One kid is at school, the other is watching a 20-minute episode of The Backyardigans on TV and I need to draft two articles, submit an essay and schedule an interview. Ever feel that way?

Being a mom is unpredictable, it is hard work and yes, it is worth it. But no one is perfect. So, take a deep breath and relax.
How do you manage your time?
