Because Of Things Like Vanilla Rice Krispies, I Cannot Be A Full Time Working Mom

On the odd day here and there when I have to work a morning shift at my very very part time job, it's total chaos in my house. On the drive into work I feel anxious everytime that I didn't make beds, I worry that my kids are going to need me and I won't be home and I hate that the breakfast dishes often stay dirty either in the sink, if they make it that far, but usually are left on the table right where the kids ate. The Vanilla Rice Krispies are glued onto the table by the time I get home at night because of the sugar coating and you almost have to use steel wool to get them off sometimes. I also feel the guilt of the morning rush. My kids are used to having fairly mellow mornings. There's always time to watch a bit of TV or play a video game before school but on my work mornings everything is a mad rush.
Tomorrow is going to be one of my work mornings and I've spent more time organizing for it than the amount of hours I'll actually work in my shift. I don't know how full time working moms do it. They are stronger that I.
