Day 5 of Blogtober 2020 already, what better topic for today is Manic Monday. Oh and yes I do now have The Bangles song Manic Monday going around in my head.
Mondays of the past
Monday mornings used to be a nightmare in our household. My husband would start work early and was lucky not to have to deal with Monday mornings.
Every weekend and school holiday C would be awake super early, bring on Monday morning and she would try to stay in bed.
Breakfast was eaten at a snails pace, while I would put on a load of washing, make up her packed lunch at times with her telling me she did not like what she has got all of a sudden. Trying to find something else while trying to drink my coffee while still remotely warm.
Then it would be brushing teeth and getting dressed. Somehow on a Monday morning this seemed like an impossible task. I once timed her and it took 10 minutes to get one sock on.
Once dressed it would be the hair, you would think she was being murdered the noise she would make, but we got there in the end. Before shoes on and out to the car, for the school run. It felt like I had done a days work before 9am.
Since C became ill, our Mondays are much more relaxed. Due to her medication we have now got to waking up at 9.30 when I go in and check she is ok and sort her breakfast and morning medication.
I then get to sit and wake up with my morning coffee while checking emails and messages.
Our Mondays are like every morning now and much more relaxed and chilled. Although I would swap in a heartbeat if she could recover.
How are your Manic Mondays?
