So...Kindergarten. Tomorrow is the big day :) We are all excited (well, most of us). However, I have a feeling we will all be adjusting to the earlier wake time. We like to sleep in around this house!
I have been trying to think of a few things that I hope will make the morning routine faster. One of those things is picking out clothes the night before. I'm sure quite a few parents do this.
My husband used to call this his "clothes witch" because he would lay his clothes out on the floor, and he thought it looked like a witch :)
Since we don't really have any room on the floor - I was hoping to keep the clothes hanging.
a hook installed at the top on the back of the door - so I figured I could somehow hang the clothes from this. The trick was getting the hangers low enough for my 5 year old to reach.
I grabbed this jute webbing I've had around the house, and cut a long strip.
Using my button whole maker on my sewing machine, I made a button whole at the top, to hang on the hook, and then 2 toward the bottom, to hang 1 shirt and 1 pants hanger...
I also had a little clip (you could use a safety pin, a chip clip - whatever you have) which I sewed on to the very bottom to hold socks.
Such an easy fix - and so convenient!! Now, my daughter can have clothes picked out and hanging on the door, ready to put on as soon as she wakes up! Depending on how it goes, I might add a clip for a headband, or other hair stuff.
Here's hoping that breakfast, and lunch making, and brushing teeth and every other thing goes as smoothly :)
