ME [in bed]:
Get out of bed everyone!

KIDS:
Okay! Here we go! Now our uniforms are on!

ME [in bed]:
Oh. Er. Feed the dogs!

KIDS:
Okay! We’ve done that! Yay!

ME [still in bed]:
Right! Well, I guess just watch TV or something?

ME SLEEPS. FIFTEEN MINUTES PASS.

ME FLIES OUT OF BED, CRYING.

ME:
We’re late! Quick! Why haven’t you got a banana in your lunch! Well find one! Your socks don’t match! The dogs don’t have any water! Why do I have to do everything! JUST GET IN THE CAR.

KIDS:
We want a new mother!

ALL:
[crying]

I will sometimes send you some stuff about writing and bits of fiction and probably photos of my dog.

About Anna Spargo-Ryan

Iā€™m Anna, a freelance digital strategist, web developer and writer who likes to drink 'Ice Tea' but doesn't understand why it's not called 'Iced Tea'. By night and occasionally morning, I eat things, write things, berate my children, walk my dogs and hug my chocolate.

    Sounds very much like Chez ‘Abulous but without the inevitable melt down at daycare over something I’ve forgotten to pack.
