School is back in session and parents are more busy than ever with trying to keep up with their kids’ schedules while managing agendas of their own. Tamera Mowry-Housley knows all about being a working mom and gives a few mommy tips on how to keep everything in order.


Seize every opportunity

“Activities like chores, laundry, errands or shopping aren’t always fun for kids, but giving your little ones more of a role in your daily activities allows you all to spend more time together, without having to sacrifice the to-do list.”

Be an active family

“I can’t exactly take Aden to spin class, but everyday activities like stretching, yoga, at home routines and walking can be done with kids too.”

Set the tone for the future

“Find an activity the whole fam likes, like playing a certain game to going to a favorite lunch spot, and regularly make a point to do that. Everyone can look forward to it as you grow together. Plus, it will keep you in check – if you can’t remember the last time you did x activity, it’s been way too long!”

Make the most of bedtime

“I cherish the moments I spend reading with Aden, and since I know he loves it too, it’s easier for me to make it a priority. You can use something like your baby’s bedtime as a moment for you to get away from whatever task you’re working on in the evening, and unwind with the family for a few. If you or your partner can’t be home at bedtime, you could try working a ritual into another time of day that works best.”

Make cooking a family activity

“Aden’s at the age where I always have him by my side, even when preparing meals, so we get that time together. When he’s older, I hope he’ll help me prepare meals and we can all spend time – even if it’s for a quick bite on a lunch break – enjoying them together.”
