Typically Sam wakes up around 6:30am so DH and I get up, make coffee, Sam gets his breakfast and then we have to wake Sydney up around 7ish, that is typically no fun at all, she is not a morning person if she happens to wake up on her own it makes for a much better morning. After she is up she eats, then everyone gets dressed, teeth brushed and out the door around 7:45ish. DH currently does daycare dropoff. Once the New Year rolls around my work hrs are changing so I won't be starting work until 8:30 which means I will be doing drop off but it will give us a bit of extra time in the mornings which will be nice and not feel as rushed.
I get up at 615 to get in the shower & get ready. DH gets Jax up around the same time and feeds Jaxon and gets him dress. Then he proceed to lay on the couch while I get the diaper bag ready, brush jaxon's teeth (which has become a nightmare this past week) and finish getting him ready, ie socks, shoes, jacket... and go drop him off at school. Okay I might be a little bitter that DH gets to lay around all morning...
I get up at 6:30ish and talk to hubby online while I get ready for work. then I get nattie up around 7:10-7:15, make the bed get nattie dressed and we leave (she eats breakfast at daycare - it puts me getting to work about 20 or so min early but makes drop off much easier becasue as soon as they give her food she stops crying - lol).
I'm up at 6:15, shower, get dressed. DH is up at about 6:45. Noelle is up somewhere between 6:30 and 7-ish. The older kids are up at 6:30 for Genna and 7:00 for Stephen. DH and Genna leave the house at 7:40. Three days a week Noelle, Stephen and I leave the house at about 8:30, drop Noelle at day care, Stephen at school then I'm at work by 9. The other two days we leave at 8:15, drop Noelle off at her Great-Aunt's house, drive back home to take Stephen to school and I am at work by 9. The time between when I am ready and when we leave I spend folding diapers, signing school papers and picking up the house.
That will all change after the first of the year when I have to be in the office by 8:30, everything will get bumped to about 40 minutes earlier. I am not looking forward to that at all.
To the Amazing Kelly: Thank you once again!! Amazing only begins to cover it.
Tuesdays are the hardest here. On Tuesday I can go to work whenever I want so of course on Mondays I stay up too late and don't want to get out of bed in the morning when Harleigh wakes up. And then its a rush to get showered and dressed and get Harleigh to daycare.
