Re: Tips for a new working mom

Great tips above. Agree with all of ththe above except for the going to bed early, I get the kids down and then get so excited about having ‘alone’ time that I don’t go to bed til 11pm or later.

Hi, we hired a ball pit and slide from a company called 'Dancing Cubs' for my son's 3rd birthday party - was very popular, they came and set it up and we had no issues. Think they were the most reasonable that i found on the internet.
