About 99 percent of parenthood involves a lot of guesswork and the hope that we aren't messing our kids up too badly. That final percent is when we have those moments of pure genius when the world finally makes sense and we know we got something right, like when you have a breakthrough in teaching your teenage son how important deodorant is or your toddler daughter finally eats something besides peanut butter sandwiches for lunch.
Here are a few more of those brilliant parenting moments crystallized here so that parents everywhere can feel like geniuses more often.
The preschool week outfit selection
Save yourself those minutes of the day you'd normally spend telling your kids to hurry up before they're all late for school and instead, spend them sipping a refreshing glass of lemonade or
taking a five-minute breathing break on the back porch.
Keep things interesting on your next car trip with this crazy smorgasbord of snacks sure to satisfy even the pickiest child. Another option for bigger kids: fill the compartments with small game pieces or folded word or sudoku puzzles.

The crib desk
Parental repurposing at its finest. Nostalgia and utility all rolled into one.
Hope for the best but prepare for the worst. Maybe also try this as a keychain on your child's backpack or looped on a belt loop (in case your child isn't crazy about bracelets or has a habit of pulling it off).
The road trip clips
Could it really be possible? A road trip with no yelling?
The new and improved baby playpen
You know whoever once said, "Necessity is the mother of invention," must have been a parent.
The precision aiming target
Mothers of boys everywhere will know immediately what this is for and why it is a much better idea than floating Cheerios. (Here's a hint: floating objects tend to drift.)
The golden rules of online safety
My daughter is calling me all kinds of names this morning (in her head, of course)...bc I made her post this on her...
