"Whatever can go wrong will go wrong."
There are two things that I am absolutely sure of by being a mother of 4 small children. #1 I will have to do at least 15 loads of laundry every week . #2 If we are running late to the bus stop in the morning one or both twins will have a dirty diaper. Never fails.
The other morning I was in ultra-frantic mode. Running late....again. Trying to get 4 kids dressed, fed and out the door in a timely manner. Like clockwork both girls left a nice deposit for me in their diapers just as we were trying to load up in the van. I got aggravated and marched the kids back in the house.
Zander (5) noticed my frustration and said, "It's ok Momma. They just had to go poop. It's ok if I miss the bus, you can just drop me off at school." How is a five year old so much wiser than a 31 year old?? It isn't a big deal. Murphy's law is true if you believe it...but my goal is to not give in the that frame of mind anymore. Wish me luck!
In a perfect world, I would get up 2 hours before my kids. Take a shower, do a little yoga and meditation drink a cup of coffee with my husband before seeing him off to work. Be totally awake and centered before diving head first into mommy-mode. But that would put me at getting up at 5 am....ugh. Do you get up earlier than your children? If so when and why? I totally want to try it, but the truth is I'm lazy in the mornings and kind of a night owl.
