Doug is gone...what to do, what to do?

Hmmm, nothing TOO exciting has happened lately, so let me tell you how Kinsey is doing with kindergarten!!! She started 3 weeks ago and it has been the best thing ever. She loves here school, her teachers and her friends. What she does NOT love, however, is getting up early to get to school.

You see, my girl Kinsey is just like me. We like to sleep in. Nay, we LOVE to sleep in. That is why we get along so well!!! Her preschool started at 9:00, so she would have to get up at 8ish, and while that was kind of a struggle, it was manageable. Kindergarten starts at EIGHT O'CLOCK!!! Are you kiddin' me?? What kind of sociopath thought of this? So, that means that she has to be out of bed at 7 in order for the cobwebs to clear. She needs to shovel some food in her mouth and get dressed in 45 minutes. This, my friends, is quite a challenge.

Once she is at school, she is fine. But, I am discovering that not all kids have half of a poptart stuck to their face and syrup in their hair. (Most even have their hair BRUSHED? What? What kind of crazy person does that?) So, little by little, I am getting her used to her new schedule. It's not easy. AT. ALL!

Since Doug is out of town this weekend, I am faced with a morning tomorrow that SHOULD go as follows:
6:45-7:00 Lori up and dressed
7:00-7:30 Kids awake and herded downstairs (allow 30 minutes for tantrums, whining, fighting and other general drama)
7:30-7:45 Throw food at kids and make Kinsey's lunch
7:45-7:55 Dress both kids, attempt to wipe grime from Kinsey's face
7:55-8:00 Force both kids into car (allow time for fighting over the dvd player)
8:00-8:10 Haul ass to school before the 8:15 tardy bell rings
8:10-8:15 Sprint into school and throw Kinsey into her seat JUST as the bell rings

Now this, people, would be the ideal schedule. Please check back for the actual schedule. I assure you, it won't be pretty.
