I have found myself stressing over a morning schedule for my children because school is about to start. Seriously stessing! I have even printed up several trial schedules and checklists. How OCD is that! What is wrong with us mom's? It hit me as I was frantically searching for yet another checklist/schedule online for afterschool that I only have two children. I AM THE MOTHER! I am making this complicated, not them. All they really need is a ---kids get up---don't whine---don't fight---get dressed---brush teeth and hair--- eat---get your crap and get in the car! There would be no morning drama if I didn't allow it. My children truly behave better when I approach things this no nonsence way and I know it. We have a 45 min drive to school to be silly and have fun.
