Things can get a little busy.
I assume that is true for almost everyone.
Before I reached the I-am-going-to-never-get-this-baby-out part of my pregnancy, I was rather organized. But at 9 months pregnant I thought of getting things prepared ahead of time, but then I thought of sleeping, and sleep won.
And just for the record, sleep usually always wins. Sleep is wonderful. Sleep is a gift. Sleep is my friend.
(a friend that has basically abandoned me right now, but that's not the point.)
The patience issue I'm having could be helped if I get back in gear and get back to getting things ready the night before. If I don't get things ready ahead of time, things get a little wild in the morning, clothes can not be found, I'm flustered, and kids are running around in their underwear 2 minutes before we need to leave the house.
And people wonder why we're always late.
So I lay their clothes out the night before...in birth order. I know, I can't help myself, I always organize the kids in the order they arrived. Call me crazy if you must.
The living room becomes a fitting room - just like the ones in the store, only much bigger and with better lighting. Oh, and to date, I've never been escorted out of this one, so that's a plus.
I fill cups and pack Ella's lunch - her strawberries, sandwich, and yogurt are ready to just be popped into her lunchbox.
So we're off for the morning, and it did indeed go smoother than in weeks past!
And now, I will reward myself with a Mocha Frappuccino Light. Just saying it makes me smile.
Have a great Friday, friends!!
