I am NOT a morning person. I’ll get up and do what’s needed. But don’t expect cheerfulness or any sounds of joy from my section. I’m a quiet on purpose. Because I don’t want my un-cheerful attitude to leak out of my mouth.
However more often than not my grump attitude gets the best of me. Because I have yet to discover how to get my children to school without speaking to them.
My children have no sense of urgency. Or even an internal clock that tells them hey it’s been twenty minutes since your Mom woke you up and your still in your pajamas. Maybe you should think about getting dressed. Eat breakfast? Comb your hair? Anything? Keep playing you say? Ah yes, wise choice. That’s sure to bring out the best in your Mom’s un-morning attitude.
So instead I feel like a walking clock that bellows out how much time my children are wasting. I get so sick of saying the same thing Monday through Friday. (Sunday too because church starts at 9 am) Get dressed, stop playing. Eat breakfast and leave the cat alone. Are you ready for school? No? Then why are you playing on the computer?
What should I do? What can I change? How can I get my children off to school without making their mornings horrible, but not be late every single day?
Utterly tired of being the time police.
