The Mommy Time Warp: Can you help?

It is a productive school day here at casa de Phillips (which was needed after yesterday’s “School on the Move” as we shuttled books and papers back and forth between three appointments in three different cities).

Currently this is what my desk looks like:


Although we may be quite productive this morning, my desk screams “Chaos!” However, I am fine with that at the moment.

Time management for moms can seem more like a time warp than an actual ability to balance responsibilities. There are moments when everything seems to be in a perfect familial rhythm and then seasons where it all feels like the slightest thing will unravel any well-laid plan.

My question for you, reader, is how do you approach time management as a mom (or dad or grandparent or random individual walking this earth attempting to carve out a life like the rest of us)? What is a tip or trick that helps you? For example, a dear friend of mine just finished a horrible week of sickness in her home where all five family members were terribly ill and all five family members were on various medicines and various medicine-taking schedules.

That is the stuff mommy nightmares are made of, right?

That friend managed her time that week by making up a nice little medicine taking chart for the whole family.

Sure, her laundry piled up and school work went undone.

However, she tackled a little bit of time management by making sure her family was on the road to health and well-being by ensuring everyone took their medicine when indicated by the handy little chart.

Share your tips/tricks/thoughts/horror stories here.

(Just for a little transparency, please know that I am working on a piece about time management for moms and love to hear “real world” advice and thoughts.)

It is snow day 4 here at casa de phillips.

I had big plans to get our family of four outside the house and to the fun environment of the grocery store this morning. However, I woke to find three inches of snow on top of the ice from Tuesday’s storm. Looks like we will be waiting to venture out until tomorrow when temperatures make it out of the 30’s. Thankfully, I did managed to make it to the gym and library yesterday afternoon. So now my metabolism has been given a little boost (to survive the large amounts of hot chocolate I plan to consume today) and we have new books and movies to entertain the kids (although I found Isaac up reading his new favorite series of books last night a good hour and a half after bedtime).

The best way I am going to keep myself entertained is by registering for PROJECT MOM today.


Readers of Save the Phillips family can register today ONLY and use the discount code “FAMILY” for 50% off of their ticket price.

That makes the price of the ticket for a full day of some awesome mommy learning only $25…about the price one would pay for 1.5 parenting books at your local bookstore.

Project Mom is a one day conference for moms that offers two group sessions, break-out sessions, a shopping expo (filled with things all moms love) and a chance to connect with other moms and have your mommy batteries recharged. Who could not use a day like that?

Project Mom is coming to the Dallas/Fort Worth area this spring and is offering four conferences in four different locations on four different days.

Surely one of those could fit into your schedule, right?

Break-out sessions include such topics as children’s health, meal planning, grandparenting issues, raising confident kids, and how to make the most of being a mom.

Today, as you attempt to entertain children on this fourth day of snow, take a few minutes for yourself. Fire up the computer, log onto to Project Mommy and register for one of their four conferences (I am registering for Dallas, by the way!) The registration tab is on the home page, bottom right corner.

Remember to use the discount code “FAMILY” to get 50% off of your ticket price!

This deal is for today only….tomorrow the price goes back to normal!

Don’t miss out on this chance to spend a day (free of children) recharging your parenting batteries and connecting with other moms.

See you there!
