As children get older, but not yet old enough to drive themselves moms begin to feel a bit like a taxi service.
Some events you are going to want to just put all work away and watch others you are going to end up with a lot of sit around and wait until its done time.
Here is a few ways I make use of my mom taxi wait time:
1. I grab my laptop, a small folding table and a folding chair and either type away under a shade tree, or in my SUV.
2. I bring a long a book a blanket and a pillow and make a nest within my SUV to destress.
3. I might hang out in the facility itself and watch my children practice soccer while I chat with the other parents and work on my locker hooking or knitting.
4. I bring a list of a few nearby errands I could complete in the time frame.
Now its your turn to brainstorm how you could best use your time as a mom taxi in waiting.
