I am creating a home command center. School will be back in session before we know it and after sifting through home command centers I decided we needed one. This year Wyatt will be in kindergarten and Mason will be in Pre-K. Last year I was so emotional about sending Wyatt to Pre-K, but this year I am so excited to be sending two of my three off to school. Maybe it is mean of me or maybe it is because this summer I have been here with them the entire break and I am nearing my wits end.
I am so thankful that I am able to work from home with the kids, but with all three of them and no job outside of the home to escape to (even if it is just for a little bit) has me frazzled. I can’t start a project, a blog post, an order or a sentence without being interrupted a zillion times by Mason hit me, Wyatt took my pencil, I want a drink or my personal favorite come wipe my butt.
I have found myself thinking long and hard about how I am going to manage getting both of the boys up, dressed, fed and dropped off at school on time all while carting around a 9 month old. The only solution I can think of is a consistent routine and a command center where the boys can grab and drop off their book bags each day. Two nights ago I stayed up in bed while everyone else slept and pinned command centers to my hearts content. Today I went out and bought everything I needed to create one in our laundry room. The only other thing I need are hooks for the boys’ coats and book bags. My husband said I am a nerd but I say he is as messy as the rest of them and I am fed up with cleaning up after everyone!
