If you’re not organized and have little sense of time, parenting is an extremely hard task for you to undertake. That’s saying something, because parenting for organized couples is hard enough as it is. You lose track of time taking care of your children’s incessant needs, their multitude of questions, and wiping their tears. But do yourself a favor and read up on these 23 parenting life hacks that will help unburden you of some of the load you carry.
1. Glue over the holes in your bath time rubber toys.
After a certain period of time, your kid’s bath time play pals will start looking a little worse for wear. To combat this, fill the hole in them with hot glue to prevent them from growing mold. This also makes them more durable.
2. Purchase magnetic cups.
Kids always manage to lose things and cups are no exception. To save yourself from looking for cups they’ve lost, invest in magnet cups. They’re cheap and hard to lose.
3. Baby mop.
Hey, if they’re going to be crawling all over the place, they might as well do some cleaning at the same time!
4. The craft room should have lint rollers.
Kids should come with an alarm button that sounds off whenever they get excited and are about to throw glitter around, because in my experience, it has happened way too much, and I’ve been unprepared most of the time. Not any more. A lint roller should save you from glitter Armageddon.
