We’ve Been Busy Bees

29 Sep

The faculty at Smart Mom University has been so busy working on lots of great new things for busy parents, grandparents, teachers and caregivers. We are so excited to share them with you beginning in October.

A few months ago, my husband said that if he were the primary caregiver, he wouldn’t know what to do with the kids all day. So of course, I told him to go to Smart Mom University and it would answer all of his questions! Being the linear type of guy that he is, he said he would rather have it laid out day-by-day. So, that’s what we did!

Beginning in October, we will produce a monthly calendar and suggest one simple activity you can incorporate into your family’s day for every day of the month. Daily theme ideas will come from Holiday Insights, bizarre, wacky and unusual holidays as well as traditional monthly holidays. All you have to do is download the calendar and you’ll have a month’s worth of activities at your fingertips. We’ve even provided links to directions and how-to information for each activity.

Not only that, we’ll add unique daily information on our Twitter and Facebook pages and we’ll post a daily blog tying into the activities or from our wonderful guest bloggers . Make sure you’ve signed up to get all of this great information and be sure to tell your friends.

We also excited to introduce you to our newest partner, Angela, at Anything But Perfect, who designed the adorable graphics for our calendars. She’s a stay-at-home mom to two boys and is a self-taught graphic designer. You have to visit her site for more fantastic, FREE downloads. I’ve already downloaded her “No Soliciting” sign and her “We’re out of candy” sign for Halloween. (Just in case, of course.) Angela also has an Etsy shop where she sells school notes with editable text fields. Perfect for any busy parent. We are so excited to be working with her!

That should be enough to digest for the time being. We’ll drop you hints as we get ready to share our other exciting happenings but, in the meantime, be sure to visit Smart Mom University for lots of new parenting information.
