  1. Mom Agenda Calendar Your schedule & the kids all in one convenient portable location. HURRAY for the genius mom that invented this product! I carry mine everywhere with me!

  2. Family Bulletin Board After school important paper destination! This is the central nervous "system" of our house. School papers, birthday invitations, permission slips. It all goes here!

  3. Mayfair Lane-Homework A must for organizing all the papers that come home from school! This product litarally saved my sanity. Each of my kids have 3 (okay maybe more) and I have like a million of them. I clip everything to them to keep stuff sorted and organized. They stick to magnet boards (like my family board mentioed above), bathroom mirrors, refrigerators. LOVE them!!!!!

  4. Real Simple pre-made grocery list – This is a super time save – list all the groceries on a single tear-off sheet so all moms need to do is mark an “x” by what they need at the grocery as they think of it throughout the week. Easy and fun fro kids to use too! I got mine at Target in the "Real Simple" section.

  5. Family Snow Gear Super easy and fun to use – slip off dirty wet winter gear and place it in this personalized tub. Keeps moms from having to clean up floors. Use another tub for kiddos to place wet mittens gloves and hats in after they take them off. This tub is not only cute, but can be wiped down inside in 1 second. Best of all, it can be used in the summer for kid’s Crocs and wet summer stuff, like toys or beach towels!

  6. Crock Pot - Quick easy meal maker! Perfect this time of year! Place whatever meal you want to make in a crock pot, add a little water to it and turn on while you are at work, running errands, doing carpool. When you get home in the late afternoon your meal with have cooked slow all day and be ready to serve! There are great crock pot recipes online. This is a huge time saver for moms and the clean up is fast and easy – one pot, rinse it out and stick it in the dishwasher…total Mommy Magic!

I feel it's important to add that neither I nor Mommy-Magic does not receive any compensation for recommending any of these products.

Happy New Year!

A big congratulations to all moms to surviving and pulling off the magic of the holidays. Little did I know that starting in November that preparing for the holiday season would be a part time job on top of my already full time job as a mom. Can we just talk about the holiday card for one minute? I had no idea 10 years ago when I opened cards from people with kids the exhausting process the mom went throiugh to get that sweet sentiment of holiday cheer in my hands. Getting the kids to all look in the same direction for the picture alone took what seem like an entire afternoon. After that, the ongoing process of trying to address 10 cards each night in my "free time" seemed to take most of the holiday season itself. I know you all can relate as moms. So with that, it is time to take a DEEP breathe and celebrate the magic we did create for our families. Although a bit behind as promised due to being the primary magic maker in December, I would like to announce the TARGET gift card winner......
Congratulation to Heather McCleod. Go spend it on something fun for yourself!

Happy New Year to all moms and CHEERS to you for making the holiday magic!

Halloween for Moms

So when did Halloween costumes equal dressing like a Hooter's girl? I actually LOVE Halloween and the entire costume transformation. My birthday is actually on Halloween so it truly is a major production in our house. Pumpkins, graveyard decorations in the front yard, spooky music during dinner. I go all out and I love it. Except finding a costume for me. Pushing 40 years old now and still trying to lose the baby weight (my baby is now 3 years old) there isn't much out there for a mom's like me that comes in a Party City pre-packaged costume bag. I now except that and try to embrace that I am not the trashy pirate type (anymore) or the slutty nurse (never my thing anyway). Instead, I went old school and got creative, like when I was actually a kid and we used to MAKE our costumes. Ahh, the good old days when Halloween was about the candy and the "trick or treat smell my feet, give me something good to eat!" and less about the four inch heels that match my dirty police officer "uniform." Do I sound jealous??? Nahhh (well, maybe a little), but instead of festering in my disappointment, I choose to embrace my costume making today and celebrate who I am - a Mom who is going to be a Sheriff for Halloween (and finally get the respect I deserve around here!) Yahoo and Giddy Up! Happy Halloween to all Moms!
