Slowly as the school year has progressed, it's gotten harder and harder to get my difficult children up and out the door and to school on time. They seem to be later and later getting out the door and I'm shorter and shorter on patience. It's at the point that unless I'm yelling at them, they're not moving. I hate this. I hate starting our day like this. I can't even figure out a "natural consequence" for them being late because one of them loves riding the bus and of course the other one hates the bus and would be thrilled to have parent drop off. difficult child 1 yelled at me this morning and said I was a terrible mom because I made her use the downstairs bathroom instead of letting her run all the way up to use the upstairs one. She literally had no time to go upstairs or she'd miss the bus. I know I should probably let them both miss the bus and take them both to school late because they do both hate walking in late to school. But I just want them out of the stupid house. I don't want to have to wait to take them to school late. I guess I have to suck it up and just do it a couple times and maybe they'll get back with-the program. I'm just aggravated about the whole thing. It's not good for any of us to start the day this way. Anyone else have this issue and have a solution/suggestion that worked for them?
