First day back to school 2012

Today is the first day back to school after the long break. I set alarm at 6.15am, but I automatically woke up at 5pm.
 I prepared egg mayo sandwiches for my two princesses to bring to schoo1.
 I forced them down with a cup of beverage.
I offered them snacks. While April finishing her breakfast, lil May was still sulking and whining. I was almost raising my magic wand, then only she gave me her cooperation.
I sent both of them to bed at 10pm last night. They woke up at 6am. Both my princesses were all set and ready to go to school at 7am. Mummy wiping sweat off, breathing in and breathing out, as hectic days start today.  Mummies and daddies, how is it going on yours?

  13. SK, May is very playful at school. She can't even finish a piece of sandwich. She doesn't need to go to school that early, but I need to send the elder one, so she has to get ready earlier as well, or else no one can settle her.

    Broccoli Ginger, second is a bit better for me. I hope it is getting better once I get used of it.

    Yvonne, afternoon is seems better, you don't need to be so rush in the morning.

    Hayley, yes, i am getting better now.

    Eugene, I am getting better today, and days to come. I really appreciate your kind words.

    Johnnie, you are right, this will be the routine for the next decade of my life. Granny like you, can be more relax now.

    Claire, thanks for reminding me to treasure the time, otherwise I am still grumbling now.

    Yee Ling, good luck. You can start the training earlier, just to get prepare for next year.

    Charmaine, you still have one month to relax. Yes, the sky is still dark at 7am.

    Mummy Chloe, you are steady and relax. Good job to you. Chloe is a good girl, so you have no problem at all.

    Angeline, I am glad to know Calvin is doing fine. Praise him more today.

  14. Can imagine your 'hectic-ness' as you have to do so many things w/o a helper. I too have been waking up at 530am everyday to get my 2 older girls ready for school. Here's wishing you a good year :)
