Many of you are probably reading this as you spoon sweet potatoes into your baby’s mouth, pick Sophie the Giraffe teether off the ground with your foot and spin a plate or two on your head (you’d better be careful, by the way, because they totally discontinued that china pattern). Because we multi-tasking, plate-spinning moms are always looking for more ways to save precious time, Clorox has partnered with author Karen Kauffman to compile an e-book called — you guessed it — “If Mom Had Three Minutes,” which will be full of such time-saving tips inspired by moms, for moms.
For example, there is no way I am getting my butt to the gym. I barely did it before kids (paying the credit card bill for the gym membership I never used was the only sweat I ever worked up), and now that I have a toddler and baby…? Uh, yeah, me finding the time and energy to go to the gym is about as likely as Howard Stern getting honored by the Feminist Majority Foundation. So, instead, I try to work out while I’m watching the kids: squats as I’m holding and singing Drew to sleep in front of his crib (a lovely visual, I know) and vigorous dance moves to Fresh Beat Band with Skye in front of the TV. Yes, I know the only visual more disturbing than me squatting in the dark is me dancing to “Loco Legs” without the benefit of margaritas, but my point is… my glutes aren’t half-bad now.
If you happen to have a time-saving tip of your own — such as throwing on a hat instead of washing your hair and/or entertaining your toddler by letting her use the disinfectant wipes to clean your floors and tables…not that I would know anything about EITHER of those (*ahem*) — be sure to share it on the “If Mom Had Three Minutes” tab on Clorox’s Facebook page or in the comments section of this post. You’ll not only receive a fifty cent coupon good for any Clorox product, but your wisdom may also help inspire the tips included in the “If Mom Had Three Minutes” e-book, which will be available for download this May.
Seriously. Have you ever tried side lunges to Twist’s rap jams while hoisting a lazy 30-lb. toddler who refuses to dance on her own? It’s no joke! (Except to our neighbors walking by the window, that is.)
This sponsored post is brought to you by Clorox — meaning: I am being compensated by The Clorox Company to talk about my favorite time-saving, multi-tasking tip(s) as part of the If Mom Had Three Minutes program — although I had Skye wiping down our house with their disinfectant wipes WAY before this sponsorship came about, I kid you not.
