Organization is the key to finding what we need when we need it. If you have a spot for backpacks, shoes, jackets etc. then life is smooth as silk! In a perfect world! Seriously though, it does make morning easier. Having said that, also make your cute children accountable for their things. They can do it and should do it. Responsibility and expectation are important for children to learn. A great woman once said "by the time YOU think your kids are old enough to do something, they have no interest in doing it"!
