So I totally meant to post this School Morning Routine Checklist months ago when the kids were heading back to school! BUT…better late than never, right? Shannon over at Painting Paris Pink has been working with Ella and Annie since the beginning. She has created the best free printables for our readers over the past few years and this Morning Routine Checklist is one of my favorites yet! There is one checklist for mom and one for kids to help make morning routines just a little bit more bearable.
For the life of me, since my kids started school, I’ve tried and tried to come up with a morning routine to make our mornings go more smooth. It just never seems to happen, like EVER. The laundry is always in baskets spilling over the tops onto our master bedroom floor and it takes me forever to find each kid underwear, socks and clothes. The girls are always complaining that one took all the hot water in the shower, mean while I’m just trying to get my son to bath, lol. I burn the toast every.single.day or the dog gets it, lunches most always end up being a shit load of snacks (whatever the little monsters will eat). AND…without fail I yell, from the moment their pretty little eyes open until they are out my car door at school.
I yell to get up, to hurry in the shower, to not air dry (seriously this is a thing), to brush their hair, to find shoes, to eat their burnt toast and to hurry up an buckle so I can drive!! It is always the same…RUSH…RUSH…RUSH. Why oh why can’t I ever get it right. I asked Shannon to create a Back To School Morning Checklist that would help make our mornings a little easier.
