7:00 a.m. Me: Max, get up!
7:05 a.m. Me: Maaaaaaax get up and get down, I don’t want to be late for a bus again.
7:25 a.m. Me: Maaaaaaaaaax, I am leaving and I don’t care if you going to make it to school or not (lie, that works every time. )
7:25 a.m. Max: Mom, do I have to go to school today, I am tired and I don’t want to get up!
7:26 a.m. Me: Almost pulling my hair out and screaming of the top of my lungs… I don’t have time for this if you are not up in 2 seconds – watch me leave the house.
7:26 a.m. Alex from his room: Stop yelling everyone, some of us don’t have to get up for work/school or anything in between.
7:30 a.m. I am completely out of steam giving Max his breakfast ( after all – what is the most important meal of the day?)
By the time we are ready to get out of the door, I feel like taking another shower (why do I bother every morning? )
7:45 .m. We are finally at the bus stop waiting, waiting, waiting. It’s been 15 minutes and Max started to look at me funny…
8:00 a.m. Me: Max if we missed the bus again, I am going to kill you (of course I am not going to kill him, I love him!)
8:05 a.m. I am calling the school – Sorry if you are waiting for a bus it’s not coming – few of our buses had mechanical issues and we are only now making phone calls, sorry if we missed you, but we have a very long list…….
8:05 a.m. I am fuming and I can’t even scream at Max anymore. He victoriously smiles!!!
9:15 a.m. an hour later I am finally at my work desk. Just give me my coffee, don’t bother me for few minutes/hours and please DO NOT YELL – I am here to relax!
