Get Up Eat Breakfast Get Dressed Go to School

September 8, 2021 5:50 PM

In honor of the upcoming first day of school, here is a song about the pressures of the morning.

I wrote this back in April to kick off the song-a-week effort I did for a while.

I've had too many mornings like this: ordered and rushed chaos. You want Fruit loops? No waffles then? Oh, we're out of syrup! Put on your shoes! Brush your teeth! I have to get ready for work!, etc...

People tell me I will miss this part of my life once my kids are grown up. I'll take that sentimental remembrance gladly in exchange for a nice peaceful morning in which I sip a coffee on the deck, listening to birds in zen-like relief.

Same. I should set a reminder for a dozen years in the future to remember these times, then immediately go out on the deck.

oh yeah this. miss it? nope. never again.
very amusing audio representation of that blurry tired window of "get the f out the door it's almost 7am". the ending is like getting ready for work after part 1 is done. now put this on loop for about 16 years.
never. again.

Haha, yeah, I actually have seen people with grown kids go for a Round 2. Terrifying!
