Gotta Go, Gotta Go....

It is just a morning like any other. I laugh when people say I need to take time for myself, I got to thinking this morning, I don't even have time to pee; and let's not even broach the subject of showering.

6:30 A.M. Alarm goes off.

6:35 A.M. Disgruntled I get out of bed and throw in the Pilates DVD.

7:00 A.M. Kids wake-up, hugs and kisses

(I've gotta pee, but I need to change Gabe's diaper Pronto!)

7:05 A.M. Change stinky diaper and promptly take it outside to the trash can, this does involve winter coats, boots and gloves.  Briefly contemplate a move to warmer climate.

7:15 A.M. Make scrambled eggs, strawberries and toast for the kids complete with Gabe's supplement regimen and eat breakfast myself without actually ever sitting down (does this sound familiar, I need a drink, a fork, a napkin, etc.)

(I've gotta pee, but I need get these kids dressed)

7:45 A.M. Dishes

7:55 A.M. Pack snacks and drinks for the day

(I've gotta pee, oh my gosh its past 8, how did it get so late?)

8:10 A.M. Get the kids dressed

8:20 A.M. Child maintenance, brushing hair, teeth and washing faces

(I've gotta pee, BAD)

8:30 A.M. Spot my car keys, decide I better pack the diaper bag and find the cell phone before I forget and have to look for them in half an hour.

8:35 A.M. Random spillage to clean up

8:45 A.M. Break up a fight

(Geez, can't these kids just stop for one minute, I've got to pee!)

8:55 A.M. After putting in a video and separating the kids, I contemplate if I should shower, or could it wait
one more day.  This does involve stading for 30 seconds in front of the shower and staring at it longingly.

9:00 A.M. It cannot wait, hop in the shower.

9:01 A.M. In the shower, shampoo in hair, forgot to pee, expletives follow.

9:02 A.M. Think about how long I've actually said I have to pee in my head, and decide to randomly blog about it tonight.

9:15 A.M. Relief.

All in a day. I can't believe I'm posting about peeing! The job of a Mommy is never easy, on the bladder that is.
