It's back to school for us tomorrow. Where did the summer break go? Seriously! I feel like it had just started but here we are - must get our stuff together to make sure we're ready including making sure we actually wake up on time for the first day of school. LOL!
I tried to get everything back in order and ready for back to school including taking out nap time so the kids would sleep early and get up early. I've checked their back packs, made a meal plan as they will be bringing lunch to school and made myself a mini essentials kit as well to keep in my bag as I drive around from one school to another and do errands. Check out the quick tutorial so you can create a mini essentials kit for yourself or to give out to other moms.
Back to school means many things like the introduction of headaches and fevers but it came sooner for us. I thought we can really enjoy the whole summer break down to the last week but instead we got sick. Big sis' and I got a fever.
I always have the medicine cabinet stocked with what we need but I realized that I also need to have them around when I'm out especially now that it's back to school, like when I'm having cramps and we're already out for school drop offs. So I created a mini essentials kit to keep in my bag so we have access to medicine and other essentials when we're in the car.
Having a mini essentials kit on hand is not only helpful when we're out on weekdays but also on weekends when we go out of town for a quick getaway.
