UGH! That about says it all, but let me break it down for you. Just for fun.

6:30 Wake-up to the sounds of "Mommy! Mommy! Mommy!"
6:31 Brush teeth and go to the bathroom simultaneously to the sounds of "Mommy! Mommy! Mommy!"
6:33 Answer the call.
6:33:30 Find a leaky diaper, a soaked child, and a soaked bed
6:34 Handle the aforementioned items...blach!
6:35 Redress and rediaper child screaming "No diaper! Naked!"
6:36 Lose battle
6:37 Greet other child to the sound of "Mommy, I'm hungry. Mommy, look. This is a clone trooper and this is another clone trooper. And this is a gun that shoots purple lasers. Mommy, can I have milk and a cereal bar. Mommy, look...this guy's a good guy. This guy just got blown up."
6:38 "Cook" breakfasts for 1 adult, 1 Kindergartner, and 1 toddler to the sound of "Mommy! My milk! I'm hungry!"
6:42 Bribe toddler with blueberries if she gets dressed.
6:45 Make the mistake of giving toddler frozen (organic) blueberries for breakfast.
6:46 Eat (e.g. shovel in) own breakfast as blueberry covered daughter climbs in my lap for her share.
6:47 Pour hot tea over my arm and leg to the sounds of "Mommy, more milk, please. Mommy, can I have a pastry? Mommy, this DVD isn't working."
6:48 Gather Kindergartner's clothes together and ask him to get dressed.
6:55 Smell something foul.
6:56 Change nastiest diaper even known.
7:00 Change toddlers clothes. Outfit 2. Fight 2.
7:10 "More blueberries, Mama!" (Mama is used for variety, but the impact is the same.)
7:12 Deliver more blueberries.
7:15 Deliver more blueberries.
7:16 Tell Kindergartner to get dressed or he will be going to school in pajamas. (Turns out this is not a big threat to a garden variety Kindergartner.)
7:20 Wipe blueberry covered face and hands with minimum success.
7:21 Wipe blueberry hand prints from wall with no success.
7:23 Dress Kindergartner. Ask him to put on his own socks and shoes.
7:29 Advise children that I'm getting dressed.
7:31 Attempt to locate public-safe clothes while husband is trying to sleep because he's on the night shift this week.
7:32 Yell to the kids to "STOP FIGHTING!"
7:33 Locate clothes and dress.
7:35 Put Kindergartner's coat on and place his backpack by the door.
7:38 Put unhappy toddler with new layer of blueberries in stroller.
7:40 Put on horrible, bright yellow Crocs and brown dowdy coat.
7:40:45 Push stroller out door.
7:41 Get to elevator. Toddler pushes button! Mommy realizes that Kindergartner has left his backpack next to the door. Advises Kindergartner to get backpack FAST!
7:42 Elevator arrives.
7:42:15 Kindergartner arrives with backpack. No shoes.
7:42:16 Elevator leaves.
7:44 Kindergartner brings shoes to elevator and button is pushed again.
7:50 Elevator arrives.
7:50:05 Board elevator as doors close on crappy, yellow Crocs.
7:50:30 Arrive relatively unscathed on "E". Exit elevator and proceed QUICKLY to school.
7:55 Hear school bell.
7:56 Arrive at school.
8:15 Arrive home (toddler wanted to walk).
8:16 Realize shirt has hole in very inappropriate location and sweatpants could safely be called crotchless. Turns out they weren't public clothes after all.
8:17 Hope the day improves as toddler begins her first temper tantrum of the day.

So, basically just an ordinary day, right?

Well, except for the blueberries. Note to self: Save blueberries for pre-bath snack.
