Spring is so close, yet so far away (at least it is in the unpredictable state of Texas)! But, still the season is about to change and in our home, we are getting ready for spring cleaning. The kids are dreading it, but I’m so ready. There’s a lot to do to prepare for spring. With the warmer weather comes lawn maintenance, spring sports, and decluttering. To help you, and me, get our spring cleaning done quickly, I’ve created this list of tips to stay on track and not get sidetracked by the boxes of baby items that send me down memory lane for a couple of hours.

Valentine’s Day is just around the corner and that means that it’s time to start thinking about gifts for the kids to hand out to their classmates. While I would love to say I’m the crafty kind, I usually just grab a bag of M&M’s, have the kids write their classmate’s names on it and call it a day.
