School's in Session

{UPDATE: this is simply a glance into my morning, the Mr. is busy wrangling the other two, packing the school lunch, and 9 times out of 10 he does breakfast. #teamworkforthewin}

Here's a little glimpse of what our mornings should look like (what I've planned out in my head):

  • Mom wakes up at 6:30 to start breakfast and pumps if necessary
  • Mom gets in the shower and gets ready
  • G wakes up at 7
  • G eats breakfast and gets dressed
  • G packs her backpack and gets shoes on 
  • G brushes her teeth
  • Mom and G out the door at 7:40

Here's a little glimpse of what it actually looks like:
  • Mom's alarm goes off at 6:30am
  • Mom presses snooze about 4 times and doesn't even realize it
  • Panics as she wakes up at 7am, late, again
  • Scrambles to get something on the table for breakfast and takes the worlds fastest shower, or dry shampoo to the rescue!
  • Curses the pump - why can't it go faster?
  • Tries to get ready as quietly as possible without waking up the baby (always seems to manage to wake up the baby)
  • Argues about breakfast with G for at least 10 minutes
  • G gets dressed (God bless uniforms!)
  • Tries to remember if she already brushed her teeth or not?
  • Says a little prayer that G has all her hw and lunch in her bag
  • out the door at 7:40, but has to come back home to finish getting herself ready
  • #nailedit

Can't wait until we have to get TWO kiddos ready next year! Not. 

I wish I was a morning person. {Side note: I could use the excuse of having a 2 month old, and being up in the middle of the night, but the same thing happened last year too, so..}
