Some people are already “back to school” but for others like me, this lovely time of year is just around the corner. It can definitely be overwhelming, especially with 5 kids all entering different grades! Having learned the hard way, let me tell you, here are a few tricks for the stressed-out moms out there that have made the whole process much easier for me!
Tips to Get Organized for Back to School
One thing that has really helped me stay calm in September has been making doctors’ appointments early! August appointments are easier to schedule. That way, you’re not fighting for time slots after school has started in September, with the school nurse reminding you that your child’s health form has expired (anyone? Anyone?) Another thing that has helped me has been putting all of the important dates (half-days, vacations, conferences, etc.) in my calendar or in my phone as soon as possible. This really helps avoid scheduling conflicts later on, even though I still have them because sometimes I forget to write these down! Yes, I do!
