The school supplies are purchased, the new clothes are hanging in the closet and lunch boxes are ready to be packed. The kids are excited about this new experience despite my fears. I think I am more nervous than they are. I just hope I don't cry on the first day of school!
I thought I had better head out to blog land and see what other mom's do to make the busy schedules easier. I have been wowed by many moms out there. One great idea is a Lunch Box, not the Hello Kitty or Superman kind. A lunch prep box for moms. Put all the items needed for making lunches in one box and you same tons of time. Not to mention kids will know it is hands off!
I know you all love Just a Girl and her amazing organization skills. She has been working on her Mud Room all summer and it is a stunner. I was planning on giving my mud room a sprucing up this week, but ended up getting a really nasty cold instead. But, I do have big plans, and I will show them off when I get a chance to do them.
Who can forget Tip Junkie and all her wonderful ideas for all us crazy moms. She had a bunch of really great creative lunch ideas. Some of them I would never attempt, but others looked fun. We'll see what the new year brings.
We shall see what the first day brings. Do you have any great ideas for me? First day of school traditions, organization ideas, scheduling mantras, etc. Let me know!
