Sometimes my passion is just to make it through the mornings. #momlife

In a recent NBC profile, I saw how Walsh Jennings’  manic mornings “mamagering” three children ages 7, 6 and 3, is no different than any of our mornings.

Sure, she has three consecutive gold medals in beach volleyball from 2004, 2008, and 2012 Summer Olympics. 

Sure she’s poised to win another gold medal tonight, in Rio, with new partner April Ross. Tune in TONIGHT 8pm! (Okay, record it because chances are the kids aren’t sleeping, yet. Rggg daylight saving time. I long for it to get dark at 6pm so we can be back at our 7:30/8pm sleep time.)

And, sure Walsh Jennings has graced the covers of countless magazines.

But, were I to have the privilege to speak to her, I’m sure she would say that the hardest and most fulfilling job is these mornings with daughter Margery, and sons Joseph and Sundance.

negotiate with toddlers, get everyone dressed, no shoes are not an option, feed yourself while you stand, comb hair (yourself included), put on their SPF, make sure everyone’s bag is packed with snacks because g-d forbid they go to day care where everything is 100% organic and yummy with a snack from mom … okay that was my morning!
