-Got myself ready in 5minutes.
-Dropped Sol off at school.

– now its 11:16 and I have 3 weeks worth of homework to catch up on, emails to send, and more… and I just wanna sleep and b/c I know in a few hours Sol is gonna wake up to pee and
Moonbeam is gonna wake up to nurse.
*keep in mind Sol is 2, so every task done with her includes me calming her down during meltdowns, repeating myself 10xs, chasing her around, cleaning up messes etc.
