5 Apps for Mama’s to Manage the End of the School Year

 

It’s the end of the school year and for us it’s crunch time.  Time to get ready for exams, recitals, end of the year projects and of course physicals.  All of which seem to culminate all in one week.  I feel as if I am spread everywhere and constantly reminded about things that I forgot.  Just today the five year old reminded me about a one-time art class she was schedule to attend.  It escaped me somehow that the art class was the same time as her ballet class.  In typical anxiety ridden style I had twenty minutes of indecisive brain freeze.  Skip the paid for art class or skip the paid for dance class?  Lose –lose if you ask me.  Either way I am tired of quick thinking on my feet.  After a million and one decisions before we leave the house in the morning who’s got time for one more?  I don’t.  Instead I am gonna try out some of these apps to help me get my life together.  Hopefully some of them will work for you too.

StudyLock App (from studylockapp.com).  I absolutely love, love this idea.  Our teen doesn’t have a phone yet, but if she did I would most definitely put this app on her phone.  StudyLock will prevent any use of games, internet, cellphone, smartphone applications, and texting to other telephone numbers, (except for predetermined emergency phone numbers) until your technology loving child is able to unlock it by answering a question.  With this app they must answer Common Core State Standards questions in subjects such as Math, Science, History, Literature, and other scholastic subjects.  Love it!

Epicurious App (from epicurious.com) Don’t be like me.  Halfway home and realizing that you have thawed nothing.  It will be seven o’clock before you know it and pairs of eyes looking for dinner.  This Epicurious App I like because I can make a shopping list and get ideas for recipes.

Stretch App I don’t know about you but after a long day I am tense.  Especially in my neck and shoulders after typing away all day at my laptop.  I like this app because I am stumped after reaching for my toes and stretching to the sky as to what I should do next.  This app helps me think of great stretches and I feel so much better afterwards.
