    I have 10 yo twins (boy and girl) and I made a toiletry kit for each of them. Dollar tree was great for this project. I was tired of all the mess between the two of them. SO far mornings are great. Having a child with ADHD is tiresome and this has cut down on the arguments and has allowed me to keep my sanity.

    We start our back to school routine a week early so that everyone is well adjusted before the big day.

    My son is old enough to take care of himself. But I do iron his clothes for the week Sunday evening so that he just grab them from the closet to wear.

    I love back to school time. It always makes me so happy to be able to shop for school supplies and pack backpacks. We make back to school shopping easy by having the list from the school ahead of time. That way at least the essentials are brought even if certain teachers request something different.

    Have extras just in case of an emergency. Make sure to have everything ready to go ASAP, that way there's no rushing around at the last minute.

    Plan, plan, plan! Use a calendar that all can see to record appointments, sports, projects, etc.
