DD is 3.5 and has been in some form of "school" since she was 6 months old. School itself is not new to us, but this year with preschool, it's a WHOOOOOLE new world, LOL. At her old schools and at her summer school just the past few months, we were able to sort of roll in whenever we wanted (I own my own business and help run a family business as well, so I have a very flexible schedule, and SAHM with her two days a week).
Now, preschool is REAL school! The kiddos start at 8 am. We live about 7 minutes from DD's school. She is NOT used to getting up early like this (she is normally a sleeper-inner). Going from getting to school at 9:30 or 10 to having to be there before 8 for carpool line is definitely difficult for both of us!
So, what do you do to make mornings seamless and easy for everyone? She's my only kid, and my DH is OOT a lot, so often it's just the two of us. I'm a very organized person (the business I own is actually an organizing business), but this morning, we did not get up early enough to avoid the morning rush (got her up at 6:45-50 to be out the door by 7:40), and I HATE that. We got to the carpool line in time so we weren't late, but I just want to make school mornings (3 days a week) run as smoothly as possible. DD is kind of a slowpoke and NOT a morning person
TIA for any tips/advice!
