Well, we know how that feels and we think we could give you some tips to get through your busiest days !

My partner and I share our agendas and record all the activities of our day. It helps us so much to plan our lives a little, and most importantly, whether or not a person is available to pick up the little ones etc.
2. Have a large bank of babysitters

When you have a series of days that start early and never end, Get a V8 ™ in the early afternoon. It’s perfect for a quick pick me up in the afternoon. You can also go for a quick workout or even a walk, And if possible nothing picks you up like a cold shower.

Drag your list with you everywhere, so you can tell yourself that if you have a two minutes somewhere in your day, you can do less important things. With this method, you will feel a lot more efficient …
