Mornings can be tough around here, especially during the school year. I am a fan of the snooze button. I’m also a master at convincing myself of anything when I’m half- asleep. Guys, I’m telling you, it’s crazy! So needless to say, I am not a morning person and I’ve passed this trait on to my kids. I’ve learned that a routine is absolutely essential if I want to get my school age kids on the bus, my preschooler where he needs to be and myself to work on time. Preferably all in a calm and happy manner.
