Morning Madness

Yesterday morning was a bit of a disaster!

My husband normally gets my son, Evan,  up and ready for school since I normally leave for work at 5am.  But yesterday was one of the random day that I had to work later so I decided I would get him up and off to school and allow my husband to sleep.

What a mess!!  I got Evan up than normal to make sure we had plenty of time.  Tried to get him to take his medicine { that was about 30 minutes of wasted time } but he wound up not taking it in the end.  He did change his clothes without a fight though { Yeah, one for mom } and went right to getting his bowl of cereal.  But by this time is was time to leave.  Fixed his hair and out the door we went.

Then when we were walking up to the school, poor Evan started crying.  We have been battling this for a while and he had gotten much better.  When I asked what was wrong he said he didn't want to be late.  I told him it was okay and kept heading towards the door, meanwhile he kept crying harder and harder.  Once inside he said he has never been that late before and then froze in his tracks outside his class.  He wouldn't go in!

After about 5 minutes of trying to convince him to go to his class, the teacher came out and told me to go ahead and go, that he would be fine.  But as I looked back she was trying to drag him into the room, still crying.

So this morning I am letting my husband take over.  Maybe Evan just needs his routine of Dad getting him ready for school.


  1. That just breaks my heart! I hope he gets over his anxiety of being late! Thanks for following my hop...returning the favor!

  7. Ugh, I can relate to the medicine issue! It takes me twenty minutes or so to convince my almost 6-year old to take medicine. You'd think I was asking him to give up his collection of video games or something! I'm following you from the Terrific Thursday hop.
