*contest now closed!!* Capri Sun $250 Visa Gift Card Giveaway!!

*This is a compensated review from BlogHer and Capri-Sun.*

Having 3 kids makes life a tad bit crazy. When my school-aged kids wake up in the morning, chaos ensues. Breakfast needs to be made, lunches made, the toddler's needs are screamed out at me and Hubby gets to shuttle everyone off in the right direction.

Luckily my oldest lives by her alarm clock, but my sluggish second child needs a bit more incentive. What helps keep our rountine in line is the menus for the day. Breakfast food set and ready, lunch prep made simple and easy. We look for brands we can trust at the grocery store. Brands that offer nutrition as well as convenient packaging are always tossed in the cart.

Long gone are the days where we have time to fill a thermos and toss that bulky thing into a lunch bag. My kids are Capri Sun drinkers. The pouch is the right amount of juice so satisfy their thirst, and the price for a box of 10 is unbeatable at any store! The pouches are perfect for their lunch pails and Capri Sun is a name our family can trust.

Capri Sun Sunrise is the new, wholesome morning drink for kids chock full of Vitamin C and calcium.
- A good source of calcium
- 100% Daily Value Vitamin C
- The pouch kids love

There are 3 new flavors of Capri Sun Sunrise, Berry Tangerine Morning, Tropical Morning, and Orange Wake Up. My 3 children loved the Orange Wake Up best, while I enjoyed the taste of Berry Tangerine Morning.

Morning routine is get the kids going by making sure they're out of bed. They are both quick wakers so as long as they're physically out of the bed, they're set. From there its all routine, food, dress, off to school.

Aaren said...

Our alarm clocks--Charis 23 months and Emily 11 months--without doubt wake us at 6:45am--usually in sync. We scoot downstairs and get Daddy's lunch ready for him to take to work, kiss him goodbye. Then get the girls cups/bottles and breakfasts in between catching bits and pieces of the news. My son (3 1/2) wanders down an hour or so later for some TV and then breakfast.

Sunnyvale said...

no kids at home, but morning tip is to never skip breakfast

Melissa said...

I have a hard time waking my youngest up when it's time for school. He never wants to get out of bed. When he finally does, they lay around and watch My Life as a Teenage Robot for a bit, then it's time to get ready.

Anonymous said...

We start with family play time then homemade breakfast together. After getting dressed for the day we pray together and give dad lots of hugs and kisses before he leaves for work. fun.mom.cheratgmaildotcom

Team Morris said...

I'm kidless...so the morning routine's not so bad. I wake up, walk the dog, get dressed and primped, make a smoothine and I'm out the door...all in under 30 minutes! I like my sleep...so I'm pretty streamlined. Thanks! :)

Nad said...

Our kids are early risers, so I don't have to drag them out of bed (sometimes I wish they were). We have breakfast, then they brush their teeth while I clean up the kitchen and pack their lunches. The pre-k boy dresses himself while the toddler girl plays in the living room. Then I get the girl dressed and her hair tidied then the boy is ready to be taken to school by daddy.

Danielle (Life with the Hewitt Family) said...

Our morning routine works for us because my husband is just getting home from work when we need to be getting up. He gets the little one ready while I am getting ready. They have a little time to hang out and play before getting ready. That way we get done at the same time and head out the door. We always have breakfast on the go, so a Capri Sunrise would be perfect!

denise said...

I set my alarm clock 30 minutes before I ACTUALLY get up, because it really does take me half an hour to fully wake up =D
Also, pack lunches and shower the night before.

lisa said...

I wake up around 7 a.m. after brushing my teeth i head to the computer, after about an hour i have a small breakfast and then i am back on the computer for another hour and then i head off to they gym. msmith572@yahoo.com

Betty N said...

My children are grown but when they were growing up they were really easy to get up and they loved school so they wanted to get ready to go. I was the first one up in the morning and I had breakfast and finished up lunches. They I got their breakfasts and while they were eating, I got dressed to go to work. I was a teacher and so we all had to get out at the same time.

No kids, just cat. I always get as much ready the night before as I can. Set out clothes, decide what I have to put in my smoothie. I feed the cat, make my smoothie & check my email and then I'm ready to go. Thanks for the contest.

Breakfast is a must in our house.It helps and saves time to prepare the night before you can set the table , have juice mixed or cooled,even cook cereal to be warmed ,in the morning,make lunches.

dolphee said...

I set out both of my kids clothes and breakfast cereal. I get up in time to take my daughter to school about 15 minutes beforehand.

Kristen Taylor said...

Every a.m for the past two years..my son wakes up and askes for a sippy cup of milk. We get him that and then watch a show while we get dressed. Chase picks out his clothes the night before and we have them all layed out in his room. A.M's usually go smooth!

CandG~Jill W said...

My daughter is only 2, so there is no rushing around yet. I get up for work, get ready, and am lucky if she is awake by the time I leave. She still drinks a bottle in the morning, so that’s about all I have to do even if she is awake-make her bottle. Now, when she gets older, I’m sure it will be a different story, but my husband is a realtor & is always home with her in the mornings-so I consider myself very lucky! thanks!

I set out her clothes the night before and made her lunch and put it in the fridge. I gathered her stuff and put it by the door and then I got up early and got ready for work, then woke her up.

Darlene said...

Every morning I get up and go online. My daughter is older so she is responsible for herself. It was awful when I had to wake her up for school because I'd start out being nice and then she wouldn't get up until I went in there and screamed at her. Then it was the mad dash to get ready for school. Mornings were not fun back then.

Shana said...

My morning routine begins when one of the kids wakes me up. Usually around 7am. Immediately start breakfast making, vitamin giving, lunch packing, etc. Then its off to get dressed, brush teeth & hair, pack bag and off we go. I made this sound REALLY simple and stress free but it actually is not. Something usually goes wrong somewhere along the way and I am always running late!!!!

Naomi said...

It cracks my daughter up when I crawl into bed with her and hug her awake. It cracks me up when her baby brother joins in, too!

tarah86 said...

Morning routine starts with me waking up 10mins before I have to in order to be fully awake and ready to get up. I shower, get dressed, brush my teeth eat breakfast and then do my hair and head for the door.

kateandlucy said...

My toddler eats Oatmeal to start her day off right!

tiff snedaker said...

We don't have too much of a morning routine. We eat breakfast when my boys get up, cuddle and watch a show, and then sometimes into the bathtub, or we go somewhere, or over to the park to play.

Awesome giveaway - thank you!

Our morning routine is laid-back. My daughter isn't in school yet so we just wake up when we wake up, no alarm clocks allowed! We have breakfast, brush our teeth, get dressed and get ready for another day filled with playing dress-up, reading books, drawing with crayons or chalk, blowing bubbles, and the usual housework!

Rachael said...

Because my daughter is only 16 months old and I am 7 months pregnant, our morning routine isn't consistent unless it is Sunday mornings. My husband is an assistant pastor so we try to leave an hour early. I have breakfast ready the night before, just pop it in the oven, I eat, feed my daughter, and then dress her and do her hair and then do my hair because she is bound to get me dirty if I do it any other way! :-)

I am so lucky that hubby makes the breakfast, so I can sleep late. The kids are then put back to bed with me until we all get up.

Arin said...

I get my four year old ready for the day first-because her bus picks her up for preschool first-then I run back in and make sure my six year old is ready-she can do this all by herself-but needs help with her hair. Meanwhile I get the baby all ready for the day-and then myself. Then we head off to take oldest to school and run whatever errands needed.

one6ylady said...

Up at 4:20 a.m. to get hubby up and help pack his lunch and let our three rescued MinPins go outside for a potty break. Go back to sleep around 5:00 a.m. and snooze for 30 minutes or so (if I can fall asleep), then get back up at 5:30 a.m. to get daughter up for school. Set out cereal, milk, and glass of juice/drink for her and make sure everything is signed and she gets off to the bus on time at 6:30 a.m. Then I grab a shower and get ready for work. I usually grab my breakfast drink to go and have a protein bar for breakfast while I'm on the road headed for work. It's a busy morning for me.

Aura said...

With twins and a five year old and a bus that comes really early and 2 blocks away it's very important to plan the night before. All clothing is laid out, bags packed, stroller opened with diaper bag packed, phone charging at front door and bowls of cereal set on the table. We're still always in a rush but I try to wake up before the kids to help get a head start

Roxy said...

I put an english muffin in the toaster, check email, eat the muffin and then brush my teeth. After that I put on the outfit I decided the night before.

Each night before bedtime we lay out clothes, and I make sure my purse, backpack, and anything else we need are near the door. In the morning I have two alarms set on my cell phone, one to let us know that if we aren't eating breakfast yet we need to really get a move on, and another to remind us that it's time to put lunches in backpacks, shoes on feet, and jackets on backs so we can get out the door and walk to school on time. Thank you for the generous offer!

crystal said...

I don't have children but i do have dogs and that is my biggest morning routine. If its wet outside my dog makes me walk him around the house. I also have to get my hubby a drink since he is not capable of anything for at least 20 minutes after waking up!?!Silly Boy:)

Tracy said...

No kids, but hectic nonetheless as I'm a bus commuter and my morning revolves around a long walk to the bus stop and if I miss it, I'll be late for work because the bus runs every half hour. So it's definitely stressful in the morning here.

Bohemian Gypsy said...

My mourning routine tips are to have your kids clothes ready the night before and to also have breakfast ready the night before. Having everything ready the night before helps to make our mornings go much smoother. I get our daughter up in the morning by gently calling her name and if that doesn't work, I tickle her. School day mornings are a lot less confusing when I am organized; this makes it easier to get our daughter up and ready for school and there on time.

Scott said...

Up at 4:30, cup of coffee, go to the gym and swim laps for 35-45 min. then home for a shower, breakfast, check email, then off to school at 7:30

To get my siblings up in the morning, we used to have to put the lights on and just leave them. But now they understand they'll get in trouble if they sleep later than the "official time to get up".

Marc said...

Provided I get to go to sleep in the night, my morning routine would be to wake up anywhere from 6:00 AM to close to noon. Then I exercise by walking or lifting weights, then I eat.

Terri said...

I am, thankfully, the evening parent more so than the morning parent. I have to be to work by 6am so hubby does the waking of our 15, 13 and 10 yr olds. They are remarkably self sufficient and pleasant in the morning so we've been quite blessed through the years!

Krissie said...

Having a hubby who works nights, means the morning rush always rests on my shoulders. Being a mom of 4, two of which are school aged, the mornings are what I dread most! My 8 yr old is fairly easy-going in the morning, that is when she decides to roll out of bed after the 4th or 5th wake up call. My 6yr old, is the complete opposite. He loves to scream, whine and cry about how much he hates school (he's a 1st grader, imagine?) I literally lay in bed for an extra 15 mins every morning just preparing myself for the stressful task of morning routine, ugh! After walking back and forth to their perspective rooms repeatedly, waking and warning my kiddies of the severe punishment they will suffer if they murmur one word loud enough to wake up either one of their two younger siblings, I'm ready to climb back in bed and pull the covers over my head! Yet, the same routine occurs each morning. I wonder if the new Capri Sun Sunrise is just the product to get those kids out of bed and give them a refreshing burst of energy to start their day...actually Capri Sun Sunrise give ME the energy I need to start the day, because I sure need it more than them!! =)

JRG said...

Set everything out in advance, to include clothes in the bathroom. Set two alarm clocks just in case. Use a blender to mix quality breakfast foods for your kids.

hminnesota said...

my elder one(6yrs) is very picky in her clothes so we pick them the night before. Homework, backpack everything is ready. Socks are the most important along with any notes for school. Let me admit, mornings are still a mess no matter how much I try in advance.thanks

Lauren said...

We only have one daughter and she is two, but man is it hard to get out the door some days! Lately I've noticed that if I spend the first fifteen minutes after she wakes with her just doing nothing in her room, then she is much more cooperative and ready to do the morning routine. You can't hurry her and if I try to get her dressed or fed or bathed straight when she wakes up, the whole morning is a fight!

Thanks for the contest!

msmith12 said...

I have three children ages 5, 2, and 5 months; so, my mornings are very hectic. I wake up my 5 year old first, and as he's getting dressed, we're usually reviewing is flashcard words of the week. Once he's dressed, he keeps my 5 month old entertained by playing peek-a-boo with him in his crib (he never gets tired of that). As he's doing this, I'm getting my 2 year old ready for his school. I get my 5 and 2 year old off to preschool, and then I am finally able to breath...once my 5 month old's nap comes along.

george ferris said...

My morning routine. Get up, read the bible for a half hour, do exercise for a half hour, clean the house for a mhalf hour,
Make breakfast, wake the kids, get them up and cleaned. Then tell them if they are good and do what they are told, I would give them a healthy treat at the end of the day and do what they want to do within reason.
This usually works and goes smooth unless they are sick-then no getting through to them.

For my 3 year old twins, a chart with the morning routine helps a lot. They get a sticker on their chart for each thing do/finish and before they know it, they are ready for the day.

every night after bathtime, we lay out our clothes, shoes, bookbags, etc. Everything is ready to go in the am. sometimes we even decide on our breakfast for the morning too

tatertot374 said...

Our morning routine starts at 7am. I wake all 3 of my children up - well 2 as my 3 year old wakes me up lol. Showers then dressed downstairs for breakfast which could be cereal, cinnamon rolls, eggs or pop tarts depending on the their mood and time. Off to the bust stop at 8:40 then back home for me and my 3 year old to get my caffeine fix :) THank you for a great giveaway!

Jacqueline in Atlanta said...

Getting clothes and bookbags packed the night before is essential to a stress-free morning. I plan meals a week at a time and post the breakfast menu on the frig, even if it is just cereal and bananas, so everyone is on the same page. We strive to be ready for the car or bus five minutes early so that when the shoelaces get in a knot at the last minute or someone remembers they need to PRINT the report they did the night before or whatever, we have a little time cushion to handle the last minute emergency. And I swear, every stinkin day there is a last minute emergency - ha!

Thanks for having the giveaway!

I try to have relaxing mornings by having as much done the night before as possible. (clothes chosen, lunches packed, backpacks packed). This way I can let my kids hopefully wake up on their own, the day goes so much better if they wake up when they are ready versus me waking them up!

My kids are not in school yet so the routine is the same every day. I get up aroun 7 AM and wake them up. Get my older boy to the potty ASAP (he just started staying dry all night) and then get them both dressed and to the table. They read books or play with toys while I make breakfast and we all eat together. Then it is down to the playroom or outside into the backyard for play.

Anonymous said...

One simple word: Breakfast. I used to think I didn't have time in the a.m. to make a hot breakfast, but found out quite acidentally, that if I do make it, everything else falls into place, and mornings are so much easier! By the time breakfast is gone, the kids are wide awake, happy, and easy to get ready (or get ready themselves) for school.

Morning Tips:

A child's favorite: Yogurt on one half of the plate, with applesauce on the other side! Some kids like to mix the two together, it's still tasty!

Play a game with the kids while they eat, distract them so there is not so much pressure on eating.

Let me see, my oldest is up at the crack of dawn on the weekends,but on the weekdays it is a whole different scenario. Hubby makes his lunch on days he wants home lunch. Shower days are easiest as he loves to shower, but other than that, it's not a pretty picture. He doesn't get that where he goes to school (and kids are sometimes late) I work and must be on time. Let's just suffice it to say, it's loud in the mornings.

ewalsh said...

The morning routine depends on if it's a work day for me or not. But on work days, I let my crabby in the morning, fifteen year old's dad have the pleasure of waking him up.

Everyone showers before me, while I get things together, make sure cell phones are charged, lunch in back pack.

Then while they eat, I shower and get ready. Woo hoo!

ciara said...

my kids are a little older so they are able to get up on their own w the help of an alarm. i will wake up not long after, make sure they are up and getting dressed, head downstairs and make their lunches if it's not school lunch day. my husband ALWAYS buys capri suns for lunches and anytime. he has since we've been married almost 5 yrs now and even before that, so those are always going into their lunches. they have breakfast, brush teeth, do hair or whatever else. i make sure they have their homework before their out the door. then i watch them walk the 5 mins it takes to get to school :)

The Noble Fat N Happy One said...

since we are hmeschoolers, and both of my girls are pretty young still, we dont often have to rush in the am, unless there is an appt to go to. in those instances i find it helpful to have clothes laid out the night before, for everyone, the diaper bag prepacked, including snacks, and waterbottles filled and in the fridge ready to go. if we are in too much of a rush to eat, we do a stick b-fast, a banana, a clif zbar and a cheese stick, easy to at in carseats on the go.

Evan said...

I get up about 30 minutes before I have to leave in the morning. 15 of those are spent getting dressed/brushing teeth/shaving, the other 15 is spent with a blank stare in front of the refrigerator. In the end I usually just realize that I need to take something and go if I want to make it in time rather than actually deciding upon anything, and what I end up grabbing could then put me in a good mood or a bad mood. Usually can't go wrong though with some juice and a pop tart.

When I wake in the morning and get ready then spend a little time on the computer. I have two boys, ages 1 and 2 and they wake up on their own around 9 a.m. Once they wake up we have breakfast the playtime.

CanCan (MomMostTraveled) said...

My kids are only 4 and 1. The 4 year old goes to preschool which the drop off is between 8:30 and 9.
When my husband goes in to work early, I take my son to school. Some days he doesn't have to go in early and then HE drops off my son.
My husband makes breakfast for the boys and I eat after the school drop off.
Our mornings are pretty long because the boys wake up on their own around 5 am! Whew!

All outfits are set out the night before. My son gets up, gets dressed, combs his hair, eats and then brushes his teeth. Then he is out the door on his bike. Some mornings it's calm an relaxed but most mornings it's nothing short of a frenzy. It just depends on how many times I hit that snooze bar.

We have a calendar that I use to keep organized. I write all the gym dates, music and sports practices down. We look at the calendar the night before and get everything ready. This saves us time in the morning and it is less stressful. I make the lunches the night before also.

jmcharries said...

I notice my kids like to have a routine so we always have the same breakfast and they love it. If they don't want to wake up I actually turn on the lights and that does the trick!

casey aubut said...

Since I am more of a night person, I try to do as much as I can the night before. I will do baths, pick out their clothes for the next day, pack their bags and lunches. That way in the morning- we get dressed and can be out of the house in 30 min!

My2Gs said...

My Tip: Pack lunches and make coffee the night before. Get up early and get yourself ready before the kids wake up.

Tiaras and Tantrums said...

our morning routine is pretty laid back. All lunches are backed the night before. All snacks and folders and books etc are packed in backpacks and hanging on the hooks by the back door ready to go. I have three children and their clothes are laid on the floor the night before so they only need to hop out of bad and get dressed. Breakfast is always the same(my kids are very picky eaters) cinnamon waffles with loads of syrup and orange juice. Come hair, brush teeth and off we go to school. We drive b/c we don't believe the bus is a great place for our children to learn wonderful "new" things.

Oh, and I try to get a cup of coffee in there somehow - usually drank on the way to school, half spilled down my shirt most mornings!

Definitely having a game plan the night before. And I usually wake up earlier than normal just to prepare if we have big stuff going on that day. Breakfast is much needed for a good jump start! And trying to relax ;) Otherwise my day is pretty laid back for now...she's young enough to where I don't have strict schedules to deal with.

Holy cow, Jen! It's busy in here! (Congrats!) Fortunately, my routine in the morning as far as the kids goes is "Are you driving, or am I?" Yeah, I know you're jealous. My kids always loved Capri Sun, though. Maybe I should buy some for those days when we are eating breakfast in the car...

My kids get their own breakfast in the morning - so cereal is a big help with that. And, no tv is allowed so they'll focus on getting ready.

my morning routine...well with my daughter she has to get a bunch of meds and a tube feeding, so I always have to stay ontop of things. For my son...I have been blessed with a kid that has a great sleeping schedule. He always wakes up no problems and we start by going in the kitchen and getting a cup of choc milk!

I don't have children, but do have dogs which I consider to be my kids. I usually make some tea and drink that while getting ready for work. shelbywinchell@gmail.com

Shasta said...

On school mornings, I let my son sleep as long as possible, he gets up easier that way. It only takes him a few minutes to get ready, boys are really easy to get ready! He's not ready to eat right away so he eats at school. Letting him sleep as long as possible seems to help him in getting up easier/faster. Now I'm sure when my other boys are school-age, they'll be totally different!
They LOVE Capri Sun btw!!

Picking out their clothes the night before is the only way to get out of the house on time in the morning.

Haila said...

This is a bit embarrassing, but my preschooler doesn't own any pajamas. He just sleeps in his clothes. It was his idea originally (doesn't like pj's for whatever reason) but we realized, hey, saves us tons of time in the AM. Obviously, we favor wrinkle-free outfits!

He loves Capri Sun too, by the way. Honest.

My granddaughters are 8 and 12 and are the slowest eaters I ever saw! I end up hovering and pleading and begging every meal. So in the mornings we need portable foods! I bake 24 healthy muffins at a time and freeze them up. In the evening I take out 4 then in the morning I can just pop them into the microwave.Along with a juice drink we are ready to go! Heres a recipe they we like:
Spiced Yogurt Muffins
Ingredients
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup light brown sugar
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground allspice
1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
3/4 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg
2 large eggs, at room temperature
1 1/4 cups plain low-fat yogurt
4 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
1/4 cup unsweetened applesauce
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1 tablespoon granulated sugar

Directions
Preheat the oven to 375°. Line 18 muffin cups with paper or foil liners. Lightly spray the liners with vegetable oil spray.
In a food processor, combine the flour, brown sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, allspice, cloves and 1/2 teaspoon of the nutmeg and pulse to blend; transfer to a large bowl. In a medium bowl, whisk the eggs, yogurt, butter, applesauce and vanilla. Fold the yogurt mixture into the dry ingredients until just blended.
Spoon the batter into the prepared muffin cups. Sprinkle the granulated sugar and remaining 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg over the muffins. Bake for 18 minutes, until the muffins are springy; let cool in the pans for 5 minutes, then transfer to a wire rack. Serve warm or at room temperature.

Luckily my kids have different routines in the morning. My older son I wake up and he gets up immediately and takes his shower. Meanwhile I wake up the younger one but let him stay in bed for another 7 minutes before he has to get up. Then he comes and eats breakfast while the other one washes, puts in contacts, gets dressed, etc. and then they swap. This way they don't have to be in the bathroom at the same time. Did I mention they were teenagers?

Angela said...

Our mornings usually consist of lots of encouraging to get out the bed. No matter how early we try to get up, we always end up rushing out the door.

Anna Etheridge said...

I wake up and eat breakfast and take my hour walk! That is what gets me going!

Heather said...

As soon as we get up we all get dressed and make our beds. While the kids are getting dressed I unload the dishwasher and make the breakfast. Following routines helps streamline the morning.

Sara said...

My morning routine consists of hustling my first grader out the door to eat breakfast at school. This is the only way our neighbor will take him to school along with their daughter so I don't have to get my twin girls out in the mornings. I wish it was different, but that's it. I would love this giveaway!

Amber said...

I have such a hard time getting out of bed so my husband handles the morning routine. The kids wake up and he makes either pancakes or french toast. Then the day starts. All our children are 3 and under so there is not off to school.

I am not a morning person. Consequently, our morning routine consists of me rolling out of bed, pulling on sweat pants, and getting the kids, up, dressed, brushed, and out. I know I really should give them a little more time in the morning, but we all struggle with early wake-ups.

Shania said...

I don't have kids. My morning routine is wake up by 6:00am to music. splash my face with water to try to wake up. Shower, dress (dance a little if the music is good) then grab a granola bar and a bottle of water or juice as I head out the door. On days off I sleep in and then the same minus the dressing and running out the door. Instead I head for my computer.

Carrie said...

my routine is wake up, eat breakfast, get dressed, and don't get on the computer until those two things are done.

Mama Dawg said...

My daughter gets up in such a good mood, it's not too hard to get her to do what needs to be done. However, she does tend to want to watch some t.v. before she has to catch the bus. In order for her to do that, she has to be literally ready to walk out the door ready before she can even turn it on. It has helped immensely. She gets ready in a flash just so she can have time to watch about 10 minutes worth of t.v.

Tina12312 said...

I was very lucky with my son. He would get right up, eat breakfast, get cleaned up and even talk to me and play a little game with our dog before going to school. It was wonderful. Thank you!

silverhartgirl said...

We keep the tv off and pick out clothes and do showers the night before. so we just need to get dressed and eat in the morning

Linda @ My Trendy Tykes said...

Well, I wish I had the opportunity to wake my kids up. They usually wake me up @ the crack of dawn UNLESS it is on a day where we actually HAVE to get up and then I can't seem to get them to move.

I would love to try these new Capri Sun drinks. (Notice, I say "I" would like to try them!) hee hee

I don't have children, But I run a Home Daycare and I have to keep to our schedule or it messes everything up for the entire day, sometimes several days.
I start my day at 5:30 a.m with a shower, then a cup of tea and blogging time. at about 6:15 I start my day... Kiddos arrive about 6:45. Breakfast is started for school kids, then the wee babe has to eat... He must eat by 7:45 or he is miserable, feed the other little boys, and wee babe is down for nap.. Reading time, craft time with the little boys, and then wee babe is awake.. That ia all before 10 a.m.
Busy, Busy...

staciefrost said...

I always get up first and make the coffee. I shower and get ready, next it's time for my sweet husband to get up and give our little boy (he's five) a shower. While they are in the shower I make the beds, then get my little boy ready for pre-school. Then, it's breakfast for hubby and son. While they are eating, I'm fixing lunch for our little guy and drinking my coffee. We brush our teeth, then we're off to school. After I drop him off, I come home, eat breakfast and do the dishes! We've got a routine down pat, which makes every day a little easier...we move like clock work!!

This will be a GREAT prize! Good luck everyone!!!!

To make my mornings go more smoothly, we lay out the kids' clothes the night before, pack lunches the night before & even determine what will be for breakfast on the night before. Taking the guess work out of mornings seems to be the defining thing that gets me out the door on time with the least amount of fuss.

The thing that works the best for me is making my 7 year old shower in the morning. I used to have him bathe at night thinking that would give us one less thing to worry about in the morning, but I have no found he gets up and going way better if he has a shower.

I don't need an alarm clock because I wake up around 7:30 to my son chanting mama! mama! Yes, he's still in my room. Stumble down stairs and fix him a sippy of milk and then head toward the coffee pot. I love fresh ground beans. The racket wake my 3 year old. SHe appears and take several minutes to declare what cereal she will eat. Son dumps his cereal. I clean it up. I change diapers. I pour juices. I reheat my coffee. I chase two kiddoes around the table and dress the one I catch. I reheat coffee again. I convince my daughter preschool is super fun and finally load her into the car. Off we go with my travel mug of coffee!

Susan said...

My morning routine isn't terribly hectic so far because I have no kids in school, though that is changing in the fall. Most mornings we wake up around 7/7:30, change diaper/go potty, read some books or just snuggle on the floor for 15 minutes or so and then head downstairs to have breakfast. After that we play for a little while and then get dressed and move on with our day.
I am looking forward to my son starting preschool in the fall, but
I am not looking forward to the hustle and bustle in the morning.

Get Up
Make Bed
Get Dressed
Eat Breakfast
Brush your teeth

Seems simple, but for the little ones simple works best.

My little one isn't in school. We wake up together, and we take a few minutes to just relax, read a few books, or play quietly. Then we eat breakfast and get dressed. If we're in a hurry or relaxing time is cut back.

My morning isn't too crazy yet, since my son is still young, but we're about to add another baby to the family, so I'm sure it'll get busier!

My only hint is to get things done the night before and to get everything else done before the kid gets up. I try to always have his breakfast ready before he wakes up, that way I can get him fed before his hungriness makes him too cranky!

Gale said...

1. Have breakfast on the table before waking my son up for school.
2. Have clothes in hand when I wake him up, and have him get into them before he takes one bite of breakfast (except shoes...he can do shoes right after breakfast).
3. Socks and shoes kept by the door for easy reach after breakfast.

My daughter was very slow to rise ... she needed juice before her feet could even think about hitting the ground. We laid everything out the night before and set two alarms!

I set my alarm nine minutes earlier before school so I can experience the relief of hitting the snooze button when I first wake up.

Life Is A SandCastle said...

My son had me on the 4:30 shedule for a long time from when I was pregnant till he finally quit the bottle. 4:30 every morning. Now he has dropped it to the 6:30 shedule. We eat cereal, drink juice, and start clean up. He is a good helper. Then we have art time where we draw, color, paint, and learn color & shapes. We go outside for a while to play. Lunch is next & if I'm lucky we take a nap. We spend the rest of the after playing with our dog jack and feeding our birds "ducks & Peacocks." If we are dirty well take a bath and then my help likes to help cook supper. He thinks he is a cheif. Daddys home and they spend some guy time wrestling and playing ball usually. I never knew something was missing till I got my little boy.

Elena said...

I have to admit - I have it pretty easy, as I am not married and do not have children. I get up, take a shower, get dressed, dry my hair, put on makeup, grab my lunch (prepared the night before) and head out the door! Sometimes I am too lazy the night before, so my lunch cooks while I shower... But that is nothing compared to most of you guys!

Lucky for me, my son is not a morning person. He usually sleeps in until 9:30. Then the two of us enjoy breakfast together while watching Sesame Street or Thomas the Train. Then it's off to walk the dog or go to the park.

Natalie said...

My morning routine is pretty laid back, unless I have some where to be first thing in the morning. I am a SAHM with 22 and 6 month old boys. I always make sure before I go to bed at night that our house is picked up, dishes washed, floors clean. I do not enjoy waking up to a messy house in the morning. In the morning we usually cuddle for a while, read books, eat breakfast, then our day begins. I am very blessed.

My daughter is pretty self sufficient. She gets up gets dressed. I join her with my coffee and paper. Then, she's on her bike and off to school.

My morning routine is paper then breakfast fixed by hubby

rosannepm said...

I do a lot the the night before-pack lunches, write notes, make breakfast. My kids wear uniforms so that part is easy but have to keep up with the laundry-which I like doing. I never expect them to make their beds. The bedrooms are upstairs so who cares.

thegamblinggirl said...

I try to get as much ready the night before as possible - like picking out clothes, packing lunches and bookbags and putting shoes and coats or jackets by the front door. As soon as I get up, I turn my son's light and music on to get him awake, but I don't make him get out of bed yet. I take my shower and get completely ready, then I go back and sit on his bed and we talk for a few minutes about our day. When I'm sure he's fully awake, I have him get up and get dressed while I make a quick breakfast. We both try to get out the door shortly after and most days our routine flows very smoothly.

msrodeobrat said...

pick out clothes the night before and get everything we need to take with us ready..also plan breakfast the night before so when we get up everything is organized

Jennifer said...

I work from home, so getting out the door is easy. I usually wake up about 10 minutes earlier than my daughter and get her clothes out to wear that day. After she eats breakfast, we're off to school.

I made a chart with a magnet board(dry erase board but I used permanent marker and then covered it in saran wrap so it wouldn't rub off) that has all the things I need my 6 year old to do in order to get out the door on time for school (as well as what he needs to get done before dinner time). He wakes up and watches TV until a specified time (45 minutes before leaving time) and then has to start on his chart. When he has done one thing he puts up a magnet and goes to the next. This way...he just uses the board and I don't have to nag him, I just refer to the board and let the board be the bad guy. It works like a charm in our house....I take those magnets and count them up at the end of the day (there are 15) and he gets one tally for every 3 magnets. When he gets 25 tally's, I pay him 2.50 (but I don't buy him toys anymore so it evens out really). Works like a charm for us.

I did a post about it on my blog on April 21st if you want to see the chart. Super easy and fun for him.

McMommy said...

Our morning routine? The boys wake up with daddy and have their own routine, most of which I don't know....because I am still snoozing!

But by 7:30am, the whole house is up and eating breakfast and getting dressed for school.

Karen of Sillymonkeez said...

Luckily, my son is still only going to preschool 3 days per week and my husband is home those mornings. Usually we get my preschooler up, fed, and off to school while our 2yr old twins are still sleeping. It really helps when I lay out my son's school clothes the night before.

Terri said...

My main survival tactic for mornings is a simple breakfast schedule. We eat the same things on the same days each week so everyone knows the routine. Different children are assigned to handle getting everything out on different days as well.

M.A. said...

The kids all got themselves growed up and educated and gainfully employed and married and are busy having hectic mornings while raising their own families. So no more wild mornings here. Just peacefully waking up and sitting out on the porch with a hot slice of toast, a cup of freshly brewed coffee and the early edition newspaper.

JamericanSpice said...

My morning routines can either be calm or frantic. But my kids aren't yet in school so I'm still at an advantage.

I wake them up usually be tickles or turning the lights on and off like a kid would do :) then it's bathroom washings and teeth cleaning and then off to breakfast and then some form of learning...spanish or drawing and then off to play.

Surely as this older one begins school it will be much different.

Betty N said...

My children are grown now, but what helped me most was that I got up an hour earlier than the rest of my family and calmly had my breakfast, packed lunches and made breakfast for my family. While they ate breakfast, I got dressed for work.

Colin's Mom said...

My son only goes to "school" one day a week but that's enough to keep me on my toes. I try to get as much ready the night before as possible. I get his lunch and sippy cup ready the night before. The next morning we're able to enjoy breakfast together before changing the diaper and clothes. Then we're off.

barbara said...

I do everything the night before but put refrigerated stuff in lunch boxes. While they eat breakfast, I stand at the door and jangle my keys so they know it's time to leave :-)

A Family Completed... said...

My kids love to sleep in... not as much as Mom and Dad but better than most kids there age. I rely on my 20 month old to be up before 9 to wake me up so I can get my daughter to kindergarten on time. We have had a few close calls but she hasn't been late yet! thankfully they have recess before going into class. i;m worried for next year when she goes all day. I think I will HAVE to use an alarm clock...ugh! Nothing to exciting on a good day were up early enough to catch a show before school, lol

We have a quick routine. My husband wakes my daughter up, they go to the potty, change clothes, brush teeth and head downstairs. During all this, I make breakfast and pack her a lunch. By the time they come down, I head out to work and after about 15 minutes playtime my husband takes her to school and she eats her breakfast there.
