Getting ready for school

Getting ready for school

Make a plan now to make the most of your time.

Now is the time when children will be going back to school. As a mother, this can be a combination of a good thing and a bad thing. It is often bittersweet, but it is inevitable. School is a good thing for children, even though most kids prefer to be on summer vacation.As a mother, sending the kids back to school is always something that is hard for me. Because I work from home, it is good to have that time during the day where no one is bothering me. On the other hand though, we are back to a tight schedule and I actually miss my kids while they are gone.

With school in session, I always feel like I have to be more organized. For me this is a good thing though because I tend to get so much more accomplished each day. I have to wake the kids up at a certain time and have them out the door by a certain time. I like to make sure that I get my shower in before all of this because that way when they leave, I am ready to begin doing all of the things I need to do. There is a lot to squeeze into the hours in which they are gone, and I like to start right away.

When the kids get home from school, I like to be done with all of my work and errands. This leaves more time for me to focus on them, their homework, dinner and everything else the evenings hold.
