Back to School Guide: The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly
*Beep beep* the repetitive beeping of the alarm clock wakes you up. Are you ready? It’s time to get the kids ready to go back to school - once again. Mornings can be stressful enough. Parents all over the country are getting ready to juggle getting the kids out of bed, making breakfast, packing lunch boxes – and oh yes getting themselves ready for work. We know this is not always smooth sailing and we want to help you out!
We know chaotic mornings involve kids sleeping through their alarm, someone sneakily watching tv despite the ‘no screen time’ rule, refusal to eat breakfast or brush their teeth or get dressed without a constant reminder. When it’s time to leave the house a sock or shoe miraculously disappears. And just when you think it couldn’t get any worse... you deal with the refusal of your child not wearing a coat because it’s not ‘cool’. When you manage to ‘successfully’ drop the kids to school... that little voice inside your head mutters, same time tomorrow? Even though you sometimes feel the urge to pull your hair out, these moments of organised chaos are truly memorable and priceless.
You are probably excited and a little nervous about preparing your child for their next milestone in life. Summer is over and the school season is waiting to be embraced. We know it can be expensive raisings kids, therefore our back to school collection at PN Home features budget-friendly furniture and furnishings that will last for years to come.
