For me, getting to work is like being stuck in one of those weird dreams where you try to move and do stuff but time is like quick sand and you just can't work out how it got to 9am and why you're only just getting to work after waking up at 6am!
Phew, I'm exhausted just thinking about it.
Confession: after heading back to work after a bout of maternity leave I found that I was often late to work. Somewhat embarrassing when you're a partner of a law firm and have others looking to you to set the example.So in the aim to adult better, I've implemented these strategies to try and get us out the door quicker and into work on time.
1. I shower the night before if I have to do childcare drop off. It just saves so much time and actually helps me get to sleep quicker too.
2. I don't bathe my child in the morning. In fact, Remy only has a shower or bath once every three days which is better for his sensitive skin and reduces his heat rashes.
3. I get out our outfits the night before or Brendan pulls out Remy's, so it's all sitting there waiting for us as we rub our bleary eyes and down coffee in the mornings.
4. This is a game changer: Brendan and I share the drop off/pick up load depending on our work schedules and stress levels.What other parenting hacks have you got for us? Please share. Please!
