I've reached the pinnacle of parenting...Early Morning Seminary. And yes...it is EARLY!!! Class starts at 6am which means I need to wake up my oldest at 5am to be ready. Are you serious? Yes, yes I am. As it turns out Corinna is excited about seminary and learning more about the gospel. She loves the fact she can study the scriptures every day...Huh?! I am excited for her. After class she walks to school and I might add, in case you were thinking I was a super awesome parent, she was not so thrilled I wouldn't pick her up and drive her to school. To be honest, her high school is less than a mile away and all the seminary kid walk together. It's exercise at a time of day where the heat doesn't drive you inside. Yes, the mean mom I am...insisted she try it out....for a semester.
Now, seminary wouldn't be a shock to my system but looking at my schedule it seems my sleeping will be done in shifts. This will give you the idea:
5am- Wake up Corinna
545am- drive her to seminary
6am- return home
630am- wake up the other two
745am- drive other two to school
815am return home
845am attempt to gain more sleep.
1100am- wake up...again
1130am- get showered and ready for the day
noon- eat breakfast & cook dinner for kids
100- organize my things for work & leave if I need to take bus to work
230pm- leave for work if hubby giving me a ride
330-midnight- work/ call kids on all breaks
1230am- clean up kitchen- I hate ants
5am- begin again!!!
I don't know how other working Moms have made it through, but my heart goes out to you all for what you do for your kids!!! I can't wait until Saturday to hang out with my kids...and sleep 8 hours in a row!!
