It's Almost Time For Back To School (Let's Get Back On Track)


    Hey Moms, Can you believe it is almost time to send our kiddos back to school? I can't believe how fast this summer has come and gone. I can truly say I enjoyed the time home with my girls. We are usually at summer camp and work all summer. So, I am grateful that I was not employed and my girls HAD an option of staying home or going. I did not force them to go to camp. 

     I wanted to help any moms out there that are having a hard time with transitioning back to a schedule with their kiddos. I have been having a hard time with sleep schedules. We are all messed up lol. We are going to bed around 4am and waking up in the wee hours in the afternoon, unless we have prior engagements. (Don't judge me) I can't have us like this weeks before school starts. We will be tired come the first day of school. 

    Since school starts in the beginning of August, I am going to start placing the whole family on schedule. Now, I know going to sleep early will be hard. So what I plan on doing is first thing in the morning, EVERYONE is going to wake up. 8am will be the time and 8:15am will be the latest. I will do this everyday for the rest of summer so that we can all get our bodies and minds adjusted. 

     This is also the time where I go over expectations and just refreshing their memories. This is is the first year where I did not have them do any summer work, read, or anything educational. I know some of you might say "wow and you are a teacher?" Yes, so lol... I believe kids need to be kids. My girls schooling was crazy since March 2020. My girls deserve ALL the fun and no responsibilities at least for one summer. I would periodically ask them to spell something as a game but that's about it. 

    The next couple of days will consist of back to school shopping, fun, more back to school shopping and just enjoying each other before the craziness during the school and work week starts back. The next couple of posts will be all about back to school. Hope you all stick around

    What are some ways you are getting your kiddos back into the groove of things before school starts back?
