This pretty much sums up our week thus far.
A three day testing of just how early we are required to awake in order to get two fully dressed children, one ragamuffin two year old and one fashion focused mama out of the house just in time to line up at 7:40am in front of the school.
Yep. 7:40 a.m. You read that right.
I actually roll over and wake up God before the kids.
Today, we finally made it but not because I woke up at 6 a.m. when my alarm went off. We were on time because I woke up at 6:20 a.m. and barked out orders my drill sergeant father would have been proud of. I didn’t call anyone maggot though. I had to draw the line somewhere.
We made it! In the end, Isaiah did request less “NOWs!”at the end s of my sentences and more “pleases”. I didn’t make any promises.
First, we get the routine down that makes us punctual. Next, we will add niceties. :)
