As soon as you finish your last bite of pumpkin pie, a bell will toll throughout the nation and people will drop their forks, change into the running shoes they brought to dinner, and rush off to the nearest department store for a killer deal on toaster ovens.

The Laid-Back Approach to Home Management
No matter what anybody says, being a stay-at-home mom IS a tough job–a tough, sticky, loud, round-the-clock, sleep-leeching job with a description that could fill an entire book.
It sounds overwhelming, but it’s nothing you can’t handle if you simplify your approach to work more efficiently.
Well, well, well… If it isn’t Thanksgiving-the notorious holiday when all self-control goes out the window. I deem it responsible for the success of both fad dieting and bikini boot camp. Despite the risks of feeling like the Stay Puft marshmallow guy from Ghostbusters, the hostess in me is looking forward to enjoying my family and of course, the planning. Naturally, when you love planning as much as I do, you make planning pages to enhance the experience, making it more of a sacred ritual.

Kids are expensive enough as it is, so it made sense to us.
