Ah, mornings. As much as I appreciate the promise of possibility in each new day, mornings are one of the more challenging aspects of motherhood. Getting small people up, dressed, fed, brushed, and ready for school on schedule with smiling faces is an art form that takes practice. And no matter how close any of us come to perfecting our morning routine, we know that one missing homework assignment, stubbed toe, or juice spill is all it takes to turn our carefully executed morning upside-down.
We might not be able to prevent life’s inevitable happenings, but we can simplify our morning routine to help mitigate potential disasters.
