One word the bathroom!  Yup, that one!  The place us moms run to and hide out in.  Our saving grace when we need a little time out from the family.  The folks over at Clorox have created TheCloroxLounge.com.  A go-to site for mom’s to get away.  Now we have another hide out spot.  The Clorox Lounge is hosted by the one and only comedian, mom and actress Sherri Shepherd.

Do you have any crazy parenting tactics?  I have a few up my sleeve.  Some I’m super proud of and one or two I’m super embarrassed to say I do.   Right now I have a very handy tactic for getting us from place to place without all the drama.  My three year old  has an obsession with his favorite restaurants.  Which makes for interesting car rides when we drive by his favorite places.  I’ve had to resort to telling my boy places are closed and parks are only open at certain times of day.  Like when mommy is in a rush, the parks close or when we already have plans Chuck E Cheese won’t open.  Even if there are people or cars my kiddo will announce”the workers are the workers cleaning up”.  It is a little sly and even a little bit of a white lie, but it gets us where we need to be with no tears shed.  I let him go into our home calendar and pick one day that is free in the current month and let that be his day to pick where he wants to go.  It works well and he knows that mommy will make sure they are going to be open, just for us.  Mommy can work magic, and I love the simplicity of children under 4.
