Wasn't that what Debbie Reynolds sang in Singing in the Rain? Our morning routine isn't always that perky and peppy, but we muddle through.
A. usually wakes up happy and raring to go. Me, not so much. Once A. does her morning routine (play, potty, play, brush teeth, flip through some books, get dressed, dawdle, make her bed), which can take anywhere from 10-30+ minutes, punctuated by my gentle reminders softly whispered up the stairs (oh how I kid!), she eats a quick breakfast.
Yes, she still eats at the kitchen counter standing on her little step stool. It works for us and she doesn't seem to mind. Sadie doesn't mind either because there is always the chance A. will drop something.
I usually have one cup of coffee before taking her to school, and oh my, it is DELICIOUS. Look how happy I am:
This week my morning outfit has consisted of the random t-shirt that I slept in, covered up by a baggy sweatshirt, and jeans. See?
Then it was time to grab my keys, wallet, A.'s backpack and dash to school.
