breakfastGetting everybody ready for school in the morning can be such a crazy and stressful time. Here are several hints to make it calmer, so hopefully it goes a little more orderly:

1. Before bedtime, make sure your children gather all their school papers and put them into their backpacks, so they won’t be looking for them in the morning.
2. Set the breakfast table before you go to bed. Put out dishes and dry cereal.
3. Make lunches over the weekend. Freeze sandwiches (without mayo or mustard, lettuce, etc.) and then just pull them out in the morning and finish off.
4. Get your older children to decide what they’re going to wear the next day—before they go to bed. For smaller kids, you can choose the outfits and lay them out at night.
