Kind of ironic that I'm writing about this, considering the fact that I desperately need "Time Management for Tim", but this morning routine/time management for kids blog from the San Francisco Chronicle really sucked me in.

We've gone from 2 kids to 3 kids in school this year, and I still haven't accurately factored in extra time for one more sandwich and one more snack and two more shoes to be tied and 6 more missing notebooks and 14 more forms that I need to sign each morning. For our night-owl family, the goal seems to be to wake up as late as possible while still getting the key morning steps accomplished without being too insane and still making the bus 9 times out of 10. That too much to ask?

We're getting there, but it's a work in progress. How about you? And what are your best tricks of the trade?
