“Wake up, little loves, it’s time to get ready for school”
Check my watch – got plenty of time.
Drag the kids out of bed, get the breakfast ready, walk the dog, dress the kids, dress myself, check my watch….
“Ten minutes till we have to be in the car!!!”
“Come on, we are going to be late!”
“In the car, in the car, lets go, lets go!”
I turned to my hubby and laughed as I said, “And just like that I have turned into my mum!”
I vividly remember the hectic morning routine as a child getting ready for school, and my mum hollering the count down till it was time to get into the car!
AAAhhh the memories
We WERE late that first morning, but luckily it was just for Preschool orientation, and it was only 5 minutes! And I even built in a window of time for the dreaded “double meltdown” which thankfully didn’t happen on this morning.
This is ONLY preschool – guess I am going to be like this for another 18 years or something! Yaaaawn! The thought of that just makes me tired.
Guess I am going to have to streamline the morning routine.
Got any tricks out there for getting out the door for school on time?
