Grasshopper and Sensei is our oldest and she starts high school this fall! It’s freaking my husband and I out a little. High school, already??!! Our second thought is that our daughter is not a morning person and high school starts early. To get her at school on time, a stream lined morning routine is going to be essential.
1. Early to Bed
My daughter is a night owl so it’s a challenge to get her asleep at a decent hour. A shower at night is the way to go. It relaxes her and it’s one less thing to do in the morning. Aveeno® Stress Release Body Wash is a lovely way to slow down. Here’s a $2 coupon on any two Aveeno products.
2. Early to Rise (or at least a streamlined bathroom routine)
Oil Free Acne Wash Pink Grapefruit
Get up. Stagger into bathroom. Wash and go! Pink grapefruit is her favorite scent too!
Here’s a coupon for $1 on any (1) NEUTROGENA®Cleansing, Moisture, or Acne product (excludes NEUTROGENA® bar soap and trial/travel sizes).
3. Breakfast on the run
Grasshopper and Sensei can walk to school this year so that will allow her to eat on the run. What to stock up on?
- fruit and nut bars
- pre-made smoothies
- baggy of granola or other cereal
- PB and J sandwich on whole wheat bread
- PB and Nutella sandwich on whole wheat bread
- banana and milk
- sliced apple and peanut butter
- pumpkin oat muffin
- whole wheat bagel
- multigrain toast
- hard-boiled egg
- low-fat yogurt
