The Morning of a Working Mom

📣 A peek into the morning of a working mom:
5:45 a.m. Wake up and start the coffee, have some quiet time, and pack my breakfast and lunch.
6:30 a.m. Get in the shower, see if Chase is awake yet–he’s not. Proceed to shower and determine if I’m going to use dry shampoo or blow dry my hair… dry shampoo it is!
7 a.m. Chase is now awake. Make him a fresh bottle, change his diaper and allow him to play while I finish getting ready.
7:15 a.m. Chase protests that he wants to be with me while I get ready. That can’t happen as I’m in the bathroom and he loves the tub. Plan B, put him in the jumper to watch his favorite show, Elmo’s World.
7:30 a.m. It’s go time. Load up Chase’s bag, my bag, my lunch, my coffee, Chase’s bottle and yes, don’t forget Chase. 🙊
7:45 a.m. That took too long, but we are off.
8:15 a.m. Arrive at Chase’s sitter’s and get him out of car seat. Upon getting him unbuckled, realize he smells like butt and had a blow-out diaper in the car… must have been the prunes he had the night before. Help sitter get him stripped for the bath. Leave in a hurry and continue to work.
8:45 a.m. Arrive at work after battling traffic. Walk in with coffee like none of that happened but keep laughing about how crazy it was.
** This was only three hours in my day. Mom’s of multiples, moms of singles, you’re all rock-stars! **
