Yesterday when we did our photo shoot, it was THE most wonderful, perfect day.  Blue sky, puffy clouds, mid-70's, and no humidity (which is rare in summertime in the NE).  It was a beautiful day!


Mama Said Monday
School Clothes Organized

Coupons.com contacted me to see what mom "hacks" I use to get our back to school running smooth!  So since I'm always thinking of how I can make my mornings easier I offered my "hack".  Last year my nuggets have been dressing themselves (so wonderfully happy for me!  Woot, woot!), and this year, I'm taking it one step further....  Each week I plan to get their outfits together for the week in these great containers.  Every day is a different color and since they can't read I'm able to tell them to get dressed with the color of the word.  It's easy for me to remember because they go in order of the rainbow!  Each container includes everything they need to dress themselves.  What is in the little lunch box you say?  Well, a special treat will await them after school on Friday IF they have dressed themselves without complaining and me not telling them 15 times to... "get dressed!!!".  :)

Happy Monday friends, thanks for reading!  I hope you had a beautiful weekend.
