I really need to get my sh*t together before I have twins!

   Do you want to hear about my morning? I got out of bed around 8:15 because Chase was crying. I brought him in bed with me and we snuggled for a little while. Then I had to check my facebook before I could get up.
   I rolled out of bed and put my robe on and got Chase dressed. We walked downstairs and I made my breakfast. Chase wasn't ready for breakfast yet. Then I sat down to watch Keeping up with the Kardashians while I ate my breakfast.
   This brought me to about 9:40. Chase had a flu shot appointment across town at 10:55 so I didn't have much time for anything but to get ready. By the time I got ready and threw a load of laundry in the washer it was time to go. This means I had no time to do the dishes.
   I got to the doctors and waited for them to call me to their desk so I could check in and she tells me to fill out a form and then she says, "I don't see Chase for today. His appointment is tomorrow." Ugh!!!!!!!!!!!
   I swear my husband said something about Chase has an appointment Monday. He gets the calls for some reason. I think he told me this when I was doing a million other things and distracted by the toddler and I said oh yeah I know. Last night I looked at my app to see what time the appointment was but didn't pay attention to the date. Even this morning my dad mentioned something about do we have something going on Tuesday because it was blocked off on my work calendar.
   I told Chase we were going to the doctor and he might get a lollipop and on the way out and all the way home he was asking about his lollipop. I'm so frustrated! I blame pregnancy brain. I was told it affects my ability to listen to my husband. I also blame the new ios7 calendar. I can't see sh*t on that thing.
   After having a very unproductive Kardashian filled morning I was already feeling like a lazy bum and then going to an appointment on the wrong day just pissed me off. My patience just flew out the window. Luckily Chase was tired and is now napping and I can try to get my patience back. The only thing that I kept thinking was oh my goodness I only have one child and I can't seem to get it together. I really need to get my sh*t together before I have twins!
   I have often fantasized about being a mom that gets up before her children. I tell myself I will be waking up earlier once the twins arrive. But I really think I need to start getting up a few minutes earlier so I can at least get ready for the day before Chase wakes up. The other day we saw some kids that live on our street heading to the park and Chase wanted to go with them. He had to wait for his lazy bum of a mom to get dressed first though. I don't want to be like that.
   Any one else want to join me in getting up 30 minutes earlier? Maybe we can hold each other accountable.


  1. I don't have any children so I can't really relate to that part of your blog but I enjoy your writing. Glad to see someone else writing about the realities of life. You go girl and just keep being you!

  2. I am super curious as to what my schedule will be once the baby is here. Granted, I will only have 3 months at home before going back to work, but I have visions of getting up and working out. We'll see! Hope tomorrow is a better day!

  3. Yuck! That stinks! I have done the same thing (driven to an appointment that was the next day- my appointment was in a city an hour away and I got stuck in traffic!). I didn't have pregnancy brain at that point or a toddler- it was just me being...scattered. Hope your day got better!

  4. I don't have kids, so I can't relate to that, but I can relate to always wishing I had just a little more time. I just started a new job after almost 2 years off and it is soo hard to get up early. It doesn't help that I'm NOT a morning person either. I hope tomorrow is a better day for you!

  5. I get up at an unreasonable hour - 5am. I Set my alarm for five am every day. Some mornings I Get up. Some mornings I let it go off until I turn it off. The only way I can do anything for myself is if I get up at 5am! It's crazy. At least my little guy has been snoozing until at least 7 now. TWO HOURS ALONE. It so rarely happens ... ;)

  6. I get up at 6:00am to workout, and Landon is usually up by 7:30 the latest. I don't get to shower until a bit later because Jeff has to get in so he can get to work on time, but it makes a huge difference for me when I get up before Landon. I have a little time to myself, and I feel calmer and less rushed since I'm already up and going by the time he wakes up. I don't do that on weekends and I feel more frazzled.

  7. Getting up is NOT something I do well! I definitely need to get up 30 minutes earlier, but I'm pretty sure that's not going to happen! But I just might try! :)
