A Grandkid-friendly home, Suzanna Kaye

Are You Overwhelming Your Grandkids?

Are You Overwhelming Your Grandkids?

Author: Suzanna Kaye

Too much is overwhelming. Too many toys, activities, and clutter can add a lot of stress to a kid, but they can’t express it. It can lead to behavior problems and higher anxiety for kids. Being in a home other than their own is already an adjustment, giving them a calm space helps them create strong, happy associations with your home. Here are 4 easy ways.

Lions and Tigers and Bears, Oh My! I do so love that part of the Wizard of Oz as they walk in lock step along the yellow brick road. But truthfully, who has time for that?

Welcome to Part 2 of our Digital Life Series.  Today we’re diving into a foundational app, calendars! Most of us already have a calendar on our phone but let’s talk about how to transition from our day planners to our online calendars.  Continue reading

Step ONE: Do the biggest nastiest task first. Eat that frog!
I don’t know about you but if I have a big nastiest ugly toad looming over my day…. it makes everything harder. I’ve built it up into something paralyzing. Continue reading

Containing Kids Toys


 

[siteorigin_widget class=”SiteOrigin_Widget_Hero_Widget”][/siteorigin_widget]

We’ve all seen the movie Toy Story right? I’m pretty sure that’s close to how it actually works. Toys getting up in the middle of the night makes way more sense than our precious angels making such giant messes, right?

Sure.  Continue reading

How One Notebook Changed My Work Day!


 

[siteorigin_widget class=”SiteOrigin_Widget_Hero_Widget”][/siteorigin_widget]

You know I have more than a few notebooks right?  In a previous facebook live I let you peek into my closet at my stock (see it here). I just love a fresh notebook. Don’t get me wrong I’m all for going paperless but the act of writing things down is part of how I think. Continue reading

Organizing for Humans that Need to SEE Things

[siteorigin_widget class=”SiteOrigin_Widget_Hero_Widget”][/siteorigin_widget]

I love personality tests. Whether it’s the ENFP, INFJ or whatever (find that test here) Or just a quiz in cosmo I take all of them! I tell myself it’s because I get a deeper understanding of self but they’re just fun. Continue reading

[siteorigin_widget class=”SiteOrigin_Widget_Hero_Widget”][/siteorigin_widget]

Batching. When I hear this my brain goes straight to chocolate chip cookies. Yes, that’s right, a batch of chocolate chip cookies. My brain has already created a fantasy of them hot and fresh but that’s not really what we’re going to cover right now. 

Nope, this is TASK BATCHING.

Give Yourself the PERMISSION You Need To ASK For HELP

[siteorigin_widget class=”SiteOrigin_Widget_Hero_Widget”][/siteorigin_widget]

This is not Suzanna – this is her super fantastic assistant. She would call me that even if I wasn’t the one writing this, so it’s not cheating.  Promise.

I started that way because I want to tell you about something personal and it would be strange and awkward to not acknowledge my own story.  I’m daydreaming how this would look if someone approached Suzanna in the grocery store about it, and I’m giggling, but I need to get to the point.
