Need some help juggling?

Overwhelmed with all those mundane tasks that make a working mom's to-do list read like a grocery list? I just happened upon an article in USA weekend magazine about a new trend in concierge services for working parents. Apparently, malls are offering concierge services that will pick out birthday gifts for you kids' friends. Kiddie Concierge in Alexandria, Va. will arrange play dates, research the best ballet classes and pick up your child from day care for about $20 an hour. Some employers even are footing the bill for concierge services. I'm planning to hunt for these services in South Florida. In the meantime, I'm off to Toys R Us to buy yet another gift for my son to take to a kids' birthday. And yes, I have discovered buying in bulk.
