When my little family grew to 5 members, which included three little boys, I wasn’t prepared for a lot of things. When they were all under three years old, I joked about not knowing how to handle three teenage boys down the road. I thought about the amount of food, dishes, and laundry we’d go through. I pictured it being astronomical and unmanageable. Who would have guessed it would have happened by the time by oldest turned six?

School is in session, our calendars are filling up quickly and the days aren’t getting any longer. Ethan has been in school for almost 2 weeks now and I can tell this year is going to be busier than ever. Not just school activities or work-related events; Our fun-filled family days aren’t slowing down anytime soon.

I often talk about keeping things stocked in the pantry. With three boys, it makes life much easier. If I made a list of things I always have on hand, fruit juice and gummy snacks would definitely be at the very top of the list. It’s like clockwork every day, the same time, they request a little snack. Ninety percent of the time, it is those two things.

Last year was our first year experiencing organized sports with our little ones. Our oldest started with soccer and did a few sessions of t-ball. One of the first things that were discussed at practices, was signing up for post-game snacks. I found it incredibly odd that at first, I had a hard time picking out snacks for the team on my assigned days.

Making various lists has always helped me streamline my day and hectic schedules. I need that visual reminder and that satisfaction of crossing things off once complete. I normally have different notepads, list-pads and my planner on hand, all filled with my lists I reference throughout the day. I am trying something different now, and making printable sheets to help organize them and eliminate all the notepads.

Is summer really almost over? The school year starts next week, but I am not quite ready to let go of the warm summer months, that blazing sun and the bright skies.  I have been thinking about planning a fun summer party outside, but honestly, the heat and humidity has been a scorcher lately.

Today I am sharing how I get a fresh start each morning as part of a sponsored post by NESTLE Coffee-mate. All opinions are my own. 

Mornings haven’t always been my thing. There are still some days I wake up and think, “not today”, I am not a morning person. However, the last year or so I have discovered that with each morning and each start to the day, good things can come. Ensuring a fresh start daily is important.
