This morning I dropped him off without any trouble. I am out of practice. It was such a rush!
I was up early, doing my usual thing. Then I decide to laundry, water the plants (with the recycled laundry water). Then I find Honeybear’s lunch bag had not been emptied the night before so I had to wash juice bottles and boxes. Quickly throw together the lunch and get us out the door (while tracking down the errant kitten).
We get in the car, for me to see Honeybear is holding his hand…something not right. I find out the cat scratched him. I then have to get him back out his seat, into the house…clean up the scratches, antihistamine cream and plasters (thankfully I still had Pluto plasters floating at the top of the box). All that meant I was ten minutes late. THE TRAFFIC!!!!
There was just about no parking inside the school, getting back out was a nightmare, and then there was a traffic incident (with about 5 tow trucks blocking three lanes). I managed to make it to the office just after eight (so I was late which is a big deal here).
Monday is my turn again and I will be sure to be better organised.
There is the one Mom who is super well put together. Perfect sexy body, clothes and three gorgeous kids. She drops them off wearing her stilettos too. This morning there she was, in the parking lot, trying to get her 5 year old to co-operate, put on his shoes and walk to class. Then she gets him going, to find she is missing a lunch bag. I felt for her, because hers looked much worse than my one five year old who needed plasters. Even the best mommies have crazy mornings. I am so glad I only have to do it every second morning.
I am sure it will be less crazy next week. All the schools would have settled down.
