I absolutely love my Mom's Family Wall Calendar. I buy one every year, and rely on it to keep everyone's schedules organized. We rarely miss an appointment or meeting when we use the wall calendar religiously. With our busy schedules, I needed something portable that accomplished the same job. I used to be able to track all of that on my palm pilot, but the handheld, smartphone versions of those programs are just too cumbersome to use. Based on reviews, descriptions, and images of previous Mom's Family Desk Calendars, I was expecting a smaller version of the wall calendar, or at least something with plenty of room and spaces for organizing multiple schedules. And of course, I enjoy Sandra Boynton's cartoons.
Sadly, that's not what the 2013 version provides. One entire page for the week is taken up by a cartoon, and the other is split into the week with one small rectangle for Mom's schedule, and one small rectangle for everyone else. I just couldn't wait for this calendar, and now I'm sad I ever spent money on this - I got better use and more space from my old, cheap, academic calendar bought on clearance at a local department store. This is not your typical Mom's Family Calendar with a column devoted to each family member, or even enough space to record appointments and times. I certainly won't be buying future versions unless it more closely resembles the wall version.
