What Can't You Live Without?

Pin it button big

Real Simple's special Family edition posed this question to moms back in the Fall issue, and we've been thinking about it for a while. These days dark chocolate, red wine, and freshly brewed coffee top our list. Other moms in survey answered everything from their Blackberry to the BabyBjorn carrier.

Also on the list:

• A timer to set so that a child knows when it's five minutes until bedtime and that's that. See our previous post on timers.

• Audiobooks for long books and long car trips.

• A camera for capturing all of those special moments.

• A sense of humor- no explanation needed.

Parents- what can't you live without?
