Back to school is such a hectic time!
It is a new beginning for children with new classmates, classes, teachers and for some new schools. We get our kids ready for school we wear ourselves out trying to make the process smooth for them.
Parents should have a back school break? We should breath a little better after a fun kid filled summer break and after the back to school rush.
We always make sure our kids have everything. Let’s share some ideas on “Time For Mommy” since school is back in.
Here are a few ideas below.
Kids Have Homework Time Every Night. Moms should consider some sort of reading, or self-enrichment time each day.
Our kids have great school and after school snacks, we like to eat too. Invest in some good yet healthy snacks for yourself!!
Sometimes we do want that candy or other junk food but it’s ok to indulge every now and then.
Our kids get new school clothes.
Buy yourself a new or even two outfits.
We buy our kids tons of new school supplies.
Do you need new office supplies or something small for the kitchen, bathroom etc.? If so buy yourself those supplies / things?
We book play dates and outing for our little ones
Book yourself a few play dates or get together with your friends.
Our children are now meeting new friends and building relationships at the beginning of the school year. Moms we should take notes and do the same thing, meet a few new moms at your child’s school or do some business networking.
Now is the time for our older children to talk on the phone about school, homework etc. As moms we rarely get to catch up with friends on the phone. Take some time to make a few phone calls to your friends. We too like to share good news, vent, laugh and just talk.
