Weekday mornings are a rush with getting myself and the kids ready and out the door in time for a relaxing walk to school. But since working on this project with my son August, it's much smoother. Thought I'd share the idea in case you too were looking to simplify your morning routine.
I asked August to draw a picture of himself ready for school (note the orange backpack straps...and two swords). I then wrote out everything he needs to do before before declaring himself ready for the day.
Now that he's in school, he likes the responsibility of checking the poster to see if he's completed everything. And I like that I now only have myself and two children to worry about.
