- Make sure she picks out her outfit the night before
- Have her bags and/or lunch packed the night before
- Give her only one task at a time in the morning - she VERY easily gets distracted or forgets what she has to do next
- Keep the television off in the mornings
Another thing we struggle with is getting breakfast in her. Many times she ends up out the door with a half-eaten bowl of cereal left behind on the table. I was excited when the people over at YOP asked me to try out their drinkable yogurt. This is a great solution for busy mornings, and we tried it out with basketball camp this past week. All my kids found their favorite flavors, and I'm sure this will become part of our back-to-school morning routine.
