Late. Always Late.
Before I had kids I was almost always on time or early to things. Now I am rushing in at the last second, or more typically - late. Anyone else? Anyone have good tips for getting myself back to being early for everything??
I always ask what time the event is and plan out in my head approximately how much time it will take to get myself ready and my daughter. My daughter is easy to dress so first thing the morning of, or the night before, I pick out her clothes so when I'm ready I can just slip it on and go. Then I get myself ready last because I take the longest lol.
I was always early or on time. now i struggle to get there on time. Part of it is leaving earlier but part of it is also not committing to things that conflict with naps ot feedings.
I am not good at being on time for things, however, the only trick I have for being remotely close to on time is to honestly have everything ready like the day or morning before. Also, I tell myself to leave over an hour earlier before the time of the event, this way if I am running late for the I told myself, I will hopefully not be to late then the actual time. I hope that works at least a little bit. But if not, just say you are late because of the baby, and that is always the perfect excuse and people can't get upset. :)
