Heading back to school

Thanks to Wm Rowe

Getting your kids ready o go back to school does not have to be a hassle. All moms have been there. You have had them home for 3 weeks of fun, crafts, baking and family visits. Now it is time to go to bed at a decent hour, wake up early and head out the door. If your kids are anything like mine getting back into a regular routine can be a nightmare. No one wants to go to bed, or wake up early and certainly no one wants to get dressed and onto the bus. With a few simple tricks though, the first day back to school can go smoothly and you can get back to your daily routine as well. First, I start easing them back into having a bedtime. I slowly start getting them into bed a little earlier each day. I also start waking them up a little earlier each day. This takes away some of the shellshock of an 8:00pm bedtime and a 6:00am wakeup. The night before I let them help pack their lunch, pick out their school clothes and pack their backpacks. This reminds them that yes, there is school tomorrow and no, you are not missing it. With everything all ready it makes getting out in the morning easier. All we have to do is grab their bags, set the home security alarm from http://www.besthomesecurity.com and away we go!
