I hate school mornings!!!

I wish I didn't, but I just hate school mornings.  I have tried and tried to find a good balance and organization to get out the door at a good time.  Somehow it ALWAYS turns into a rushed, crazed, yelling mess to get out the door and get the girls to school at the last minute to not be tardy....again.

We have tried getting absolutely everything in order before bed, clothes picked out, lunches made, shoes by door, backpacks packed.  This takes a lot of time out of the mornings...and they are still late!  I cannot figure out the perfect solution, just last quarter, we had 9 tardies.  9!!!! 

Most mornings are pretty nice until the last 5 minutes and the world explodes because homework is not in the backpack, shoes are lost and where is that jacket?  Which Makayla went to school without today :P

If anyone has good solutions, please share!  Don't be offended if I say we have already tried that it and it didn't work, I'm asking because I feel like we have done it all.  I just want a peaceful trip out the door!

  1. We have had our share of mornings like that. It sounds as if you have tried everything you can think of :) wishing you luck. Maybe as they get older the mornings will get better :)
