Problem Solved....

I really dislike getting up and getting the kids ready for school in the morning. I know that sounds really lame....but seriously it is such a pain. The problem is different for each boy. Evan is difficult to even wake up. This kid could sleep through a tornado and that is no joke....he has been known, more than once, to throw up on himself while sleeping and never move a muscle....sleeps right through it. Ian on the other hand is great when it comes to actually waking up and getting out of bed. However, once his feet hit the floor he is in snail mode. I dont think a person could move slower if they tried. It takes him 15 minutes just to brush his teeth....20 to get dressed. It borders on ridiculous how slow this boys moves. Unfortunately for Ian, I have no patience for it and so our mornings become stress filled.....I constantly ride him to hurry up, lets go, move it! So, my dear sweet Ian solved his problem last night.....after he showered he suggested that perhaps he should go ahead and get completely dressed for the day so that all I have to do is wake him up and he could brush his teeth and go! He said, "that way you wont have to get so mad at me mom"......Geez....now I feel horrible. I told him not to worry about it that I was going to try and not get so stressed out from now on. Later in the evening, Denver went into Ian's room looking for something and called me so I could see this......
Ian the problem solver.....I guess he was serious!

Marcy we think alike. I was going to say that's so sweet. I've got a snail around here in the mornings too.

So how did the morning go? Bayley actually had started setting her own alarm and it made things so much easier...when you put them in charge it sometimes takes the pressure off of them and you!
