5. Dangle a carrot. It was impossible to get my son motivated to get ready for school in the morning, until we started leaving early enough to play on the playground or have a scooter ride before the start of school. Now (most days, anyway) all it takes is a reminder about the extra playtime to get him to cooperate. And if you’re the one who has trouble getting out the door on time, find a treat worth leaving the house early for, whether that’s a refreshing walk by the water or a cup of coffee at your favorite place.
Colorful and intricately patterned cement tile makes this narrow hallway mudroom stand out. Old-style details — the pocket door, simple pegged clothes rack and picture-frame wainscoting — add to the charm.
