It’s Sunday night. Kendall goes back to school this week. He starts k-4 (preschool) on Tuesday. I feel like this year is a dress rehearsal for the big time next year.

I can’t be taking him to Kindergarten 5 minutes late every day. I can’t be forgetting his school events and running home to fetch money and important papers I was supposed to return that morning.

It’s a struggle for me, this staying organized thing. Somedays I do okay… most days I’m treading water.

Tonight, as I have for the last week or so, I sat down with my new momAgenda Mini-Daily and wrote out my tasks for the next 2 days. It’s just another step toward mastering this “organized-ish mom” thing that I need to have a handle on before we’re dealing with Kindergarten.

I’m loving the format of the Mini-Daily because I find it easier to write just what I need to get done in the next 48 hours down, and that helps me feel less overwhelmed. I have a Home Office Edition that I use to write out long-term goals, future events and deadlines that usually stays right by my computer on my desk. My Mini-Daily can go with me anywhere, though, and it’s usually next to my bed… or in the playroom (which may be why there’s a lovely and enormous pen mark zigged and zagged all over the front of it already, compliments of budding artist Leyna).

I know many of you are gearing up for another year of organized chaos with back-to-school looming. I’m excited to hook one of you up with a momAgenda Mini-Daily planner of your own! Just follow the instructions in the widget below.

*Disclosure- momAgenda provided the planner for me to review. All opinions and images are my own.

  1. I love to plan in the late evening after the kids are in bed! I can look at the next day and feel ready for it the next morning!

  2. I keep my daily agenda on the calendar in our kitchen but I don’t have anything in my bag to keep me reminded. Mom brain + no planner = many excuses for not being on time to places.

  3. Umm whenever something pops in my head, wherever I am, and with whatever is in front of me. Bags…paper towels…receipts….sometimes I get lucky and there is actually paper!

  4. I use a calendar book from the $1 store and my phone’s calendar. I normally just jot things down as they come up.

  • He demands cuddle time. Always has. It's inconvenient some days, but he's not about to let himself get lost in the shuffle. I'm glad he reminds me to slow down. #loloyolo
  • Sweet big baby 💙
  • Arlo chose Kendall when he was just 8 weeks old. They have a special bond. Looking forward to reuniting them after our RV trip around the country. Until then, Arlo is going to an amazing foster family who has promised to send us lots of pictures and updates.
  • Those eyes 😍
  • Meanwhile, this one turns 4 in 5 days. 😭😭😭 #timeisanasshole
  • A little sad he's almost too big for the @dockatot Deluxe+ and toy bar. Can you believe he's 7 months old now? 😫😭👋🏻 #dockatot
  • He always comes home in the middle of nap time and climbs in bed with us.
  • I always keep teething oil in my bag these days. He has FOUR top teeth trying to come through. 😫I try not to stick dirty fingers in his mouth, especially right after I pump gas. 🤢So I also keep some @handzies soap and water wipes with me. #inmypurse
