What are my top tips to surviving an entire day with my kids? You know I think there are 2 things that help me a lot; structure and organization. With my wife being on 10 to 12 hours a day it seems really daunting upfront but when it really comes down to it, it is 3 meals, it is 2 to 3 activity, a nap time, and she is home. What I try to do is in the morning, i try to do something completely based around them. I will take them to a playground or go for a walk and in the afternoon If I need to get something done from me or family says it is grocery shopping I really try and include them in what we are doing let them pick the fruits, let them pick the vegetables, make them feel involved and all avoid any kind of tantrums or breakdowns. Organization, knowing that everything has its place and knowing where everything is that I need at the time helps me a ton.
