Every Mother’s Best Kept Secret Is Finally Revealed

Are you ever puzzled at how some moms seem to always have it together?

You know the one. The mom who always has everything she needs, at the exact right moment, and is always one step ahead of the rest.

But the good news is, you can learn her secret, and it’s not as complicated as you think.

In fact, by adding this simple trick to your life, you can shave hours of wasted time from your schedule, and add minutes of efficiency back to your schedule.

So what’s the big secret?

Look at it this way, there are two types of people in this world – those that prepare, and those that react.

Not that one can ever really prepare for all life can chuck your way, but you can do your part to prepare as much as possible, so when life really gets crazy the rest is just mechanics.

Think about a typical crazy morning.

You’re rushing out of the house. Wiping up spills and faces. Grabbing your phone, hoping you remembered to plug it in last night and it’s charged, and praying you have enough diapers in the diaper bag.

Surviving your mad dash to the car, you feel accomplished.

Doing a mental checklist, you start to go over the things you need to accomplish that day.

But as you’re driving, suddenly it hits you.

You forgot to pack wipes and diapers, and you’re headed to the babysitter’s house.

And you are late.

Which means, you have no time to turn around. Or stop at a store. And traffic is an absolute nightmare, and you’re in a standstill.

Enter in mom’s best kept secret.

While you did remember your diaper bag, it isn’t helping you right now, because you didn’t have a chance to refill it.

But, that’s when you relax knowing you have an extra emergency bag packed in the car for situations like this.

Yes, having an extra simple emergency bag in the car can save you a ton of unnecessary stress and anxiety.

Knowing you have everything you need – diapers, extra clothes, lotion, even an extra favorite blanket or toy, can take the weight of the world off your shoulders.

Wondering what to put in your extra bag?

Think through the items you use on a daily basis and consider packing a spare.

Extra onesies. Pacifiers. Bibs and bottles.

Even think of items you might forget. A pair of flats. A sweater. Chapstick. Headache medicine. Band-Aids.

The list goes on and on.

By having your emergency mom bag in the car, you can breathe a sigh of relief knowing it really is going to be okay.

But remember, the key to keeping an emergency bag is to make sure you actually keep it filled!

Don’t forget to replace the items you use.

And try not to deliberately get in the habit of not packing your regular bag, because you’ve become accustomed to using the backup version.

But on that truly stressful day, when you need it most, you can sit back and feel proud, knowing you planned ahead.

And then, you can confidently walk into your babysitter’s house, with a fully stocked bag, and get on with the rest of your day with ease.
