As a busy mom of 2 little boys I’ve learned a few tricks to help get me through the long days and today I’m sharing two of my best tricks with you all.
Trick #1- Have a Plan
Make that a written plan. When you’re pregnant they tell you that you’re going to get pregnancy brain and they’re right, pregnancy brain is real. So is mom brain. I blame it on the lack of sleep. Even if you’re not a mom we all get busy at times and things can slip through the cracks.
I find that writing things down- appointments, my to-do list, my meal plan, etc. helps me to remember them. Writing it all down helps me not to forget but it also enables me not to stress about forgetting something.
I especially like to sit down at night and write out my schedule for the next day because then I can totally turn off my brain to relax and then get some sleep.
I write it all down on a daily planner page.

Trick #2- An Afternoon Treat
We all need something to look forward to. I have two boys- one in elementary school and one in preschool. My preschooler is with me most of the day so we are pretty busy. With my boys in different school buildings I do a fair amount of running around in the car.
As I reward for having a productive day I usually enjoy a special drink or snack on the way to pick them up from school. Having a little reward to look forward to helps me be productive and also feel good about what I have accomplished.
This week I picked up some delicious Dunkin’ Donuts Iced Coffees at Giant Eagle. You can find them in the Soft Drinks/Tea aisle.
Dunkin’ Donuts new bottled Iced Coffees have a smooth, flavorful coffee taste. They have a few different flavors but my favorite is the Mocha.
Dunkin’ Donuts Iced Coffee gives me a little boost to help me get things done. I savor my refreshing iced coffee while picking the boys up from school then when we get home I’m able to hit the ground running again and help with homework, dinner, and more playtime with my boys. Dunkin’ Donuts helps the everyday people who keep America running keep themselves running every day.
