you know those mornings when:

  • you’ve got 4 kids instead of 2 (no, not gone and had 2 babies overnight or anything daft…! my niece and nephew are over having breakfast with us).  and all the kids want to do is fall out.  fall out over the tv, that he got his hot chocolate before him, that he is leaning a bit too much in front of the tv…yadda yadda yadda…
  • alf still kicks off because he still has to brush his teeth and wash his face…even though this has been the case for the last 5 FRICKIN’ years…twice a FRICKIN’ day!…
  • robb realises he’s got a cross country race today…and that his trainers he has got in school don’t actually fit him…so the really old scrappy ones will have to do…and that the coat he’s wearing isn’t suitable (and you’re in the car by now!)…so he goes back into the house to get his waterproof coat…
  • so you might as well get out too and get your breakfast out of the toaster…
  • then you spot the card and present that needs wrapping for the party alf’s got after school TODAY, so you wrap the present and wait VERY PATIENTLY as alf write’s the card…v.e.r.y. s.l.o.w.l.y…
  • but once you’re back in the car with your toast the two in the back have taken a fancy to it, so you hand them over your breakfast…
  • you’re just about to leave the school and the hype over birthday boy and his party has caused a huge pile up on the school playground, so you see to alf and tell him that that small bump on his head is not bleeding and that he will live…
  • you’re finally on your way to work when you look in the rear view mirror to see that your nephew is still sat in the back of the car and you totally forgot to drop him off at naini’s…

 so, yeah, those mornings? you know them? you do?! please, please tell me you do.
