With a family of 8 to get ready and out the door in the morning once school starts there is no question that mornings can be chaotic! I have discovered that keeping our morning routines simple and having Jimmy Dean Simple Scrambles® Breakfast Cups on hand for breakfast makes everything smoother.
Create a simple routine
Mornings are NOT the time I want to deal with a lot of stress and complicated routines. I have taught our children to make the mornings easy and simple. We have re-organized areas in our home to keep shoes, socks, backpacks, and homework in the same spot every day. This keeps us from scrambling for the one sock no one can find, or homework that is lost.
Have a good breakfast
A good breakfast is essential for both my kids and myself! Jimmy Dean Simple Scrambles Breakfast Cups are an easy way to make the mornings flow a little smoother. They are made with real eggs, quick & fresh. This is a fast breakfast for those mornings that are slightly more chaotic. The kids can even take them to go in the car.
I stock up at my favorite grocery store, HEB! They are located in the refrigerated section next to the breakfast sausage & bacon. You can get $1 off when you buy two using this digital coupon.

Smooth morning routines are all about thinking ahead. Little things like stocking up on Jimmy Dean Simple Scrambles Breakfast Cups can make all the difference in the morning.
We do as much prep work the night before. Double-check that everything is in its place for the morning, lunches are packed, outfits picked out, and in bed at a regular time.
Teach the kids the routine & to help themselves
With six children to get out the door, I need them to know the routine and help themselves for the things they need in the morning. I love watching my children help each other gathering all the things they need for school and helping each other get breakfast.
My boys have even started making Jimmy Dean Simple Scrambles breakfast cups for their little sisters!
I am actually kind of excited to get back in the groove of our morning routine!
