Mondays are a little dreaded in my house. The song just another manic Monday almost always rings true for me. Thankfully yesterday wasn’t nearly as bad as some I’ve experienced. Monday means it’s time for school which is a love hate thing for my kids. Here’s how yesterday went down.
My alarm went off at 6:15am and I very slowly dragged myself from bed. First things first, the making of the coffee. I don’t do anything until that is done. Then I woke up baby girl. She is not a fan of mornings so she takes a little bit longer. I went in to wake her up, she lays back down so I went into wake the boys up. My oldest woke up immediately with huge tired eyes and literally rolled out of bed. My youngest didn’t open his eyes so I picked him up and carried him out. When I sat him down on the couch he then finally opened his eyes. Then I went back to get my daughter and carried her out into the living room.
From there it’s on to breakfast time. I
sipped gulped my coffee while I got the kiddos some breakfast. Then they/we got dressed. By now it’s time to f ight brush their teeth. I don’t know why at ages four, five and eight that it is still a struggle but the kids do not like to brush their teeth. Sometimes it is so bad that it results in one or two, maybe even three full blown meltdowns. It may be my least favorite part of the day.
By 7:30 were out the door and on our way to school We all walk in together and my oldest goes off to class by himself while I walked the two littles to class. We give our kisses, hugs and goodbyes then I come home to silence! Funny thing as I am drinking my coffee and working all I want to do is climb back into bed. Too bad by this time I am fully awake and couldn’t fall back asleep if I was given anesthesia.
While the kids are in school it’s a pretty quite time. My youngest gets out at 10:30 so quiet time doesn’t last for long. Pick him up, come home, make lunch. That’s our routine. Yesterday I had to work though so instead of doing random miscellaneous things I got ready for work. Oh yeah I forgot to mention I got a job! Happy joy joy…sort of. Mixed emotions there but I wont go into that now.
So while I worked until 7 the hubs watched the kids. I got home to a bunch of craziness that I wont speak of and bore you all with. Short story….I got home, fed the kids and put them to bed. The end.
So that was my Monday. Not as hectic as most which I will gladly take! Oh yes and tomorrow I should *hopefully* have more then a whopping two pictures.
