Back to Basics


For some Moms, the kids have been back in school for about 2 weeks and others this may be week 1 for you. I don’t know about you, but I feel like I struggled more with getting acclimated to the schedule than my child. Over the summer things were a little bit more relaxed because there wasn’t any real pressure. The first day of school I was like a zombie because I had stayed up late trying to get everything together. With that being said here are a few tips to help you get back on track for the school year:

  1. Making a plan (schedule) will go a long way throughout the school year. Of course things will interfere with it, but it sure helps when adding and subtracting things from daily/weekly activities.
  2. Prepare the night before. Do as much as possible before going to bed, that way you have a little bit more time in the morning. This may allow you to be able to eat breakfast with your child/children.
  3. Limit screen time (T.V., Ipads, Ipods, Kindles) offer books to get your child back into reading. This will be a great time for you to spend quality time right before bed.
  4. Pull out the crock pot and make dinner options easier. Make sure to get an automatic crock pot so, you can throw and go.

I hope these few little tips help you and your family get Back to the Basics. I would love to hear your tips on getting back into the groove of the school year! Leave your comment below!
