Back to School Comfort Giveaway

OK parents… it’s back to school time and I know some of you are celebrating. I happen to be a little weepy.

Leah starts preschool this year, Ella will be in 1st grade full time (Kindergarten was just half days), Kelly is headed into 3rd grade, and Jacob is beginning his last year of elementary school. I am totally not ready for them to get so big.

If you are sitting around with eyes on the brink of tears, like me, you might like this comfort filled giveaway from Kellogg’s Frosted Mini Wheats.

My kids love Kellogg’s Frosted Mini Wheats. On those mornings when I don’t have enough time to make breakfast, Kellogg’s Frosted Mini Wheats come to the rescue. I feel just fine sending my kids off for a day of fun at school with full tummies from Kellogg’s.

Kellogg’s is all about making your mornings a little easier… and if you are like me, these first few days easy is going to mean “comfort” as I sit in my empty house with my babies all at school. My friends at Kellogg’s have offered one lucky Dine & Dish reader to win a “Comfort Gift Basket” including a gorgeous plush robe from Liz Claiborne, Pajamagram fluffy white slippers and a box of Kellogg’s Frosted Mini Wheats.

To enter the giveaway, simply leave a comment on this post telling me how you make school mornings a little easier.

All entries must be received by midnight, CST on Sunday, August 26th 2012. Winner will be chosen via Random.org and notified via valid email address.

This is a sponsored post on behalf of Kellogg’s, who is providing the giveaway product for one of my readers. All opinions are my own.

  1. that has been my breakfast nearly every day for the last few years!!

  2. We make sure everything is packed and ready to go the night before. Makes for a much smoother morning.

  3. Mornings go easier when I program the coffee pot the night before. hahahha!!!!
    Fun giveaway, I too am a bit weepy. As much as I crave a little routine this time of year, it’s a harsh reminder (slap in the face) how old my kids are becoming!

  4. We try to have Katie’s backpack loaded up and ready to go the night before, but many mornings we are rushing around, getting her agenda signed, etc. We aren’t as organized as I’d like, but we always make time for breakfast, and Mini-Wheats are one of her favorites!

  5. To make school morning a little easier, I pre-pack their school bags and some lunch items the night before. That way, putting their lunch bag in the morning is a breeze while the kids enjoy their breakfast.

  6. With two kids in different schools this year, and a tardy time that’s 30 minutes earlier than last year (and did I mention that we aren’t morning people?), I’m packing lunch and picking out clothes the night before. My other new goal is meal planning over the weekend to prepare a list for my Monday trip to the grocery store.

  7. Planning lunches for the entire week! I make a list and pick up all the ingredients early and do the cooking in advance.

  8. I have a list of items that my son can chose from for breakfast which makes him feel he has some control in the mornings.

  9. Having clothes laid out, meals and coffee ready to go the night before definitely makes for an easier morning!

    i try to have outfits organized and lunches packed the night before… doesnt mean it always happens though lol

  11. I set out the dishes the night before and food if it is from the pantry.

  12. Ok–i don’t have kids, but my mom always used to have lunches packed and clothes laid out the night before.

  13. Packing lunches the night before is a lifesaver!

  14. always go into my little sisters room and give her a kiss to wake her up so she cant be in a bad mood :)

  15. I love these new tiny ones! And so do my boys ;)

  16. I make sure everything is done the night before… and then I get up stupid early so I’m ready to go before the kids are!

  17. Jody Burzinski says:

    We have everything laid out. I even make them get everything clear down to socks. We had manic mornings just looking for a particular pair before. I also get up and make sure I am completely ready before getting the kids up. It allows me to focus on their last minute needs without worrying if I am also ready for work. Of course we still have our morning meltdowns, but this does help.

  18. I don’t have kids, unless you count the furbabies, but my husband is a professor so I still have to “get him ready for school everyday.” I iron his clothes the night before- just so he won’t wake me up with setting up the ironing board, auto program the coffee, and I pre-make a smoothie for him for breakfast, and a salad for him for lunch. Does this entry count? ;)

  19. For us, it’s all about routine. It makes the whole getting ready for school thing easier. Since we are all on the same page and know what needs to happen before the bus comes.

    My first born son just moved in at college. He loves Mini Wheats! We sent him with a few boxes! We try to have everything ready to go the evening before!
