I hate Tuesdays do you care to guess why???
Because they come after Mondays and before Wednesdays you say??? No…
I hate them because my children HATE them.
It is after Monday and they know what is coming now. They don’t like to go to bed on Monday nights you guessed it because they know that tomorrow is going to be the same as today was.
See Monday (since they are still so little) sneaks up on them. Let me explain to you.
They have Fridays with Daddy and Saturdays they get both of us and Sundays are church days and mommy days. So they forget all about having to get up and get dressed and ready to go at 6:00 in the morning. Usually Friday’s have become jammie days with daddy. They get to lay around and watch TV and play “wrestling” and chase and hide and seek. Saturdays we usually go to the store or to the park or try to do some fun and family activity. Sundays we are usually so busy by 2:00 our eyes are popping out of our heads.
So by Sunday night they are ready to get their baths and jammies and have their snacks and go to bed. So when Mom or Dad come into their room Monday morning (or wake them up from sleeping between us) they are a little disgruntled and confused. Which of course makes it easier to do the surprise sneak attack of getting dressed and ready.
They never throw a fit or anything when we leave for work. They know that we are going to make “milk money”. But Tuesdays oh blessed Tuesdays are so fun filled in the mornings. There is crying and “I don’t want to get dressed”, “my eyes are still sleeping” (Leanna’s personal favorite).
So by the time we get them dropped off and get on our way Josh and I have started hitting QT that morning for a cup of coffee and a regrouping session before we have to go to work.
So Tuesdays generally aren’t a good morning for us as a family. However I do REALLY enjoy my coffee on Tuesdays
