Mornings... Yelling, Rushing....
I am a mum who yells…. I try hard not to, but the not listening – selective hearing, especially in the mornings before school… ARGGHH, I hear my self actually saying to them it shouldn’t be this hard!’… but c’mon it really shouldn’t be?!
So today I have made my two eldest a checklist each! They are not having any ‘free time ‘before these items have been DONE!
I am a mum who yells…
I wake up every morning and think, today I am remaining calm, the kids will listen and we will be out the door at 845am without the need for me to raise my voice…
Three kids under 7 that is achievable, right!? WRONG.. EVERY GODDAMN morning, eat your breakfast, get dressed, and BRUSH YOUR TEETH… 1 hour later and after repeating these simple requests what feels like 88 times and I say ok, it is time to go… “and they with the quickest responses all morning shout back– but I haven’t’ eaten breakfast, or brushed my teeth’’… insert red faced yelling mother here.
I am a mum who yells.
I do often apologise to my neighbour for all of the yelling she must have to endure, thank fully she has two children herself and understands, but I am sure the neighbour on the other side whose children have all left the nest, must often wonder what the heck is going on in our house!
I am a mum who yells!!!!
I am going to see if this check list works.
I don’t want to be a mum that yells, but I am !
To all other mums who don't yell, please let me know what your secrets are..
