Tips for Getting Out of the House

Steady Mom

OK, so the weather's getting nicer, and you're happy to go outside more and hit the parks and playgrounds. But at least for us, getting out the door can be a challenge. Getting everyone dressed, fed, changed or on the potty, and making sure you bring everything you'll need...often leaves us exhausted before we've even gone anywhere.

So...we were so happy to find this wonderful list of tips over at Steady Mom:

"Have your bag ready the night before." We admit we often forget to restock diapers, or wipes and find ourselves scrambling to do this in the morning.

"Allow for the unexpected." In other words, leave extra time. We basically start getting ready to go out as soon as we wake up so that we can take our time.

"Be flexible." Steady Mom suggests some days it might just be better to surrender and stay home! Very true. There will be plenty of sunny days this summer so if you're about to lose your cool over it, just relax and give it a try tomorrow.

Great tips.
