Can ANYONE hear me?

The ENTIRE holiday the children were up and about before 6 am. And TODAY, the day they HAVE to get up on time, they are mad at ME for dragging them out of bed at 7am???


Fiancé is downstairs preparing lunchboxes, while I run around like a headless chicken. Yelling orders no one listens to. Especially youngest is excellent in ignoring EVERYTHING I say lately. The oldest two (plus fiancé) are pretty good at it as well, but she beats them big time.

Hmmm… now I think about it I can see a pattern… in this home no one listens to me… Could it be ME…? NO.

Before 8am all children are ready to go, which is a true miracle. It is even too early to leave yet. Luckily youngest pees her pants at the last moment.
