Our preschool mornings (read: every weekday morning) is usually full of rush-rush-rush, punctuated by my frequent (and frustrated) calls of, “Come on, you’re going to be late!!”
Keeping TLE focused on the morning routine is a constant struggle. It got better once we set a predictable routine but both TLE and I are prone to wandering off/forgetting what we’re doing until I look at the clock and whinge about the time.
One we were just almost ready to leave — all that remained was for TLE to put on her shoes and socks and we would be out the door. But as she was walking downstairs to select her shoes, she got distracted. ”Mommy, Mommy, look there’s little things in the light!”
Completely forgetting what she was supposed to be doing, she twirled this way and that, reaching her arms up, scooping down and even sticking out her tongue in an attempt to catch the dust. I grabbed my camera.
She was late to preschool that morning. But I don’t think either of us cared.
