This is the first week of Summer Break in our house and you know what that means? The kids want to celebrate by staying up late and sleeping in! Nope, not happening, okay for the first week but then more living like nomads.
Don’t get me wrong, bedtime during the week is later than during the school year, and I won’t be getting them up at the crack of dawn. This year, I’ve got some Secrets to Managing Summer Mornings with Kids that will keep everyone happy!
Secret #1: Wake Up with Fun
During the school year we are usually hurried to get ready and get out the door. That means kids are woken up with dreaded buzzing or a parent in their face.
Summertime is fun time and time to wake up with fun! Breakfast in bed, singing a silly song, dressing in a wig, and tickling your kiddo are all fun ideas. It’s even more fun if your child is a teenager!
Secret #2 Keep a Schedule
I know, I know, school’s out and for some, schedules are pretty much out the window. But, if you keep a schedule for summer, it gives the kids something to look forward to. Having something to look forward to can help keep the whining and boredom at bay.
If you are able to be at home with your kids in the summer, plan trips to the park, picnic lunches, afternoons at the library and other things in town that are free and easy to plan.
Not able to be home during the day? Take advantage of the evenings with a neighborhood walk, bike ride, or take your dessert to the park after dinner.
Secret #3: Morning Me Time
I work from home with the twins all year round, but having the older two home during the summer? Not gonna lie that it can get overwhelming. Starting the day with some Morning Me Time helps me get things going on a quiet and positive note.
I usually catch up on whatever book has grabbed my attention (right now it’s New Prairie Kitchen filled with recipes for all my Farmers Market Finds) while sipping on some McCafé from my favorite Inside Out Mug!
As much as I love Disgust, she is my favorite emotion, she doesn’t describe the feeling of a little Me Time in the morning! I was shopping at Walmart recently and they were sampling McCafé, on a day when coffee was on my shopping list. Do you know what happened?
I ended up tossing some McCafé Premium Roast in the cart to bring home. I’m glad I did because the smooth bold flavor is wonderful, and the perfect pick me up to my morning needs!
Made with 100% Arabica Beans (i.e. Premium quality coffee) and harvested from the rich soils and mountainous regions of the foremost coffee-growing areas of the world, McCafé is just what Morning Me Time needs to go from disgust to joy!
McCafé is now available at Walmart with 8 flavors to choose from (talk about lots of options!) and both Premium bags, and coffee pods are available! Giving flexible options on how to brew your coffee, McCafé is an affordable way to fill your cup and start those Summer mornings on a great note.
