In response to the Daily Prompt:
This is a true story…
Our mornings are rather hectic. The hectic-ness is due to traffic. I have worked out the time I have to leave home in order to get the kids to school on time. What people don’t seem to understand though is that if the kiddies and I leave 5 minutes later than the normal time we will be stuck in traffic that will make the children a half an hour late for school. So now we leave very early, they get to school quite early but that is the only way it can be done.
Yesterday morning my alarm rang but I was so tired I stretched out my hand and pressed the “NON snooze” button and just went back to sleep again. Thank heavens middle daughter has her own alarm and I woke up from the sounds of her drawing her curtains.
I of course jumped up and charged around the place like a crazy fool trying to get myself organised in order to get little one dressed and packed for school.
So, eventually we, meaning me and little one, got in the car and waited and waited for the one who was up first. I sighed in frustration, not wanting to get stuck in traffic. Just then “I heard the car door slam, and immediately looked at the clock…” Thank goodness I thought, we will make it in time and we did :)
