OK so we have had our first week at kindy in SA last week and it didn't go real well but the biggest problem we are having is getting out the door in the morning.
Eventually dd will be going on the school bus(we live rural) but at this stage due to her anxiety about kindy we are driving her daily. So we have to leave at 8am to be at kindy by 8.40am (when we catch the bus we will have to leave at 7.30am which seems very unlikely at this stage). We live on a farm so until now have never really had a morning routine we have to stick to.
This was our attempt last week
7am get up and try to convince two children that normally sleep till 8am out of bed.
Finally get kids up by 7.30 and try to get an answer out of dd as to what she wants for lunch. Then what she wants for breakfast.
Kids finish breakfast around 7.50 at which time I'm going into meltdown as still have to dress two kids, brush hair, do teeth, pack bag and get them loaded in the car.
We have had the tele on each morning and I'm thinking of turning that off next week to see if it helps.
So any tips or tricks from other parents as to what I'm doing wrong and any ways to fix this??? Please!
