Good morning Big Sexy people!
Happy Saturday to all of you. I hope you’re all having a great day so far. IMO, if you got up out of bed, it’s a great day.
As those of you with kids start the back to school routines, try and keep it together.
Help your spouses. There’s a lot of moving pieces happening to get the kids ready for school. Reach out to your spouse and ask “What do you need me to do to make this year’s ‘Back to School’ adventure as stress free as possible?” If they don’t need help, don’t offer to “help improve” their system.
If you need some help, ask us. We all know you’re the commander of the family ship. Tell us what we need to do help make this year’s Back to School adventure less stressful.
Be cool. This happens every August. (September if you were born in the 70’s). Ask mom and dad what you can do to help as well. Maybe ease up on the public meltdown while shopping for pencils and notebooks. (Do kids still need pencils and notebooks? Or have they switched to tablets and stylus’?)
Families are like small armies. Whether you’re two strong or, like mine, nine strong. We need to show our kids that we all need to help out and work together.
We need to demonstrate to kids that family success is a team sport. We need to show them how to deal with potentially stressful situations in a positive way through teamwork. In a family, everyone has a job to do.

How does your family complete the Back to School routine?
