So much to do, so little time......probably the daily thoughts of every parent.
How do we attempt to solve it? Some do. Some don't.
I have struggled with the reality of this so much more lately since bringing home Athena home from the hospital and now being out-numbered 3 kids to 1 Momma.
Some days it feels like a losing battle. Other days I am triumphant and giddy upon realizing a small victory.
Right now all three kiddos are asleep. In my bed. I am in my recliner next to my bed. Surfing online with only 6 hours of sleep. I can't relax enough or get comfortable enough to fall asleep. However....they are asleep. So, I will continue to operate on less than a full nights sleep because it means they are comfortable and resting and the day ahead will be a little smoother.
What is your favorite way to accomplish tasks as a parent? Do you multitask or attack challenges one at a time? How do YOU deal with the daily dilemma of being a parent while still taking care of yourself?

Have you ever heard of Signing Time? I love love love their show & products and was ecstatic to learn that they have new DVD's especially for babies.
Here is the story of how it all started;
Rachel Coleman and her husband Aaron brought home their first daughter, Leah, in December of 1996. They were very surprised to see how well Leah would sleep through practices and concerts for Rachel's folk rock band, and later found out that Leah was profoundly deaf.
Rachel and Aaron began teaching Leah Sign Language to their daughter as quickly as they could, and found that when her friends could only point and whine for the things they wanted, Leah would sign "Juice, not milk" or "Cheese and crackers, please". Other parents begin noticing, and when Rachel's sister Emilie began teaching Sign Language to her son Alex, at only 10 months, he stopped fussing and signed "milk".
Rachel and Emilie decided to create a captivating, entertaining video to teach sign language to hearing children, thus Signing Time was born!
Within a few years, the Signing Time program has spread by word of mouth to all 50 states and over 20 countries. Signing Time is used widely by educators, pediatricians, home-schoolers, speech therapists, public schools, daycare centers, libraries and families as the most fun and easy way to introduce children to sign language.

Yup - that's what they are. Necklaces for a Mom to wear.
Why? Well, if you have children you know the familiar tug from a child. It starts softly, then stronger, then enough to get a reaction out of you. Good or bad, this urge to explore can be turned into a useful learning tool. Learning = jewelry, you say? Why yes, grasshopper...
How? Well according to my friends (solely on my end!) at Mommy Necklaces , "twiddling" is normal and helps your child learn through their environment, including tactile exploration & sensory information.
Safety - Yes even the smallest of my three (4 1/2 months) has what seems like a limitless amount of physical strength when it comes to getting something she wants. No problems with theses necklaces. The founder (Raelynn) shares her story on her website about the safety features.
Designs - The necklaces are hailed as trendy & stylish on their website & I wholeheartedly agree. I very rarely wear "costume jewelry" but these necklaces I will gladly wear. They are colorful, without being overbearing. I *love* the color combinations and the stones are gorgeous.
Latest news: Mommy Necklaces has branched out in the abyss known as Facebook and added a Fan Page. Facebook fans have access to exclusive promotions and designs. To promote this addition, they are currently running a special, which ends at midnight on Thursday, June 25th Check it out here.
I am SO excited. gDiapers has come out with cloth inserts!! Ye-ah!!
They also have introduced everyday g's. These are a six-pack of gPants, 6 liners, & 1 swish stick. Three pairs of great orange and three pairs of genuine vanilla bean little gPants.
gCloth inserts baby!!!!!
gCloth inserts offer a washable and reusable option for gDiapers. They are designed specifically to fit soft little gPants so they don’t require any folding. They provide the same trim fit as biodegradable gRefills without giving up the absorbency. Six inserts per pack.
gCloth absorbs, naturally.
Two layers of soft 100% polyester micro fleece wick moisture away from baby’s bottom. Two layers of hemp/cotton hold moisture in.
Hemp doesn’t wear out, it wears in.
Hemp in particular becomes more absorbent with use so the more you wash gCloth inserts, the softer and more absorbent they become.
And…the best news yet…
Use this exclusive coupon code (g893Perkins) to get $30 off everyday g's six-pack!!! That brings the cost down to $40 for 6 gPants or a savings of $55.29!!!!! (if gPants were bought separately)
Don’t miss out – the coupon code is only good until midnight on July 31st!
Now get shopping!!!!
P.S. the little gPant pictured above (glory) is on sale for only $12.99 - perfect for the 4th of July!!
