Now that school is back in full swing (our second week), the dreaded morning scuffle has also returned.
I was hoping a more streamlined ritual would fall into place, but alas it’s business as usual.
You see, I have one child who does everything he’s supposed to, when he’s supposed to do it. I have another child who couldn’t be bothered with the type of work and effort it takes to get to school on time.
It’s time to get up…..”I can’t”…….It’s time for breakfast…..”I’m busy”….Are you dressed…teeth brushed…hair combed….shoes on…..”no”.
It makes me crazy. I feel like I’ve tried everything to help facilitate the morning madness but nothing seems to light a fire under his behind.
Funny thing is, he loves school and can’t wait to arrive. He just doesn’t seem to understand why he should be in a hurry This leaves him, as well as me frustrated beyond belief.
He gets plenty of sleep, bedtime is at 8:30 PM, his clothes are ready, backpack is packed.
Anyone have any advice or solutions that worked for them because when we pulled up to school five minutes late this morning and he blurted out, “Why are we late”….my head almost exploded.
