I could see my colleague smile a little as I explained how my mornings have been going since sending my kids back to school. To be quite frank I am very happy getting to work early and leaving early but it is an on-going effort trying to get everyone ready for school, homework done and settled into bed on time. For my middle child I created Kindergarten Commandments since this will be her first time entering “big kid” school and so she will have to learn to speak up and be responsible for her things. This is not little kid babying time, but a time when she enters school and must follow tasks for homework, listening to teacher, learning and also for being ok with having fun and making friends.
As a working mom, I enjoyed my summer where I could go into work late but now we have to buckle down and get everyone organized or I will FAIL big time for Back to School. I’ve talked about our morning routines already in a previous post and while it may not be working, this thing called life is a work in progress. If there is one thing I need as a constant in my life it would be coffee. Not just any coffee but our friends at Seattle’s Best Coffee have offered us an amazing parent’s survival kit including a backpack, a planner, coffee, tumbler, mug and more with a $115 value. So I’m also giving one away to a lucky reader via an Instagram contest that ends on September 2, 2015.
Seattle’s Best Coffee is partnering with BuzzFeed and launching the “How Do You Back to School?” quiz and content series, at BuzzFeed.com/
As for me I am a snoozer:
