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 @happy.loud.life 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
