Nothing beats the lazy days of summer..
Slow mornings, limited schedules, snacks all day, and sunny late night dinners. Annddd then good ol’ September 1st rolls around and we all enter PANIC MODE!! September can be one of the most hectic times of year with adjusting to new schedules, school drop-off and pick-up, before and after school programs, you know the drill..
How did everyone’s first week back-to-school go!? Hopefully your little ones have settled in well and you’ve had a chance to come up for air in all the CHAOS!! I know for us, this is our first time getting a feel for what the years of school to come with Emma will be like now that she’s in preschool and it can be stressful!
‘Twas the night before school, you think you have all your items covered as you do your final check through the to-do list. I got the kid’s haircut, purchased all their supplies, have their backpacks and new outfits laid out, oh can’t forget to charge the camera to take a photo for Grandma and Grandpa and then it comes to you.. how cute would it be to have them holding a little first day of school sign!!
This sweet curly haired, blue eyed girl that made me a mama is starting preschool this September (cue the ugly cry)!! I am so excited for her to start this next chapter in her life, but part of me isn’t ready to share her with anyone else. She is bright and beautiful, bold and brave, strong and kind. She is intelligent beyond her years, up for any challenge and loves with her whole heart. I can’t wait to see what the future holds for her <3
Our 3 year old daughter has recently become interested in helping with the daily chores of keeping up our home. Folding laundry, feeding the pups, organizing our recycling, watering the plants, are just a few things she’s eager to help us out with. So it got me thinking.. preschool is starting up this September (cue the ugly cry) and what a great time this would be to start a little more of a structured routine for her each day in preparation of preschool.
