Hmmm. Maybe I should have gotten these kids back into an early wake up schedule before the first day of school.
Nah, they just would have spent the last few days of summer cranky.
Yes, you have to get up. You, MOM- because you have to wake up the kids.
What do you mean you didn’t eat breakfast yet? I sent you downstairs 15 minutes ago to do that.
I wish all my kids wore uniforms. That would really make life easier.
Why is it such a pain to find socks and shoes in the morning? Even setting them out the night before doesn’t help. I think there are sock elves that come steal them.
BRUSH YOUR TEETH.
It’s the same routine every morning, why can’t you just brush your teeth?!?
Seriously, NOW you hand me these forms that I need to fill out? Not yesterday, when I asked you if you had anything you needed to give me?!?
I’m already over packing lunches.
And huh, maybe I should have actually bought the kids new lunchboxes because these are a little more beat up than I thought. Oh, well, too late now.
We’re leaving in 5 minutes, so make sure you’re completely ready to walk out the door.
That means BE READY.
Hair. You need to fix your hair or let me fix it.
Okay, fine, if you don’t care, I don’t care.
In the car. Let’s go.
Seat belts, yes, seat belts every time you get in the car.
Sure, go back inside for whatever it is you forgot. Sigh.
Alright, let’s go…finally.
Learning a new drop off system is such a pain. This should be common sense, people!
The kids are in school, I should be able to get so much done.
I’ll go to the gym and clean the whole house top to bottom, plus get all my work done.
Hours pass and the work mostly gets done, one load of laundry started, and half of one room picked up.
Already time to pick up the kids.
Drop off seems easy compared to pick up.
WHY does it have to be like this?
Back home, do your homework.
Yes, you can have a snack, but dinner is soon, so stop trying to eat the entire contents of our pantry.
Soccer practice, dance class, running…
Five seconds later, it’s time to get ready for bed.
Yes, you need a shower.
OMG, GO TO BED.
Dang, this is tiring.
I miss summer already.
