Or at least make it to places only fifteen minutes late which is a heck of an achievement.
Krechelle from Eightathome wants to share her tips on getting out of the house with six kids under six. What an achievement!
Throw everything that is vital into a Woolworths shopping bag; nappies, water, wipes and LOVE – all these things run out pretty quickly so be sure to pack enough in your bag.
Outfits; ready the night before, cut the crap, you’ve already committed to that, the children don’t change it ; you don’t change it; it is what it is.
Never do anything twice.
If you have a little spill; that is what a wipe was made for. A blow out at the shops; Kmart sells three dollar onesies.
Now I’m not totally opposed to taking a spare set of clothes however I’m more a throw it to the wind kind of person.
Breakfast; quickly with no tops on… tops get dirty, everyone eats ; bowls in sinks – go brush your teeth, put tops back on; no I didn’t say play fight, okay that’s it: you two go to the shoe area and put your allotted shoes on: it’s go time.
Shoes by the door. Say it with me now; “Shoes by the door”. We have a shoe rack, if I go to that shoe rack (by my door) right now there are eight pairs of shoes, one for each of us, ready to go- do not remove these shoes, do shoe checks ; say shoe again: shoe.
Bags ready, lunches ready; the night before. If I have to tell you this I feel like I can’t help you, you are unhelp-able. I’m actually at a loss – you don’t have lunch ready? I just, I just can’t help you.
Showers the night before- ain’t nobody got time for dat in the morning. If you do, can you message me because your way braver than I am and I think that you could throw down harder than me as a Mum- #mumliferepresent
Put kids in car separately. You can take them all at once if your bat shit crazy and want children running in different directions and climbing on seats and hitting each other; it’s awful but hey enjoy.
I take one at a time, walk, sit, buckle, repeat.
Powder, lipstick, dry shampoo, topknot, vest- what I live by everyday- 6 minutes get ready time.
Radio on loud.
Pick up a hot coffee; you deserve that.
Drown it out babes and rock your quiet five minute coffee; because you just did it, you got out of the house – can I get an AMEN.
Amen super mum!
Would you add anything else? Or has she totally nailed it?!
