Waking up to the sound of birds chirping outside your window, indulging in a leisurely breakfast of home-made nasi lemak, reading The Straits Times while savouring a cup of freshly-brewed kopi, planning your dinner date after work at the newest table at Duxton Hill. Errr… if only!
Once you’re a parent, you’re always in a race with time to accomplish a gazillion things within the hour (or at max, 2 hours) before your kids set out for school. Coffee? What coffee?
Here’s a list of the things mums do before 8am (and we’re sure we’ve missed out some):
1. Wake the kids up
2. Put the kettle on for some coffee (often with a tiny tot attached to your ankles)
3. Wake the kids up again
4. Brush their teeth (while nagging that they’re going to be late for school, and you, for work)
