The theme from Tara for The Gallery this week is: Morning.
Mornings in our house are fairly chaotic, as I’m sure they are in most homes!
This morning was busier than most, although not untypical :)
My husband had an early meeting, so left the house before 5am. I managed to get another hours sleep, but actually got up when the alarm went off at 6am (I’m a big fan of the snooze button!). I needed to get myself organised before the wee girl woke – generally she’s our real alarm call in the mornings, jumping up and calling for us by 6.30am.
The next hour so passed in a blur of getting dressed; having breakfast (scrambled eggs for two, toast and Nutella for one…); brushing teeth; finding shoes; finding library books; sorting out money for the book fair; organising lunches; putting coats on; fighting with hats and gloves (which in the case of the wee girl, stayed on for about a minute…)! Until, at last we ran out of the door, late as always…
We meet several families for our walk to school, the children either run or dawdle, there is no in between! This morning was a dawdle day…
We dropped the 7yo at his school for line up, which starts at 8.05am. We then headed to the 4yo’s preschool, where he starts at 8.25am! I am lucky that it is a lovely walk for my 1.5 mile round trip, although it’s not so fun when it rains, and I might admit defeat on those days and drive!
This morning was a rush because the wee girl and I had our music class at 9am, so it was a case of run home, jump in the car, get to music with a minute to spare! She had a great time as always, banging drums, singing songs, shaking maracas and playing with scarves :)
I then checked my phone for messages to discover that the 4yo had been sick and I had to go and pick him up… Back in the car, back to preschool, pick up boy!
At last, I made it home, again; put the kettle on, again; organised snacks and Curious George (for completely selfish reasons – I need to sit down!); and made a mug of tea – at last! – which I am now drinking as I type. It has just gone 12.00, the morning is over.
So, how was your morning?!
