Our Morning Mantra

One parent uses the night before to simplify her morning routine.

"To make sure my kids get to school on time, we get everything ready the night before. Lunch is made, and book bags are packed and put in the car. As a final check, there's a big sign on the inside of the front door: 'Do you have lunch/homework/glasses/library book/coat?' I can hear them say it as they walk out the door each morning."

-Ester Wetherill, Rogers, Arkansas
