If you are waiting for a phone call, it can be very frustrating and a test of your patience. Here are some tips to make that phone ring right away:

4. Lie on the couch with the baby who was prematurely awakened from her nap. Decide that a few minutes to rest your own eyes is a great idea. I think Mom-naptimes are the best generators of phone calls. I usually get an average of one for every 15 minutes of dozing.
Unfortunately, though the phone may ring, it may not be the person you wanted to call. Try again the next day.
Or try sitting on the toilet. Works for me EVERY time!
Run that one little short errand you absolutely, knowing you'll be back in less than half an hour.
