Morning meltdowns before preschool

Meltdown mornings are my fave…yeah right! I’m 7 months preggo and my DD started preschool three days a week. For a couple of weeks now she’s been throwing a savage fit about everything – getting dressed, brushing her teeth, eating breakfast, you name it, she has something to scream about. Granted, I’m tired and sometimes cranky but I’ve tried to be extra gentle, played music, be wacky and it doesn’t help. What I can’t figure out is that her teacher says she seems to enjoy her time at preschool, so why is she having a meltdown every morning?

Homework Help!

I’m having a hard time getting my 8 yr old to study! We’ve limited screen time and play time. He has a quiet place to study and I always give him a snack and something to drink but he balks when I nudge him. Do you have any study strategies that work for your kids you could pass on? Thanks so much!

Kids Lunch Ideas?

What do you pack for your kids' school lunches? I've been packing them junky stuff like mini pizzas and mac n cheese, and I feel awful about it. They're not sandwich eaters, which is a bummer. What do you suggest that's fresh, healthy, and easy to prepare in the morning? Thank you!
