I wanted to share some email subscriptions and articles that I have been loving and that have helped me greatly in the world of Mommyhood.
1. Google Calendar: Ok, so I love a paper calendar and a handheld planner like nobody else. In fact, I still use them every day. My Mother-In-Law gave me this fantastic calendar for Christmas that is very detailed and includes cute little stickers and I use it religiously. My planner is attached to me like a needy 4-year-old named Jack. BUT. Jon LOATHES physical stuff. That sounds bad. Jon uses Google Calendar on his phone and we kept arguing over missed activities or saying I had plans but he needs the car to go to a meeting, etc. So, I jumped on the bandwagon and actually fell in love using GC. Here is a great article explaining everything you can accomplish on this App.
