There are 24 days until school starts!
Not that anyone is counting right?
If I've said it once, I'll say it again, "Where has the summer gone?"
In 24 days, a new transition will start for all us parents, and especially us mothers. Not to mention our children, too. They will shift grades, start kindergarten, or enter preschool for the first time. (All of which is about to happen here in our household.)
If you have more than once child heading off to school, then you know there is a little bit of prep work that needs to be done. For you and your children.
So this month, (August) we're going to focus on Back To School Basics.
I don't know about you, but when I think about back to school basics the first thing that comes to mind is shopping. Pencils, notebooks, folders, binders, backpacks, socks, underwear, pants, shirts, sneakers, and the list goes on.....
Depending on where your child is headed, from preschool to college, preparing to send your child to school can become a stressful time. A "notebook" doesn't carry the same meaning to a five-year-old as it does a twenty-year-old.
Then there is you, yes you, you may not be going back to school, but there is still homework involved.
Stick with me as we address each level of school preparation this month. Not only will you be prepared, but you'll be stress free on that first day of school.
