Rock Your Routine and Be the Happiest Mommy on the Block

Moms will concur--routines and creative ideas help your day and save your sanity. And once you've established a routine that works, the inclination is to stick with it until the kids are off to college. But sometimes the rigidity of a 'tight ship' doesn't allow much time for good-old fashioned, spur-of-the-moment fun. Well, hang on to your itinerary because here comes Eat, Nap, Play!

Written by moms for moms, this timely guide centers on back-to-basics philosophies: spend quality time with your kids and spend less money. But this is not a guilt trip--it's a fun-filled adventure.
