How to Get More Done (And a Giveaway!)

Probably the number one question I get in life (other than oh my gosh, you lived in Paris? How was it?) is how on earth do you get so much done?

tips for moms to get more done via

I’d like to say it’s because of my superhuman speed or secret army of minions at my beck and call… But the truth is, as a stay-at-home mom of three (4, 2, and 5 months) with two part-time jobs, extensive church commitments, and a need to paint everything in sight 😉 , I have to use every free moment to stay on top of things. And the “prime time” (as any mom of little ones can tell you) is nap time.

Yesterday during naps, I painted my china cabinet. Last week, I painted the dining room table, sewed stockings, and had a massive Christmas photoshoot with the other professional photographer in my home – my 4-year-old (who doesn’t nap anymore). Seriously, he took pictures of every Christmas decoration he could get his hands on… I’ll have to share them with you all soon.

But I digress… The point is that nap time is my golden hour, but I never would be able to accomplish anything if I didn’t know my children were safe. So I’d like to share a very important addition to my little girl’s nursery (which you can tour here if you like): a Levana video monitor.

Do you see it mounted on the wall above the crib? It has two cameras, so I can put one in her room and one in the boys’ room. The cameras (which I think are fairly subtle) have the ability to pan, tilt, and zoom silently so I can check on my baby without waking her.

This thing has allowed me to convert an industrial spool into an outdoor table during nap time, watch my older boys build sand castles on the new back porch while little sister sleeps, and even keep an eye on the boys when they play upstairs in their room. The large, color screen makes it easy to see what they’re doing, and it has so many other features you can read about here.

If you have little ones, you know.

You have to use every moment you can to keep up with life, but you need to know they’re safe. This monitor has helped me do that. So now for the fun part… We have THREE to give away!
