How to Create a Family Message Center to Help You Get Ready for Back to School
School is starting up soon and my youngest is going into Kindergarten. I won’t lie, I am already dreading getting two kids up and ready in the morning. My daughter does not like to get up and ready for the day, she likes to do things on her own schedule. I am trying to prepare now with a month to go to make sure back to school is not as stressful as I preparing for.
One of my biggest issues in the morning are making sure the kids eat a protein packed breakfast and finding everything they need for the day. Living in a condo, we don’t have a lot of space and I always have wanted a family message center. Creating one was a lot easier than I thought! Our hall closet had become a wasted space where things were just thrown in and never to return. After decluttering the closet, I had more than enough room in an originally un-thought of place in my home!
I created a space for the kids to have one central location to keep their backpacks, lunchboxes, reminders, and a calendar so they know what we are doing each day. We put our Family Message Center behind the door. The hooks are at a level where the kids can hang their own items up, helping them be more independent and responsible for their belongings!
Now that our mornings will be a lot more organized with everything in one place, I just had one more problem to solve: breakfast!
While I was shopping for our supplies for our Family Message Center at Walmart, I found these delicious looking LALA® Yogurt Smoothies!
Since we have such a hard time getting up, ready and out the door in the morning, LALA® Yogurt Smoothies seemed like the perfect on-the-go snack for our family to enjoy in the car as we drive to school. Plus, they’re made with real fruit and 5 grams of protein!
We’ve been pairing the LALA® Yogurt Smoothies with nuts to create a great on-the-go combo to fuel us up for a great day at school and on the go!
