If there is one thing I have learnt both from the Army and from being a mother of three is to plan ahead! I am always trying to stay one step ahead in order to keep things running as smooth as possible otherwise I turn in to a stressed out mess! With Little Miss 4 now going to kindy it has required a little bit more planning on my part to keep things as organised as they were last year with just Master 7 going to school. Before it really didn’t matter what she wore, most of the time she got around dressed as Snow White that was easy, but now she has to dress properly and quickly. I had a spot for Master 7s school uniform to go, but now I needed two spots so I have come up with a solution.
Each night I put their clothes in the little baskets on the bench in the laundry all ready for the next day. In the morning after breakfast when it’s time to get dressed I take them their baskets. I don’t even have to speak they just know it’s time to get dressed! Oh and it gets better…….
Wait for it…. once dressed for the day the kids put their PJs in the baskets and return their baskets to the laundry (no more PJs laying around the lounge room). So when it comes time to get ready for bed their PJs are sitting there ready for them, and the laundry is on the way to the bathroom for wees and teeth! Who says you can’t train kids, who says two little white baskets can’t give you endless pleasure, best $3 I ever spent!
