5 Perks of Early Morning Drop Off at School

This year our oldest son doesn’t get a bus. Originally he had a bus stop, until the county cut a bunch of bus stops making my five-year-old a walking student. Yeah, not letting my five-year-old walk three miles to school. So by the whole good parent default, I am driving him every morning and then sitting in an obnoxiously long pick-up line every afternoon.

Small price to pay to the school gods.

This morning, when I was getting ready to leave the house, making sure that he had everything needed for Monday morning at school, I was trying to figure out all the positives of the actual morning drop-off. Because, let’s face it, having to get up early enough to drop your child off at 7:30 AM isn’t a walk in the park. Especially if you aren’t a morning person. (Insert a grumble about how much I hate life before 9 AM here.)

The more I thought about it, the more hysterical thoughts popped into my head, a lot of them focused around my lack of need for a bra.

    You don't have to get out of your car. You pull up and let your kid jump out in between the number of safety patrols managing the drop-off lane. Think that picture is a little excessive for a school drop off? That has NOTHING on our elementary school drop-off lane, which virtually closes traffic on two main roads for an hour in the morning.

  • 2. Bras Are Optional 2 of 5

    The last thing I want to do in the morning, is put on a damn bra. Can I get an Amen? (Thank you ladies!)

    The morning drop-off ensures bras are completely optional. Just skip the white shirt.

    Don't want to wear shoes?
    Then don't!

    I know half the time I don't even bother to put them on before jumping in the car.

  • 4. You Can Skip the Brush 4 of 5

    Don't got time to brush your hair? Who cares!

    Throw it up in a bun or ponytail and you don't have to worry. Well, as long as you have tinted windows. If not, the teachers may think you are a mom on the edge.

  • 5. Did I Mention You Don’t Need to Wear a Bra? 5 of 5

    Did I mention that you DON'T have to wear a bra?

    Honestly, I think that should be reasons #1-5. Because it is just that important.
