If you know me, you know I’m often running late. I really don’t mean to be rude, I’m just optimistic about how much time I have.
This was not always the case! Before having children, getting to a destination on time was never an issue. But my household comprises 2 working parents, a 4 year old and nearly-2-year-old. I’d like to say that our biggest challenge is getting all of us on time to 4 different locations during the work/school week. The fact is, getting ANYWHERE on time is a tremendous feat!
It seems like no amount of pre-planning or waking up earlier gets us out of the house any quicker. Someone invariably forgets a mandatory stuffed animal, leaves the diaper bag inside, needs to use the bathroom, can’t find the other shoe, spills yogurt on their shirt, etc., eating up all the extra minutes I padded into the departure plan.
My apologies in advance for being late!
How do you handle the morning rush without blowing a gasket?
