Getting into the School Routine after Summer Break

back to school

Fall will officially begin on September 23rd and most children are back into their school routine all over the country. Our own little one started his second year of preschool during the first week of September.

Back to school is definitively bittersweet for me, I am excited for him to go back to school to play with his friends, learn new things and to have some extra free time in the mornings while baby naps and he is away at school, but on the other hand I also miss having him home, going out for outings with both kids and the freedom of not having a set schedule. The first weeks back at school can be a bit crazy but both parents and children can adapt to the new schedules quickly, I believe it is all about creating a routine and sticking to the same schedule.

To make the transition to back to school a little sweeter I recently surprised my son with a nice treat after school. I am a #KinderMom Influencer this year and a KINDER® SURPRISE® egg made the perfect sweet treat for him.  He doesn’t usually get a lot of sweet treats during the week so I am sure the KINDER® SURPRISE® eggs was a special surprise, he loves finding the cute toys inside and I love his excitement and smiles!

  1. My son absolutely loves kinder eggs! I think he’ll flip when he finds out that Transformers will be the next toy in the eggs. He loved it when it was Marvel super heroes.

  2. Such handsome smiles! Glad everyone has transitioned well to the new routine. Only 88 days until Christmas vacation!

  3. I have so many memories of my boy and kinder eggs. I also have a small (ish) bucket of all the toys he’s collected over the years. There a big difference in the toys now, from the ones from about 10 yrs ago…

  4. I used to love kinder eggs

  5. love the Transformers kinder eggs

  6. What it’s Fall already? How awful, I’m not ready yet – it was 27C here yesterday, chillier today though.
    My children could never get enough Kinder Eggs and this holds true for them today despite them being adults. Naturally my grandchildren have picked up the habit 🙂

  7. Kinder eggs just keeps coming up with the most awesome toys

  8. My grandson loves Kinder eggs , we have the black and white ball you have in the pic , a new surprise every time 🙂 your kids are just so CUTE 🙂

  9. I bought a Kinder egg the other day for my son…..the enthusiasm isn’t there like it used to be (kinda figured since he’s a teen now), but he was a bit surprised I got him one. Definitely getting a bunch for the xmas stockings this year, for both him and his baby sister 🙂
    I know someone who totally made a hobby of collecting the toys and used them as xmas tree decorations. Their entire tree was covered and then they took a photo and made xmas cards. Awesome!!!

  10. Our eldest great grandson is five this fall and loves transformers as well. He starts kindergarten,and it just seems like I was holding this newborn in my arms a few months ago.. As you get older, time seems to pass by more quickly and you realize just how precious the time is when they are babies and toddlers.

  12. Kinder Eggs are such fun
