This is the one thing that I just can’t get properly organized. The one time of the day that has me stressed out. The one routine that just seems to be without routine.
I know my boys are still small. I know that things won’t run like a well oiled machine but oh. my. word. they have the ability to drive me to the edge of insanity some mornings!
Like today. I had to tell them a zillion times to get dressed. I got out of the bathroom to find both of them sitting on my bed (in the middle of winter) with only their underpants….huh? Then I ask Jay to put on his socks, just to find him playing with cards on his bed. Begging them to brush their teeth. Comb there hair. Over and over and over again.
I got to work my folks home extremely frustrated, when my mom said I shouldn’t. It is my duty to make sure they get to school on time. That they are still small and I need to get them ready. That I should understand that they are still small and need help. Yes. I agree that I can’t just wake them up and then without warning tell them to get into the car to leave for school. However, ALL they have to do is get dressed, brush their teeth and comb their hair. Breakfast is already dished up. Bags packed. They have 45 minutes to do just that…dress, teeth, hair. 45 minutes!
Funny how they can get ready in 5 minutes if I tell them we are going somewhere fun tough!
