I could have easily stayed in bed.
I shower, put coffee on, put make-up on and then I go and get Molly. This is when it gets fun...
Somewhere between 6.30 and 7.25 my household enters a void of time suckage where literally nothing is achieved and the yelling starts. I'm yelling, Mushroom's yelling, Molly's yelling. Juffin's taking his sweet arse time doing his hair or whatever and yelling at Molly to get out of the wet shower stall. Of course I have a full face of make up on and a nightie, because, children.
Between 7.25 and 7.32 there is actual progress and we usually manage to get out the door, fully clothed, children fed, and 15000 bags in tow.
I generally run back because I've forgotten important things like breast pump or coffee.
Today the Mushroom decided to drag his backpack out the door, despite me telling him repeatedly to stop dragging his backpack, and the screen door slammed back on his foot and grazed his heel.
Notice how I used the word grazed.
Because it was a graze.
Mushroom thought his foot had been removed.
Cue hysterical screaming and over the top drama with full body shaking, tears and screaming at high pitch.
At 7.30 in the morning.
And the oscar goes to.....
I am the mean Mummy who ACTUALLY doesn't have time for that bullshit.
Like no time. We're already late, We're now on the wrong side of 7.35 and time is moving forward at a rapid rate.
I give him a cuddle, make sure there's no blood and then carry on.
Obviously I have not given him enough attention because it's ongoing for OVER 10 MINUTES.
Juffin is cuddling him, blah blah blah. I tell him to stop it and tell Mushroom to cut it out. I mean honestly, I'm a bitch. That much is clear.
By the time I get to daycare drop off it's already 7.50. I'm so late for work. I send a message saying that I'll be 15 minutes late, because, again, children.
I carry the 15000 bags and the smallest child to the door. Mushroom is mucking about with his bag and jumper (it's 22c and apparently that warrants wearing a jumper, don't even get me started) Molly smells suspiciously like poo.
I am already late so we do the check in thing and then I change her bum myself. Because I feel like it's weird to watch someone else change your child's bum. Unless it's their other parent.
Kiss, cuddle, bye bye. Over to the pre-prep room. lunch sorted, bag in locker, drink bottle out, hat on, sign the book, walk over to toddler room.. kiss kiss cuddle cuddle, bye bye...
I race back to the car and slump into the drivers seat. It's 8.04.
Can I go home now?!
