I Couldn't Live Without...


On a daily basis, there are certain things I rely on to keep me sane/less frantic/better.

Here are a few items I would rather not live without:

  • Black yoga pants.  The SAHM uniform.  I'm no exception.
  • Coffee.  Obviously.
  • My Laptop.  For all my very, very important [distractions] writing and networking.
  • Luna Bars.*  Preferably the Peanut Honey Pretzel, Vanilla Almond, or the harder-to-find Peanut Butter Cookie flavor.

  • The Best of the Wiggles CD.  A must for longer car rides (with children).
  • Sam Adams or Blue Moon Seasonal Variety Packs.  A surprise party in your fridge.
  • Mum-Mums.  To quiet a fussy or teething baby.
  • Z Bars.  To quiet a fussy or teething toddler or preschooler.  We keep a stockpile of these for times [often] when my son won't eat anything else.
  • Little Einstein's Mission Celebration DVD.  Not going to lie.  This DVD has saved my sanity more than a few times.


  • Undereye Concealer.  Need I explain?
  • My Kindle.  I love reading, and I never thought I'd give up actual books, but I'm hooked on Kindles.  (Bonus: The free preschool apps are perfect for travel or quiet time!).
  • Nars The Multiple Color Stick.  Helps me look like a shadow of my former self.  Expensive, but it lasts forever.
  • Dark Chocolate Mini Reeses cups.  No words, people, no words.

What are some of your sanity-savers?  Please comment and share!
