I have had yet another of those mornings where I feel I am pushing up hill.....no matter what time we get up & get going, no matter how organised I get before hand I still find myself tearing my hair out at my son, raising my voice & losing the plot - BEFORE WE GET TO SCHOOL!
I am not a morning person & struggle to get out of bed but after a few minutes I can usually warm into the day. I make myself a coffee, get breakfast sorted, finalise school lunch, check all Maxie's homework is in his homework bag, I know Max cannot handle a whole list of instructions at once so I split them up into bite sized chunks. We have a list on the fridge with pictures of what he needs to do to get ready BUT I feel like I am not doing it right.
Every morning I am ending up exasperated & sick of it, I want to yell & scream & its not even 9am!!! We seem to be continually late and I wonder how on earth other parents do it with such ease - AND I ONLY HAVE 1 CHILD TO MANAGE!!!!!!!!
Its bothering me because more often than not I pull back into our driveway & burst into tears feeling like the WORST mother in the world! I am really starting to hate myself & the way I don't seem to manage this little task properly.....
Thank goodness holidays are around the corner.....& just as well I don't have to head on to work as I would be an absolute mess!!
Any thoughts or suggestions would be most gratefully appreciated,
