Top tips to keep parenting fun and fabulous

My golden nugget for keeping life fun and fabulous after you have kids is to stay focused and be prepared ahead of time no matter what. It’s the best advice my mom every gave me. She lived by it. Now I live by it. And I’m finding it is helping my home lifestyle beyond words. If I’m having a party at my house, I make sure that most every single thing is done from food to decorations to any other type of preparation 3 days ahead of time. Well, you can’t cook 3 days ahead of time. But you get my drift. If you’re ordering a costume for your kids’ Halloween party or play and you know you need to have it by this certain date, order it weeks ahead of time. Never, ever leave things to the last minute, because kids get sick. Things happen. You never know what’s going to happen, especially with children and family life. And if you’re organized, and you’re always prepared days or weeks ahead of time if you’re able, it’s going to make your life all the more relaxed and stress free. And that to me is fabulous.
