A Day in the Morning Life - Volume 2
A lot has changed since I wrote volume 1. This day started at 3:30 A.M. I hear a thump. I figure it's the middle child rolling over into the wall again. "Hmm. What's that smell? Popcorn?" That can only mean one thing...the oldest is up. I go to his bedroom and he has a bag a popcorn and his PlayStation is on. "What are you doing?" "I was hungry." "Turn off the game and go to bed." More on this later. Back to bed I go. I gotta be at work by 8. I drag myself out of bed at 7:20. I have never been a morning person but this morning is unusally tough. I shower, shave and etc.. 7:34 Gotta leave before 7:45. Turn on the iron. The company has decided that khakis are now acceptable. I iron the khakis and lay them aside. I look for an "a-shirt" aka "wife beater". I head to the laundry room. There they are at the bottom of the dirty pile. Okay plan B. Find a plain T. Hmm. Nope. Nope. Nope. Ahh. Well it's black under black oh well. Back to the pants. I put them on and they have no button. 7:42. Grab a black pair of pants and put them on. (no iron) I wake the boys. The oldest needs is meds. "What's this blanket doing by the door?" As I'm asking, I realize the answer. It was rolled and placed in front of the door to hide the light of the late night video game playing. 7:45 I'm gonna be late. I text my boss and co-worker and let them know. I nuke some left eggs and bacon and make some coffee. The oldest takes ADHD meds. He is now on a patch. I recommend it for your parents of ADD/ADHD kids. He is struggling to put it on. I sit my breakfast down to help. As I reach to help, I knock my bacon and eggs onto the floor. ARGHHHHH. I help him, then scrape my breakfast off the floor and back into the bowl. I grab my lunch, coffee and breakfast kiss the little one bye and off to work I go. Yes, I ate the eggs and bacon. I clock in at 8:08.
