Back to school time is here and if you have kids, your life is probably chaotic. My mornings can be crazy, especially with 6 kids going in all different directions. Because my page is all about simplifying life, I wanted to share some tips to help make mornings a little bit easier and helping you survive busy School day mornings.
This year I have 1 child in Middle School, 3 in Elementary school and one taking preschool classes which means my schedules are all over the place. My oldest has to be on the bus at 7:15 am, my other three have to be at the bus stop at 8:25am, and my 4 year old has various classes throughout the week that begin at 9:30.
Tips for Surviving Busy School day Mornings
1.Get organized the night before: I get it nighttime can be chaotic for many, but making sure you’re not running around the next morning filling stuff out or making lunches is big for making mornings a little less chaotic.
3. Have a morning station: I have a little desk area with hair bands, brushes, pencils, notepads etc.. My daughters will come down stairs while I’m getting stuff done and I can easily do their hair, write notes ,etc. Any last minute stuff is on hand in case you need to get it done. Because, we all know even if you try to get it done at night, chances are one of your children will remember something you have to do that morning.
4. Have a Morning To do List: This one can be a simple as a notepad with numbers to an actual board. Make sure you write down the night before anything important the kids need to do, remember or take. Seeing this board will give you the ability to make sure you don’t forget anything important, like a special project that is drying or a Science Experiment in the freezer.
5. Don’t just give your kids breakfast, make sure you’re covered as well.
So I’m horrible about breakfast. I’ll have my morning coffee, but breakfast always become secondary. My kids are covered, but because I’m running around, sitting down for breakfast is close to impossible.
