Finally! After one child searched and came up empty-handed the other day, the other has retrieved one of our critical tools: the Mom’s Family Calendar.
Most calendars have squares that are too small to squeeze in four people’s activities, particularly during the evils of March and school activities/spring sports. Then my husband took to highlighting his activities in yellow, which was great for him but a nuisance for the rest of us.
My son brought home one of these calendars from a school book fair and I fell in love with it. For a family of four, especially, its five columns are perfect: Mom and Dad on one side, each child on the other, and a center column labeled ALL for functions that everyone is expected to attend. I’ve used these for about six years now and was feeling lost without one.
* I get absolutely nothing for sharing this. The companies involved never have heard of me. We truly have come to rely on this tool and I thought it might help someone else.
