The kids have a rough time of it in the mornings.
I mean, I have absurdly high expectations.
Eat their breakfast...brush their teeth...the kind of things any kid couldn't possibly accomplish in one morning.
And most mornings, our interactions go like this:
"Jonathan, turn off the tv and eat your breakfast."
"Chloe, stop messing around and get dressed."
"Ok, but Jonathan's not getting dressed, either."
"Jonathan, get dressed."
Not exactly the warm fuzzy way to start your day.
So Chloe, my rule-abiding, list-loving, "I'll meet your expectations and raise them one" oldest child, has created some checklists for our morning routines.
Jonathan's Do Things Chart
Why doesn't Jonathan have to do his hair or pack his bag? I'm not going to delve into that mystery. I'm just glad he gets drest.
Speaking of getting dressed, why is it that my dry cleaner uses bags circa: 1967?
Cuddly and soft as a kitten...now, that's soft!
