Well, our new kitchen is finally coming together! We've got most of the big items out of the way which (naturally) leaes me to fret about the small ones.

The Snack Bin

The last Sanity Saver I'd like to share with you today is the method I use to keep the kids out of the pantry all day. (Do you have kids who think they are hungry every time they are bored? How frustrating!!!) Here is what I do: FIRST: Schedule your snack times. Stick to specific times of the day so your kids know what to expect. Our schedule goes like this (on days we are home all day, of course) 8am Breakfast 10am Snack Noon Lunch 2pm Snack 4pm Snack 6pm Dinner It seems like my … [Read more...]
