Mom Stays Organized Through It All



How this momma of three, special needs, stay-at-home mom, and entrepreneur, keeps it all together.

It’s easy. I write it all down!

I keep a planner to schedule my children’s doctor appointments, therapies, school, and after-school events. I include all of my work events and family functions, such as soccer games, birthdays, parties, treatments, and of course, doctor appointments. At the beginning of each month, I write it down on a dry erase board where I keep what I like to call command central. I have it located in a central location of our house on an easily visible wall. Everything significant is kept there, such as my “Important and Emergency Phone Numbers Guide, addresses, medications the children take, emergency procedures for my son if he were to have a shunt malfunction or seizure. I also have reward sheets in this area for completing morning routines to get us up and out of the house on time.

Every morning I glance over at the board to ensure I don’t have something going on that day. After that, I look at my daily to-do list and decide the priority for the day for business and personal.


It’s a great feeling to cross things off the list!

It also helps with my ADHD to focus on the tasks I have at hand for the day. Our board also allows everyone in the household to know who is going where and what is coming up. If by chance, we have a babysitter, family, or friend staying with the kids while my husband or I am not home, they have all the vital information they need at a glance.
