The Mother of All Inventions

Every Thursday, I am going to post about something that I do at home to make my life easier as a parent. I would love to read your ideas, too, so feel free to post the same on your blog or simply share in the comments! For this week, I am going to fill you in on how I have managed to devote time to my blog AND spend guilt-free snuggle time with my daughter. (Betcha thought that was never going to happen, right?)

I present to you: the MacBook split screen.

On one side of the screen (side depends on which side my daughter is snuggling) I have a Sesame Street podcast playing in a minimized iTunes window. The podcasts are free, and each teaches a word and lesson. Baby gets to learn while I get to socialize. Double win!

The other side of the screen is reserved for my Safari browser. I can blog, tweet, and etsy to my hearts desire, all while snuggling with Danger and smelling that sweet baby smell of her hair.

What do you do at home to make life easier? Are you going to try my computer technique? Let me know how it works for you! Take care!

p.s. I haven't included any new pictures of Danger for a while, so enjoy this beautiful picture of my little snugglebug cuddling with her American Girl babies!
