What is the best advice for juggling mommyhood and running a business (or volunteering,
My advice for moms out there is, first of all, relax. Prioritize activities and get everyone’s activities on a calendar. Many times, I ended up taking one of my kids to work and those were the best days.. It’s easier for me now because my kids are adults now. The challenges I face now are that two of my kids live in different states and making the time to travel to visit them.

I would tell the “old me” it’s ok. Make mistakes, be bold, and go for it. Don’t be so hard on yourself!
Funniest shortcut/routine for helping you through parenthood?
Lots of laughter. Trusting them.
