I suck.

I have managed to get my daughter to school late the last two days. I'm not feeling great about that. Granted, it's only been by like a minute or two, but they take tardiness very seriously at her school. Anyway, other than waking up a half hour earlier, I don't know how to keep this from happening. My daughter is a major putzer in the morning. It takes 15 minutes just to get her up out of bed. It doesn't matter how early she gets to bed the night before, it'll still take 15 minutes to wake up the next morning. Then she takes 20 minutes to eat breakfast because she keeps getting up and wandering around and doing God knows what else. Meanwhile, I'm ironing, or getting her breakfast or feeding the dog or any other number of morning things. Ultimately, I'm the one that's got to get us out the door on time and I'm just mad at myself.

I'm thinking a bucket of ice-cold water perched over the bed and timed to spill at an early enough hour is just the solution you're looking for. ;)
