I know most people get a new calendar in January. But when you are a mom of school aged children, life doesn’t start in January. Life starts in September. So I get my calendars in August. Or more specifically today.
I have tried a few different “mom” calendars. And I don’t think they are too different. But this year I went back to the Mom’s Plan-It Calendar for a few reasons.
First off the main reason I love these “mom calendars” is that there are different lines each day for each member of the family. So your day isn’t necessarily laid out chronologically but it helps me see where everyone is at all times. But it is a giant problem to have to write their names out on each line each month. I know, I have a rough life. But this calendar allows you to write the names down the side of the calendar permanently and then just the number part of the calendar changes. It is quite possible none of this makes sense, but it might if you saw the calendar. Seriously. It is a big deal.
Secondly there are stickers. Lots of stickers. Do we ever outgrow our love of stickers? I can’t tell you how much more fun it is to stick a doctor sticker on a date then writing it out. You know what I am realizing writing this post? I am a giant nerd. Who knew?
I also love that there is a fair amount of room each day to write what is happening because unfortunately we are busy people. And I live by the rule in my house that if it isn’t on the calendar it isn’t happening. So I need room to make sure everything is written down.
Lastly there is a mini, one week calendar that has a magnet to go on your fridge. It is dry erasable so you can have the family see their week at a glance. Is that exciting to anyone but me? A mini calendar? Seriously. I am a nerd.
I paid for my calendar with my own money. The lovely people at Mom’s Plan-It have nothing to do with me. I just have a weird obsession with my mom calendar and thought maybe you would appreciate my nerdiness.
