So, things here at the ranch this week are kicking off as usual...Wife heads to work early to start the week, so I'm on Daddy duty to get kids up and to school on time, dressed and properly cleaned.
By dressed, I mean clean clothes. They may not match, but they are clean, clothed for the weather and that's a good start in my book.
We get teeth brushed and hair combed... and maybe wash off our faces if Daddy remembers. Breath good, check. Dried toothpaste on face, maybe.
Things that irk me:
Kids that have been doing the school routine for 3+ years, but still sit around blankly staring at you when you're expecting that maybe this once, they will instinctively know to eat, brush teeth, get dressed, comb hair, put shoes on, jackets or coats on and get backpack.
Having to micromanage kids on a routine that should be second nature.
Having to remind youngest to throw pullups away from the night instead of throwing it in the middle of the living room.
Having to ask kids to pick up toys out of common areas, only to have them get a new toy and drop it in the same place after getting bored with new toy after 1 minute.
Having to ask kids to pick up jammies instead of chucking them where they fall after changing clothes.
Having to pick up blankets drug down to living room that no one uses and toss wherever after they are done with them.
Don't get me wrong, I LOVE the kids to pieces. But... c'mon man.
Things that don't irk me:
The hugs as the kids run off to school.
