Between 7:15 and 7:45 am is rush hour around here.
It is also the time, apparently, to make some noise. After a good 10 hours of silence (while sleeping), and before hours of having to be relatively quiet at school, the kids feel the need to get it all out!
Here are some of things going on during rush hour today:
Savannah practicing the piano.
Rebecca folding a big pile of laundry in the middle of the family room, while singing the national anthem at the top of her lungs.
Caleb whistling, rapping, or opera singing, alternately, while he wandered around wrapped in a blanket “looking” for a clean uniform shirt.
Jonah repeatedly pushing the button on the Handy Manny tool box to hear it play the theme song.
Simon throwing a kicking, screaming, fit… first because he had to have his pants changed, and then because I couldn’t feed him fast enough.
Everyone needing me to sign their planners and reading logs.
Everyone trying to pack their lunches while Jonah chased them around with a lightsaber.
Some people complaining that they were still hungry because they didn’t like the millet cereal I cooked for breakfast.
Most people (at some point) tattling on Josh for tooting.
And me, somehow still smiling, taking some Excedrin!
