I just got the kids out the door to catch the school bus and it was a bit of a crazy morning. Potato harvest started today so Tyler had to be out the door at 6am for a meeting. This means I had to be up at 5:30 to get him out the door since he doesn't seem to be able to get up on time on his own, despite his incredibly annoying alarm going off every 15 minutes. He left, then I had a few minutes of peace before I had to get the kids up. We ran out of milk, bread and eggs, so the kids got yogurt and instant oatmeal (which they refused to eat) for breakfast. I managed to do one child's hair before the dog, who had been bugging me to go outside while I was doing hair, pooped on the carpet. Whoops-my bad! I got that cleaned up and went to take the poop outside, when I noticed that one of the rabbits was wheezing like crazy. No time to deal with it right that second, so I went back in to finish getting kids ready. Unfortunately, the bus came early, so the kids ran out the door in the following state:
- Ethan had yogurt all over his face, but he did have his backpack which had been missing for most of last week. We finally found it on Saturday-it had been tucked into the pantry cupboard. Why, I don't know.
- Lily left with her hair unbrushed and wearing an interesting ensemble. She put on a fancy black shirt that had sparkles on it. She wanted to wear it with jean shorts, but I said it looked weird, and she needed to wear pants. She went and put on white leggings, but the school doesn't let them wear leggings without something over it, so I told her to go get jeans. She came back with brown jean capris, which looked funny with the shirt. I told her to either change her shirt or her pants, but then the bus came, so she left with her black, sparkly shirt, brown capris and gray dress shoes. Hey, at least she had clothes on and her backpack!
- Morgan was actually dressed appropriately and had her backpack, but she had to take her shoes and put them on on the bus.
- Kylee's backpack is now missing. But her hair was brushed and she was dressed, although she too had to put her shoes on on the bus.
P.S. Trysta had the nastiest poopy diaper this morning. I was gagging and my eyes were watering.
