I don't like for my son to feel rushed. So we wake up very early (but go to bed equally very early), snuggle in bed for a while before actually crawling out of bed, play in the playroom for a little while, then I assist him getting dressed in the playroom. This way no pressure and he can take his time. Brush teeth, sit at the breakfast table, talk and tell jokes. Then we get into the car and I take him to school. We do the car line and someone comes to take him out of his seat and escort him to his class. I don't want him to be rushed and the few times we were turned into awful mornings and even more stressful school day for him. So my key to success is packing the night before, putting what I can in my car, make lunch the night before, and then have a low impact non rush morning. Snuggling in the morning helps a tons. Sets the tone for the day and gives us time to tell him what a great kid he is.
