You’re probably here because you have school aged kids. And getting through the morning rush is frantic and overwhelming sometimes. I hear ya, mama! I’m here to tell you though, that it doesn’t have to be hard! Here are 3 super simple ways to get through the morning rush and make it easier. That way, your child is off to school without stress (yay!) and in a great mood. Win-win.
Tips to make the morning rush easier
- Set an alarm! Give yourself plenty of time to make breakfast and get ready. That way you won’t have to rush. I set my alarm 1 hour before the bus comes. This gives my son plenty of time to eat breakfast, get dressed, go to the bathroom, brush his teeth, and get his shoes and back pack on. We make it out to the bus in time for a few minutes of conversation, too.
- Pack lunch boxes the night before – Pack those lunches the night before. Now it’s ready to go! Just throw in an ice pack and put it in your child’s back pack. This is a no-brainer if you ask me!
- Have shoes, backpack, and masks by the door. Why does it seem like a shoe goes missing when you need to run out the door? If you have a pair of shoes, their backpack, and a mask (hopefully this one doesn’t last forever) waiting by the door, then the morning will be a breeze!
I hope you find these 3 simple steps to making your morning rush way easier! Remember to just give yourself enough time. No one wants to send their child off to school or daycare in a mad dash, all frantic and upset. Using these 3 tips will allow your child easily separate from you happy and stress-free, and that’s what they deserve!
