Have you ever noticed how reality doesn’t match our expectations?
I have a plan on how my mornings should go, but some how that never happens.
This was my plan this morning:
5 am ~ semi-wake up to feed Baby Sid, then go back to sleep
6 am ~ get up, get coffee and pump
6:30 am ~ shower & get ready
7 am ~ feed Baby Sid again
7:20 am ~ turn van on to warm it up for the kidos
7:22 am ~ get Baby Sid changed and in his car seat ready to go
7:30 am ~ get Ian up and ready to go
7:40 am ~ calmly and efficiently load up kids to take to the sitters
Here is what REALLY happened:
4:40 am ~ Baby Sid wakes up and wants to eat
5:50 am ~ Ian goes to bathroom door crying “Mama, I need to see you a minute” not knowing my husband was the one in the shower.
5:52 am ~ Ian crawls into our bed, after I tell him where I was.
6 am ~ put Ian in his bed with a movie and something to drink
6:06 am ~ change Baby Sid and put him in the swing and hope he goes back to sleep
6:10 am ~ pump while drinking coffee (finally!)
6:15 am ~ Ian comes out of his bedroom wanting to ‘watch Tall Star Wars in da living room’
6:34 am ~ turn on Return of the Jedi
6:45 am ~ shower time
7 am ~ find Ian asleep on the couch, time for me to get ready
7:20 am ~ wake up Baby Sid and try to feed him
7:26 am ~ Baby Sid won’t eat take him to clean out his nose
7:31 am ~ try to feed Baby Sid again, still won’t eat
7:37 am ~ go out to start van
7:39 am ~ change Baby Sid, take some pictures because he is so cute and then put him in his car seat
7:42 am ~ run around the house in circles trying to locate everything we need and get my shoes on
7:55 am ~ put a sweatshirt on Ian and take the still sleeping boy out to car and buckle him in.
7:58 am ~ take Baby Sid out to car
7:50 am ~ make at least four trips back into the house to get things I had forgotten
8:02 am ~ leave for sitters house
Maybe Thursday will be easier….
Happy Reality Check!
