I love seeing all of the kid’s back to school pictures all over social media. Everyone is so bight-eyed and excited rocking their new school clothes. Cami started Pre-K two weeks ago and just like all the other parents, I was trying to get her to stand still for one good picture to post with anticipation of doing a side-by-side at the end of the year. These first two weeks have allowed us to fully get out of the summer haze and into a good school routine. With Kindergarten on the horizon I am making sure that we start getting in a rhythm now to create good habits for a successful year. Here are 3 ways we are making sure Cami starts off strong for the new school year that have helped her first few weeks go smoothly.
I am so grateful to have a husband that is super hands-on with our kids and our household! Cameron and I have a pretty good system of splitting the workload 50/50. While he engages in tickle fights with Cami and Hendrix, I wash and fold laundry. While I build peg towers with the kids, Cameron washes dishes. That being said, even in a home where both parents take an active role with the kids and the chores, there is just something about mamas that make us the ultimate “command center” for the goings on of the household. As I prepare both kids to get back into the swing of things for the new school year, I am relying on a few hacks I have learned that make #momlife so much easier.
