Happy Mom Tip #2

Happy Mom Tip #2
Steps To A Happy Car
By Rivka Caroline

1) Keep a pack of babywipes within arms reach.

2) Keep old plastic bags in the passenger side door and use as garbage bags

3) Discipline yourself to do a clean out as you fill gas.

4) Teach yourself and your passengers of all ages to never leave the car empty handed (unless they are still in diapers).

5) Do a thorough cleaning every Sunday.

6) Keep a staple of almonds or granola bars in the glove compartment for emergency munchies.

7) If you're a parent, keep a few diapers and a change of outfit in a hidden spot.

8) Keep a pen and paper handy in the glove compartment in the unlikely case of a fender bender when your fingers will be shaking too hard to fiddle with your blackberry.

9) Most importantly, realize that you have the potential to be a hero in your child's/ grandchild's/ niece's/nephew's eyes if you take them for a whiz through a drive-through car wash. A small price to pay for instantly becoming someone's favorite person of the week!

You forgot, change the oil regularly and buy good insurance so you don't have to spend unnecessary money after the fact! Thanks for the helpful reminders, though - car cleanliness is such a challenge :).
