Why Tuesday? See, I go to BSF on Monday nights and when I get home it's late and I'm usually tired. Typically, I come home, go straight upstairs and get in bed. Because of this I don't get anything ready for the next day. Every other evening I prepare for the next day...I pick out clothes for me and the kids, I make sure Jamison's book bag is packed, I check to see if she's buying or packing and if she's packing I pack her lunch, I put shoes in a place where I can grab them easily the next day, and I make sure coats and hats/gloves are where they are supposed to be. But, I don't do that on Mondays and that makes Tuesday mornings more difficult and a little stressful.
Please excuse the bad picture.
The one thing that does help me from not completely losing it is my kids' bin. This has been a lifesaver...I've actually had this "container" since Jamison was a baby. I keep almost everything I need in here to get the kids ready in the morning (and in the evening). I keep lotion, hand sanitizer, pull ups (because Caleb still wears one at night), hair items for Jamison (I showed you how I organize her hair pieces here), vapor cream (for those ongoing colds), wipes, and extra underwear. It just really helps me to have all of these things in one place so that I'm not running all around the house. This is something that really works for us. Do you have a kids' station?
** While coming up with this post I did realize that I need to double up on my Sunday prep and prep as much as I can for Tuesday...I'll keep you posted on that.
