Do you hear the sound of school buses rolling, backpacks zipping, and pencils sharpening? Back to school has FINALLY arrived in the QC! We’ve put together our list of what we will do now that the kids are back in school:
1. We will enjoy the peace and quiet and collect our thoughts. No more Mommy, Mommy, Mommy….. Breathe, summer is over. Although, we loved every minute…the quiet will be nice, really nice.
2. We will have more time for work. The summer is crazy for many of us part-time working moms. Always a juggling act.
3. We will get organized. Some of us thrive on routines and can’t for those to start. We also can’t wait to pick up that new planner!
4. We will get back to regular workout routine! Yes! We all know there is no regular workout routine in summer if one at all!! And, boy do we need it.
5. We will get those new workout clothes and running shoes that we have been so overdue on getting and not have to drag our kids around to get them.
6. We will get a few things for ourselves for fall. Who isn’t so over their summer wardrobe? Having a few minutes to shop alone will be heavenly.
7. We will take a moment and reflect and be thankful for all the chaos and fun that summer provided. It sure was great!
Some of our great partners have shared several awesome items to help us when we do get that time to ourselves. Now that kiddos are back in school, it’s your turn to get your back to school shopping for yourself too!!
