So I mentioned last week that I love my new schedule. I have formalized a plan that I try to stick to about how our day pans out. I don't really get to sleep any later than I would on a day I have to go to work for several reasons. When TJ is at the house, you have to stand over top of him to make sure he brushes his teeth, washes his face and gets dressed in the 45 minutes we give him before he has to walk out the door for school. And yes, it takes him all 45 minutes to do those 3 things. Seriously. And if you do not stand over top of him, he will stare at himself in the mirror, with the water running, not moving for at least 20 of those 45 minutes. No joke. Very frustrating start to the mornings. When TJ is not at the house, I still wake up when Ed goes in and out of the bathroom. Over and over again. And over again. And then usually by the time he finally leaves the house and it's quiet, Deuce wakes up right as I start to fall back asleep.
So... We get up and eat breakfast. For Deuce, that's usually an entire package of fruit & cream oatmeal, yogurt & bananas or applesauce. Then we take a bath/shower, brush our teeth and get ready for the day.
