Morning routine life hacks for Mums.
As most mothers will understand, morning isn’t always the easiest time of the day when you have school age children, it could potentially be the most stressful in many cases! Well here are 5 little hacks that might make your mornings run with a little bit more ease.
1.Text yourself reminders for the morning! Is there something you need to remember for the morning that you absolutely can’t forget, like the kids gym gear or dinner money? Text yourself a reminder whilst in bed and don’t open it until the morning.
Preparation is key
2. Do as much as possible the night before. Get the kids to pack their bags the night before, make sure the packed lunches are made up the night before, and have all of the clothes laid out ready to go. This will save so much time and frantic running about in the morning. Organisation is key!
3. Make a morning playlist. Do your little ones struggle to get up and ready for school on a morning? Why not try making them a playlist of their favourite songs to listen to to help them along the way? That way they’ll be much more enthusiastic about starting the day.
Leave the best until last
4. Leave getting dressed until last. This is an absolute must, if you don’t already practice this tip then It’s time to start. This means you don’t have to worry about spilling breakfast down those uniforms, or toothpaste for that matter. This definitely minimises stress for parents.
Baby wipes by the door
5. Another top tip is to leave baby wipes right by the door. That way you can give the kids a quick once over before they leave, also great for muddy shoes. Saves a trip to the bathroom.
