Getting the boys out the door in the morning...

... usually takes some amount of yelling and chaos :)

Ok, granted I could probably be a little more organized and could get up earlier to get more done, but I also think that they could do more to get themselves ready :)

Rich takes care of lunches for me before he leaves, which means I'm in charge of dressing, feeding, and making sure we all have everything we need to get out the door. You would think that they could dress themselves, but in the morning, I get "Mom, you didn't get out my clothes for me yet." And my response is usually, you are big enough to get them yourselves." (Of course, this is followed by the, "But you got Max's for him.") Many a time, I have told the boys that life isn't always fair and you will not always be equal with your brothers!!

But even before we get to that point, there is the "Why do we have to go to school, I hate school." Which then gets the response of, "Right now school is your jog, you have to go. Make sure that you get a job that you love when you get older!"

Like I've posted before, sometimes they do try, especially Sammy, to do what needs to be done, but mornings like this one, just drive me crazy because when a child realizes they didn't finish homework and then gets exasperated with me like its my fault, I get a little annoyed and end up yelling at the little things. Not how I want to start my day :(

Luckily, today was a gym morning, so I could go work off that frustration :)
