Adjust Your Routine with the Kids before You Start Working
Even if you haven’t started your new job yet—or even found it for that matter—start making small adjustments to your routine in preparation for going back to work. For instance, create a morning routine which involves getting everyone out of bed, fed, and dressed by the time you anticipate you’ll be leaving for work. Starting this early will result in less stressed mornings when it really counts and prevent you from being late to your new job. Consider starting the kids in day care or school a week or two before your new job starts so that they can get settled before your new job starts, and you can be more comfortable with their new routine as well when you head off on your first day.
