Clean clothes, back packs, packed lunches, early bed times, homework, getting there on time, decent meals...lots of details that fall under my umbrella of responsibility. Whew, I'm exhausted.
So the two things that are making me not crazy...
1. I keep all the uniforms, hair stuff, socks, shoes, everything we need to get ready for school in a laundry basket.
School wear lives in the basket.
This way, I'm not running to the 4 corners of the house to round up school clothes or sending my kids looking (because who are we kidding they can never find anything). This deal was inspired by my always keeping our swim bag packed this summer.
It's really working for me.
2. Convenience foods. For so many years I avoided prepackaged snacks.
But for everything there is a season!
Now is my season to embrace some convenience foods. Feeding a family of six is a huge operation. These grab and go foods help me catch my breath and save my energy to prepare meals.
I'm relying on these things for lunches and afternoon snacks.
So what's making you not crazy? How's back to school? Are you surviving or thriving?
I hope thriving!
