Back to school!
I’m wiggling-in-my-seat happy!
Not that I don’t love my kids, but there’s not much room for working from home when they are here.
And when I do sit down to get something accomplished, I feel terribly guilty for neglecting them.
So back to school gives me a few hours to work, and then the rest of my time for them.
Plus, they are still at the age where they love school and are missing their friends after a long summer.
I saw a photo on Facebook about some brilliant mom/dad who created a lunch station to help with the morning mayhem.
They put all the little snacks into snack bags,
perfectly portioned for their kids’ appetites,
and then set them all out so that the kids could choose what went into their lunches each day.
So I brought out all of the junky snacks,
and the healthy ones,
and set them out at kid-height in a cute little display.
All the girls have to do is select a couple of healthy and a junk – and then there’s still the bin in the fridge for yogurt, cheeses, and fruit – and they can pack their own lunches!
Everything they need is portion controlled, pre-packaged and cheaper than buying individual packages of everything.
I know what you’re thinking – “But Shelly, where did you get that adorable snack station from?”
Repurposed here since they weren’t using it in their playroom.
I love how cute this is!
Now I just have to shoo take them to their new classes!
Happy first day back to school girls!
Have a great one!
