I love the first days of school. They are filled with new clothes, new backpack, brand new sharpened pencils and an exciting anticipation of what waits ahead.
As a parent, you still get to share that same excitement with your child, with your plans to conquer the world, ALL in a year's time. However, as the homework starts to roll in, the sports schedules get divided and the parent meetings begin, I start to feel a little unorganized.
So, with this in mind, I asked, Johanna, my colleague, to help gather some ideas to minimize the daily clutter. By no means, is this a "fix all solution" to scheduling mishaps, but it might make it more fun in the pursuit of things. Who can misplace a funny looking parrot pencil? Or forget an anniversary with a birthday calendar? My favorite is to put everything that goes to school the next day, in a basket that is always by the door. Take a look around and see if anything can help you, make your first days of school easier.
Either way, enjoy the moment.
