No matter who you are or where you are going, we are all guilty of sleeping thru our alarm. This morning it happened to me. When I woke up I had 15 minutes to get both my kids out of bed, get all 3 of us ready and out the door. I couldn’t roll into the school drop off in my pj’s, I had a multitude of errands to run this morning. I had to look half way presentable. Only 15 minutes? No problem!! Here is what I do to make a crazy mad rush out the door morning more smooth.
First, I tell Sofia that we are playing a game, yeah! Who can get ready and be standing by the door first? That person wins! GO!!! I lay out an outfit she can put on herself. I make sure she goes potty and brushes her teeth. Easy Peasy!
Next is me, oih! Everyone needs that 1 go to outfit that you can put on quickly, you know it will look good and you will feel good wearing it. For me, it’s a pair of thick leggings, a long sweater, tall boots and a soft, cozy scarf. I call it effortless fashion, or a hot mess- you choose. I have a 5 minute make up bag that gets taken here or there or where ever I need it. Today, it went in the car and my make up was done on the go. Luckily my hair didn’t move much while I was sleeping, or else it would be up in a messy bun.
I grab Caleb out of his crib, diaper change and clean pants. I throw a hoodie over his pj shirt and he is good to go!
Just because you are running late doesn’t mean you have to skip breakfast. Make sure you have options for yourself. Have hard-boiled eggs in the fridge and grab a banana. Or, my personal go to is a Kind protein bar. It’s high in protein, low in sugar and has 200 calories. That’s a meal replacement for me. Skip the drive thru with that oh so yummy pumpkin muffin with cream cheese frosting and spice latte with whipped cream, and oh! can I have a saddle bag with that please? Don’t blow your entire days calories!
Whether you are late for work, school drop off, an appointment, etc; you don’t have to panic. Get dressed, a little make up and something to eat and you are good to go and looking fabulous!
And yes, my kids ate cereal bars and squeezy yogurt in the car :)
