Getting pants on a wiggly baby
Josh demonstrates proper kid-wrangling:
I don't know if this qualifies as a hack, as I just thought it was how everyone did it, but my wife saw me doing this the other day and suggested I send it in. When your toddler/infant is thrashing around and you want to put pants on 'em, thread your hands through the legs of the pants and then approach your kid wearing the pants on your wrists like mufflers. Then grab a leg (kid leg, not pant leg) with each hand. It takes a little wriggle, but once you get one leg out through the pants, you don't have to struggle to get the other one threaded.
Another get-'em-dressed trick: strap them into the stroller first.
ps. If you find yourself thinking, "This can't qualify as a hack. I'm sure everyone already knows this/it's too simple," send it in. You would be surprised how valuable the minor tweak can be. The "why didn't I think of that?" hacks are almost always the most useful.
