When I hear my alarm clock go off in the morning… I immediately groan. How is it possibly another day again? Didn’t I JUST close my eyes? Can I afford another 15 minutes or so to hide from the endless list of responsibilities today? It’s leg day at the gym today, yay! Oh shoot, was I supposed to pack a sack lunch for Andrews field trip today… did I even turn the field trip slip in?
These are just the thoughts that run through my mind BEFORE I talk myself out of the bed. The real chaos begins when I’m actually up, and tasked to try and get the kids together in a timely fashion. While I dream of nice and orderly family meals around the table where we discuss our plans… that’s not typically the morning scene at our house.
Instead, it usually consist of me herding the kids and threatening politely urging them to hurry up and get ready before they’re late for school. I’m only slightly ashamed to admit that our family van likely sees more meals that the kitchen table… we’re just that busy!
What I DON’T have time for is accidents and messes. You know, the ones that conveniently happen on the most important days. Like sticky remnants of breakfast left on car seats and door handles, or the inevitable quick clean up needed after a spill on picture day! Yeah, I don’t have time for all of that.
That’s why, when I’m at Walmart picking up our quick snacks for on the go (Pepperidge Farm Goldfish Crackers are the kids favorites), I make sure to grab a pack of Wet Ones Singles while I’m at it. While I still don’t like getting up in the mornings, these two essentials sure make the day run a lot smoother after I do!
What’s your secret for tackling a busy day?
