Ya know I was really worried about the kids getting up and getting ready on time for school...well, mainly Aaron to be honest. During the summer I have to be honest - there were a couple of days he went to my mother's house in just his underwear! In my defense I was trying to teach him a lesson - you don't get up when I tell you, you leave just as you are when it's time to go. It did work, though - he only did it a couple of times before he realized I was not joking!
Don't threaten your kids with things if you don't plan on following through - I told him when I was ready to go if he wasn't ready too bad...and I meant it! LOL
But honestly - I haven't had a problem getting them up. Emma picks out her clothes the night before (and sometimes even her brother's outfit), she has her alarm set, they get up, brush their teeth, their hair, get dressed and all I have to do is just do time checks! This working mom is rejoicing!! Aaron hasn't mastered tying his shoes, yet - he is getting close, but until then mommy & sister are still needed! ;)
I think little brother pinched her right here! Ha ha!!
I am so happy they have one another and even though they do fight like brother & sister, they love like brother & sister, too!
