Since I have 2 kids in two different schools this is what I do: I have several alarms set on my phone
1) a wake up alarm
2) a warning alarm that I hit snooze on. We need to be headed to the car by the time snooze alarm goes off (10 minutes from the warning)
3) an alarm to load up to go to #2 dd's school
4) alarm to pick up dd 2( she's pre school and goes only 3 hours
5) alarm to go pick up dd1. I set it just a little early do I can hit snooze if I'm in the middle of a cleaning project

What's nice is I can customize the alarm name so it say 'get Dd1 from school', ect.

My mom use to make a bunch of breakfast burritos, wrap them up and stick them in the fridge. Then in the mornings, just warm one up.
