I am so grateful to have a husband that is super hands-on with our kids and our household! Cameron and I have a pretty good system of splitting the workload 50/50. While he engages in tickle fights with Cami and Hendrix, I wash and fold laundry. While I build peg towers with the kids, Cameron washes dishes. That being said, even in a home where both parents take an active role with the kids and the chores, there is just something about mamas that make us the ultimate “command center” for the goings on of the household. As I prepare both kids to get back into the swing of things for the new school year, I am relying on a few hacks I have learned that make #momlife so much easier.
