In preparation for my daughter going back to school, I am trying to make the transition as smooth as possible. Here are the ways that we are preparing for back to school:
- Going to bed on time and getting up early. To be honest, this one will be hardest on me. I love to sleep, especially at 32 weeks pregnant. Getting back into proper bedtime routines and getting up at regular times will help smooth the transition so that we are used to the routine before it hits again.
- Meal prep. I plan to make some muffins and easy meals to have in the freezer for when the frenzy starts. Having lunch kit items ready to go and planning some easy meal items will help us all feel prepared.
- Get the entryway ready. We have a tiny entrance to our home and it always looks a little different depending on the season. I want to get the entryway organized so that it is easy for us to find the things that we need as we head to school in the morning.
- Put together the backpack and school supplies. I need to label all of my daughter's school supplies and get it all packed up in her backpack. We are doing our shopping this week, so I hope that I can still get everything I need!
What do you do to prepare for back to school? I would love to hear your ideas!
