Tackling Those Busy Weekends

Weekends are meant to be fun, relaxing, and carefree. But the life of a parent is jam packed with even more responsibility then what came during the work week. Inevitably, the weekends are still fun, but relaxing and carefree they typically is not.

An article entitled, Sadderday -- Avoid Overscheduling Busy Weekends on Parents.com hit the nail on the head for me. As I read it, I felt like I was the one who had written the article. I'm sure our other parents out there will relate also so I had to feature it this week.

The article goes through some great tips to a happier, calmer weekend. And those weekends can still include soccer practice, birthday parties and sleepovers...and even some time for yourself.
