Today was the first of several supremely tricky mornings where there isn't just a home parent and a work parent. Instead, we both need to go to work. Bah. Ben still needed to work from home, though, this morning, so it wasn't like I had help really getting the kids off to school. As the normal at-home Friday parent, I don't mind the kid rush usually because I can clean up the house and exercise after they go to school. That meant that today, I was up before 5:30 and on the elliptical by 5:45. I was dressed by 7 when the kids came up for breakfast, and I even got Harry off to the bus by 6:45. It was exhausting!
And now I am at work with no plans to be home before Dorothy is done with school and a TON of errands to cram into my post work pre-gymnastics time. Because did I mention we have 20 kindergarteners coming over on Sunday for Cooper's bday party? GAH.
Another pic of Dorothy before I ruined her life by telling her that we were a month early for dance class.
