Make School Mornings a Breeze

In the mornings, when getting your kids off to school, it can be hectic! I do some simple things to make it easier and more efficient, and I thought maybe the tips I use would help others.

  1. The night before, help your child pick out an outfit. Watch the weather report to make sure the choice is appropriate!
  2. Lay your breakfast dishes out on the table and plan breakfast. I always keep quick options like Carnation Instant Breakfast on hand just in case my son doesn't really want to eat or we are pressed on time.
  3. Make sure everything needed for school the next day is in or by the backpacks - homework, permission slips, medical forms, that science project that is due, It's much easier if you don't have to run around in the morning looking for it.
  4. Have lunch packed and ready or lunch money tucked in a little change bag. You don't want your kid getting to school and not having lunch!>

These 4 things make mornings run much smoother. If your child or children oversleep, you can mix up instant breakfasts while they get dressed (or you can do it after you HELP them get dressed, depending on age). They can drink it down, grab their gear, and go! On days everything is running on time, you can make a more substantial breakfast and your kids will have more time to eat and catch up with you!

Well said Shannon.

Although my kids are grown with kids of their own, doing everything the night before gave me a much smoother start each new morning way back when.

Precious photo too. Thanks for sharing.
