Works For Me Wednesday

I have been reading these for a few weeks now & through Sandra's blog. I love all these cool ideas & tips. These women are great! So I decided to try my best to start participating. I don't have alot of great life changing ideas but I do my best. So here it goes..... Now as you all know my husband is deployed to Iraq & we have 3 small children. So I need as many short cuts as I can get! So if I go out for the day (i.e. visiting family) & know we will be out past bedtimes. I pack the kids pajamas & before we leave to come home. I just change them put them into the car & by the time we are home they go from carseats to beds.
I know, silly little shortcut but hey it works for me!!!

Yeah!!!!!!!!! I do the same thing. Also lately we have been leaving early in the morning to go house hunting up in PA. What I do is. The night before have their clothes out and ready to go in their bedrooms, I get up pack up the car get myself ready and start the car and just before we leave I will start getting them ready one at a time I get one dressed while they are half asleep then put that one in the car and then on to the next. A soon as they're all packed up in the car we can take off and they will sleep for a few more hours before I have to stop and feed them.

I just found you today through WFMW

Ditto to what Tina and Aunt Murry said! Thanks for your husband's service and your whole family's sacrifice. I really appreciate what you are all doing.

That is an awesome idea Court :)

Next time I go somewhere and we're planning on being late, I'm definitely taking their pj's.

Thanks for such an neat idea, I love it :)

I thought I was the only one in the world that would put my child in the car in pajamas. Man this just made my day. I feel so glad to know someone else has been in my shoes. Hats off to you. :-) I am glad you found my blog too. We have way too much in COMMON. Kind of scary. HAHAH :-)

We travel frequently to visit family 6 hours away. It's always bedtime by the time we arrive and I always make them travel in pjs. LOVE IT! Thanks to you and your DH for your sacrifices. I have 4 small children- not sure how you do it by yourself!

Maria said...

that is a wonderful idea! I may just put mine in pj's before we leave for grandmommie's friday night.

I too want to add my big thank you for your family for the sacrifices you have made.

That IS a great idea! Then no only can they go straight to bed you don't have to worry about the constant struggles of "putting the p.j.'s on" when they are tired and groggy!
