It's a concept that I frequently use, and yet, I didn't know the official name until I saw it mentioned yesterday on Facebook.
Helping the "Tomorrow Me".
For example, I know that tomorrow morning, I'm going to be super crazy trying to get everyone ready, and packing lunches takes a lot of time and effort - so I pack them the night before. I know that I will have a terrible time getting my makeup together, so I pack up the bag and put it in my purse to take out to the truck with me so I can do it while I'm waiting in the truck for the school doors to open so I can toss the kids out and drive off cackling wildly.
That sort of thing.
My kids are completely NOT DOWN with the whole concept. Why in the world would one actually WANT to do extra work? Why not wait until the last minute? Why lay out your B day folder, mouthpiece, Spanish project, music, pack up your instrument at night - there are more important, fun things to do. Computer games to play, friends to text, tv shows to watch.
My husband isn't really on board either. I talked to him about it last night, and he said that I'm the only one who does it, simply because I'm the only one who can see it needs to be done.
Do you do it? Do you help your tomorrow self out today? Or do you, like one of my kids said, ignore your tomorrow self in hopes that he/she won't appear?
