Life as a parent can be crazy. Doctor’s appointments, extra curricular activities, family potlucks, birthday parties….the list goes on.
A little organization can really pull your life together when it’s getting the best of you. I’ve been feeling overwhelmed the past few months as we prepared for Alex to enter preschool. Not only did we have to prepare for school but we had weddings, cardiologist appointments, pediatric appointments for my youngest, a huge list of summer birthdays to keep track of, and on top of that, I am a blogger. Sometimes it’s a little hard to keep track of everything.
When I was given the chance to review a Family_time.mine planner, I jumped on the opportunity! With three lovely covers to choose from, I was immediately drawn to Petites Fleurs. The other two styles are Dutch Treat and Free Bird.
Details of the Family_time.mine Planner
Dimensions: 8.5″ x 11″ (average notebook size)
140 pages available for download ($12) or purchase ($24.99)
Dates included at this time are Aug 2014 – December 2015
Plastic covers bound with a sturdy plastic coil
Contact/emergency information sheets
I received a hard copy ($24.99 value) of the planner and I love it! Both the front and back covers are durable and the back has a built in folder to keep a few items in. Inside you’ll find master schedules for the season, monthly calendars, and my favorite: the lined weekly planners!
Family_time.mine has just about everything I can think of needing in a planner. There are spaces for emergency contacts, personal contacts, favorite take-out numbers, dentist and doctor info, holidays for the upcoming year, info for the babysitter, and more. There is even a page with information on how to get started using the planner!
This planner is really up to date with what the modern parent needs. We may have cell phones to keep track of things but face it, technology is not always the most reliable. Sometimes classic pen and paper is the safest way to keep all of your important schedules and information on hand. Not to mention, with everything in one place, it’s never been easier to leave the kids with someone else last minute! The sitter or relative can look at the To-Do list or meal time and plans for the kids and know exactly how to follow the routine you’ve worked so hard to get your kids used to.
