I spent the first hour of my morning trying to clean my kitchen, in between serving up breakfast and helping the kids get ready for school. In other words, I really should have titled this post What NOT To Do.
I was tired last night, and had already stayed up too late. After “mostly” cleaning up the kitchen and “mostly” putting groceries away, I threw in the towel for a hot bath and warm bed. (A warm bed I ended up lying awake in until after 1am, due to various children crying out, either awake or in their sleep, and needing me, or not, for 2 full hours. Was there a full moon last night?!)
Anywhooooo, it was a rough night. Waking up tired is one thing, but waking up tired and with a kitchen to clean first thing in the morning is a surefire way to get the day started with a heaping dose of Mom Grump.
Don’t do it.
