Morning school. Like, as in, I don't have a kid only going to afternoon kindergarten.
This is a problem. Let's take today, for example. Very typical day:
Nearly 11:00 am; still in the jammies.
So it's a problem.
I think I might have been thee only mom totally, completely overjoyed that school is now starting at 9:00 am, as opposed to the earlier, 8:30.
A half hour is a wonderful thing.
Anywho, two little improvements have been made to this here home to help lazy mom.
1. Took this discarded drawer front.
Sanded it down, painted it.
Added to it.
Next day's clothes are getting hung up here the night before. One less step to worry about in the morning.
2. Cleaned out my nast-asty junk cabinet (yes I have a full cabinet o' crap). I can't tell you how many days I've searched for a pencil to get homework done in vain.
Oh wait. Yes I can. It was every single school day.
Notice that I have put these up high so little hands cannot reach. Want 'em to stay here.
Be advised that this shelf is directly below the shelf that holds other "unreachables". Like every.single.one. of my knives. Oh, and sharpies. Oh, and matches.
I think I might need a few more pencils. You know, just in case. (got three extra packages of #2's).
And no, children, you may not use my freakin' pumper pencils. Those are mine. You guys break all the lead for kicks and giggles.
Saved some cans, used these:
as some cool, vintage-y labels (don't you want to cover your cans with these cool, free labels? Oh wait, that didn't come out right).
And there we are. Everything I need for homework
