Things got so bad this morning that I lost. I really lost it. I had an appointment and she was moving so slowly that there was no way that I would make it on time. I ended up going drill sergeant on her: wouldn't let her finish brushing her hair OR bring the brush, she didn't have time to wipe the milk mustache off her face or even brush her teeth, and I even made her walk to the car in her bare feet and put on her socks/shoes in the car (it was raining). She woke up at 8am and we left at 945. I was on her the entire time. She's been told that we will not deal with this garbage once school starts... she will be on that bus, on time, if she's still in her pj's and her hair is a rat's nest and I have to drag her up the steps. Not my problem anymore because she knows what she needs to do but chooses not to do it. I'm seriously considering changing her nickname to "Sloth". I have had a tension headache all day.
