It's like Leveling Up on a Video Game but with more penalties than rewards

It's getting harder and harder to get the children ready and out the door each morning in a timely fashion.  The latest is that one or both don't want to get out of their pajamas and into their clothes, let alone let us even change their night diapers.  Our theory is that they want to move at their own pace

Usually one or both of them wake up in the middle of the night and want to sleep with us.  I will take the second one and go into the guest bedroom and hopefully I can fall back asleep. 

It's stressing me out because even though I don't punch a clock at work, I really cannot get to the office late and still leave early for the pickup at Daycare (to say nothing of squeezing in a lunchtime workout). By the time I get to work, my team has already been working for almost two hours.  

Then there is my mom.  She has been a big help these last few months when she could take the kids to school and pick them up for us.  She also has picked up some housekeeping chores like doing our laundry and our dishes.  When it comes to getting ready in the morning however, she isn't much help when she is healthy, and she is not healthy these last few weeks.

and unfortunately we only have so much morning to work with.   If we are lucky enough that they sleep through the night and the insomnia gnome doesn't attack us, we get them up by 6 and let them slowly adjust.  But most mornings are not like that at all.

I've set the comments up to allow anonymous users -- but I'd love it if you "signed" your comments (as some of my readers have done) just so you have an identity of sorts.
