Parenting On The Go with YO!

Shake off the blues and get out this weekend…

There will always be washing, housework and errands to run during the few “free” hours you get on the weekend.  But, remember this is the opportunity for you to make memories that will last a lifetime.  Kids grow up really fast. Use your time wisely.  There will always be a million things that need to get done.. but building memories won’t come up as often.

If we put half as much time into raising our kids as we do our “jobs” our kids would BE and HAVE everything they need to be successful.   Parenting is a JOB.  Don’t get fired.

Make the best out of weekends.   Remember it’s their weekend too!
