Loading and unloading the dishwasher is a routine task that is much better than washing and drying by hand. Thanks to a recent Rachael Ray episode I now know that my dishwasher can do more than scrub and sanitize plates and spoons. Check it out- you can clean baseball caps, makeup and hair curlers, fake flowers (my favorite tip), plastic toys and glass bulb light fixtures. A repairman also just taught me that a cup of diluted white vinegar on the top shelf will ensure your glassware comes out clear and streak free. I know this all might sound very 'chick,' but isn't that the point? Utilizing things she already has, meeting her in her kitchen, which is the hub of many households, and helping her clean before spring has even sprung is not only endearing but memorable stuff she'll talk to her friends about. Remember that Pantene commercial? She'll tell two friends, and they'll tell two friends and so on and so on and so on.....

Cut yourself and the kids some slack.
Get creative; jumping jacks out of others way at an airport could help a pent up kid relax.
