When you are a parent, logistics are everything. Whether you have 1 child or 5, it’s all about making sure that you have everything organized so that the kids are always clothed, fed, have their school work done, are at their respective activities (with clean uniforms on), playdates are scheduled, and then, to top it off, there is laundry, a house to keep tidy, pets to care for, making sure the bills are paid on time and, oh yes, many times, your own job to go to each and every day.
