21 thoughts every mom has during school drop-off

Sometimes getting the kids out of the house feels like a victory – never mind to school, and on time! We share just a few (of the gazillion) thoughts every mom has during their crazy start to the morning:

  1. Why won’t anyone let me pull out of the driveway? Don’t they know what it’s like to get kids to school? People without children can be so selfish.
  2. What age do the kids have to be to get Uber to school, I wonder?
  3. Why was this morning such a rush? I got up the minute the alarm went off.
  4. If I won the Lotto I’d get a driver to take the kids to school. Actually, they’d get tutors. Good ones. And we’d never have to leave the house. I mean, yacht! We’d never leave our yacht!
  5. What a miracle we got here on time. With two sets of lights out.
  6. I read somewhere you should do lunchboxes the night before. Next week I’m so gonna do that. I should plan and schedule everything on a Sunday night. I’ll add it to my to-do list.
  7. Oh no, I forgot to pack water bottles *searches car for yesterday’s bottles* Maybe the kids aren’t lazy… just dehydrated! Hmmm. Doesn’t reusing water bottles you’ve left in the hot car give you cancer? I need to buy those BPA-free bottles.
  8. I have the worst memory of any mom. Ever. Maybe I’m dehydrated.
  9. Why does that mom always double park?? Moms should really look out for each other more. I mean, they DO know what it’s like to get kids to school, right?
  10. I can’t wait till my eldest has his licence! Look at Tommy driving his friends to school. I bet all their moms are still in bed!
  11. Why aren’t the cars moving forward?
  12. We walked to school 30 years ago. Or took the bus. Or cycled.
  13. I’m so glad I brought coffee today. I love coffee.
  14. Hey, isn’t that boy in your class? Why is he carrying a papier mâché volcano? Wait. I haven’t helped make a volcano this week. *scans class’s Whatsapp group* 16 unread posts. Volcano due today.
  15. How does that mom walk in those high heels? I bet she sits all day… I would.
  16. Why are all the other children dressed in civvies/in sports kit/wearing a spring bonnet/wearing a bandana/as characters from books?
  17. Why is that mom carrying trays of cupcakes in special cupcake holders? Oh, it’s Cake n Candy today? Why didn’t you tell me! What time does the Spar open? Does the petrol station shop sell cupcakes? Can you take a box of Eat Sum More’s?
  18. Only 11 more years of doing the school run… Sigh.
  19. Too late to check: I can’t remember who has extramurals today. *dials child’s phone * How can they already be on voicemail?!
  20. Whose lunch is on the passenger seat? Hey 3 kids at 3 different schools, it’s okay to drop one ball…
  21. Finally I’m at work. *parks car* Today is going to be a productive day. Being a working mom isn’t so bad, I’m feeling quite organ… What?! Why is there still a child in the car?
