Back-to-School Bliss: A Handy Checklist Making Parenting Easier!
As the summer holidays come to an end, it's time to start thinking about getting ready for back to school. As a mother of two, school-aged kids, I'm excited!
To help make the transition smoother, we've put together a checklist of tips and tricks from our community of MIMI parents. So let's make life easier for everyone this back-to-school season.
Label It...With A Pen!
Do yourself a favour. Go to Office Works and buy a $2 Sharpie Rub-a-Dub Laundry Marker to label your kids' things. We've all been there, midnight before school starts, tediously ironing teeny-tiny name labels onto undies that have probably had their day! Keep it simple, and write it! The only person who reads the label is the teacher, and after re-homing yet another blue hat, they don't care if the label has a cute squirrel on it.
Organising things into boxes and putting a label on them is my jam!
Try organising kids' uniforms on a Sunday night to make the mornings run smoother.
Use five small boxes or a five-drawer unit. Label each one Monday through Friday. Then, sort the various uniforms with undies and socks into their scheduled day of the week. The result is less stress in the mornings, as everything is in one place..
Hair Care Station
Encourage kids to care for their hair by creating a station where they can keep all their products together. K-mart has these cute mini lockers which perfectly fit your MIMI Detangling spray, brush, hair ties and ribbons. Store alongside a mirror at a height they can reach. One less job for you in the mornings. YES!
Even better, MIMI has put together a back-to-school haircare kit with everything you need to tame that mane, only $39.00. Get those beachy locks, school ready. Tear, tantrum, stress free! I'll take two!
