I’m totally one of those moms who gets really, really nervous with all this back-to-school talk. As a full-time working mom, my time with Alea is already limited, but now it’ll be even more limited even on my days off. I’m lucky enough to have two days off during the week since I work 8 shifts every two weeks, but now for a couple hours on those two days, I’ll be sending Alea off to preschool. It just seems so surreal! Since I’ll be spending more time away from my little miss, I thought it would be smart to start planning a little after school routine for us complete with some delicious after school snacks!
Our After School Routine Plan:
001. Snack Time: Snacks are absolutely essential to our after school routine, so I’ve had to make it my mission to find some yummy ones for Alea. She’s partial to these Bagel Bites and I’m partial to these Delimex snacks. They’re so delicious and take only a couple minutes to prepare– which is especially important since half the time Alea’s already begging for a snack the second we get in the car after daycare!
002. Check Backpack: My goal for this back-to-school routine is to just build it into our routine to check Alea’s backpack and make sure that nothing gets missed. We’re a relatively busy family, but I don’t want to forget to sign and return things or forget to do something because then Alea gets hassled for it at school and that’s not fair to her!
003. Playtime: After a couple hours of learning and stimulation, it’s important to just have some fun. I love that Alea will be learning so much in the months to come and I’m sure she’ll even start teaching me a thing or two, but it’s so important for kids to have play time as well. They don’t get homework in preschool, do they?
And how about that silly pizza face snack? All you need is string cheese, a couple peas and two Bagel Bites. It’s kind of cute, isn’t it? Alea sure thought so! If you’re looking to get these yummy after school snacks, don’t forget to bring these coupons:
Can’t wait to get this school year started out on the right foot with this basic after school routine. We’ll see how it goes and what we’ll have to add to that after school routine. All in all my goal is to make it a time of togetherness with my sweet little girl because I know I’m going to miss her like crazy while she’s away!
