the making!

    Great post! #1 is my favorite. I can get so much done if I wake up an hour before everyone else does.

      Yes, I agree with her too. I remember when I used to get up at 4am to pump milk for my baby Lola (now 3). I hated it at the time, but that was when I pumped the best ideas out of this noggin! thanks for stopping by chica!

      Me too! Always worth it!
