I stay in a apartment, little big. So every evening I gets a chance to sit and chit chat about our daily chores and some odd habits of our children with other mommies. Few days back , we had a discussion for having a breakfast ,before kids go to school. Many of them just said….only a glass of milk and nothing else. I was little shocked. Because after milk they travel for an hour, than another two more hours for prayers and study . Thereafter comes the short break. Is it really easy for them to stay for next more than two hours with just a glass of milk. Not so.
When my elder daughter started going to class 1 last year, I did lot of R&D to develop good breakfast habits. Finally I have come to the conclusion that it should be must and first in the morning. I always try to make her ready before 20 minutes when she leaves for school . Just for a breakfast , a proper one with no hurry -burry.
This is also in particular to all mommies whose kids will soon start going to primary. Yes, Primary. Long working hours, too much of writing, extra curricular activities and many more. I am settled in Bangalore so especially southern region where child leaves early to school and comes back late. You can say almost more than 60% of a day is being spent in school or travelling. Here the school starts at 8.30 and ends up 3.30. Hmm pretty long hours. And extended hours to those who travels for long. Early pick up and last drop if the distance between your house and school is far off.
