This blog will be written by a stay at home mom/student. I am trying to enjoy every minute of life I get and raise my children to be happy with what we have been given. Anything written here will be by me, for my well being and piece of mind. I want to open other peoples eyes, and let them see that we can make it on less.

Help for growing families.


Well my tip is for getting kids out the door in the mornings. I have one that goes to school and he is so not a morning person.(takes after his daddy) I pack his lunch the night before so all I have to do is stick it in his lunch bag. I also freeze a little juice in a water bottle and add to it in the morning so he will have a cold drink at lunch. When he gets off the bus and takes his shoes off I insist that they are left near the door. We use to have a shoe box but for some crazy reason I put it in my closet and that's where is still remains. Coats and backpacks are also left near the door so everything is easy to get to and find. We do baths at night so all he has to do is get dressed, brush teeth, and sometimes wet down hair. I also try to always have the coffee maker ready to go so all I have to do is turn it on. It all works out so much better, and less stress. Next year when I have two going we will probable start laying clothes our the night before or buying some of those nifty closet organizer daily things. Hope this helps someone.

Thanks for the awesome tips, I am about to take a child in my home to hopefully adopt, and I as of now do not and never have had a child, so with that said, its gonna be hard getting him up and ready for school, so your tips might just be a life saver here!
