Back to school season is in full swing for most of us now or it will be this coming week! Since this is Kevin’s first year teaching, we are getting into a new routine and loving it. You hear that word a lot this time of year; routine, routine, routine. It is a great buzz word that really helps you get back into the swing of things. I am a big morning person, so I like to make sure I set the tone for our household really well in the mornings. I highly believe that you can wake up on the “wrong” side of the bed, but with a good routine, you make sure to kick off your day in the best way. Here are 3 Tips for a Great Back To School Morning Routine:
Prepare the night before
My number one tip for a great morning routine is to prepare the night before. Before you go to bed, look at your calendar and see what you have going on the next day. I also like to plan my day and set goals to accomplish. I also do various tasks like make sure the house is picked up, set out everything the kids need, pick out the kids clothes, and even order groceries online. If you haven’t started ordering your groceries online yet, let me be the first to tell you how awesome it is. With Walmart, you can just go online, fill our cart, pay and then go pick them up at the store. They bring all of your groceries to your car for you and its such a breeze. I can’t tell you how much time this saves!!
Set The Tone
Like I mentioned in the beginning, you can set the tone for your family’s whole day, so make sure it is a good one. We love music and dance parties in our house, so we like a good morning playlist to start our day off on a fun note. Your family might prefer something a little quieter like a morning read or television show. The point is, do something fun and positive that your family loves.
Eat a good meal
Breakfast is so important to you and your child’s day. Make sure to have a great breakfast planned in the morning. Jimmy Dean® Frozen Breakfast Sandwiches are a great option in this busy season. I love the Jimmy Dean® Southern Style Chicken Biscuit and Jimmy Dean® Snack Size Sausage Biscuit the best. They take the pressure off of meal prep and save you time, because they are so convenient to prepare. Start your morning off on the right sandwich; a warm biscuit, croissant or muffin packed full of delicious meat and high-quality ingredients.
As a busy parent of two, I know the back-to-school season can be stressful and a solid routine is key. I hope these tips really help you set a great back to school morning routine for your house. If you add anything to your day, I highly suggest adding the Walmart online grocery pick-up. It is so convenient for this hectic back to school season.
