This is such an adorable book, and perfect for Christmas. Gingersnaps are a wonderful treat and the children in the book can’t wait to eat them. They come home, eager to taste the cookies, but find an empty plate and a trail of crumbs. The cute artwork follows the three as they go from room to room, thinking about who could have eaten the cookies. They find the usual suspects, like the cat and dog, but it’s someone else! Who could it be? Kids and grownups will love this story.
My unconventional organization method
When it comes to organization, most people use a planner, a wall calendar, or online scheduling tools. While I do own a planner for big events, my method for organizing my day-to-day tasks is…
My desk is constantly covered in them. On one sticky note, I write down all the tasks I need to do that day. As I complete each one, I cross it off and at the end of the day, I throw the sticky note away. On days where I struggle with motivation, I write down mundane things that I usually don’t think about like “eat lunch” and “take a bathroom break.” Even though I don’t need a reminder to do those things, it helps me to feel like I’ve accomplished things on the days where I feel down on myself. The fact is that in a single day, parents do a lot. We care for ourselves, cook, clean, change diapers, cook more, clean more, go to work, pay the bills, run errands, and then repeat without a break. Whether we acknowledge it or not, we do SO much. So, on my off days, I simply give myself credit for the things I would have done anyway because it feels amazing to throw away the completed sticky note at the end of the day.
