How does your morning start?
I hope you get to take a few minutes to enjoy your family or your alone time before rushing into the day.
My morning used to start with a headache and dogs hogging my bed. Now, I avoid those headache triggers and my sweet old puppies sleep downstairs.
☀️As the sun comes up over the mountains, I’m normally more tired than I would like, but I wake up to, “Mommy, it’s good-morning time!” and smiles.
Our family’s been taking a few extra minutes each morning to just snuggle before I rush to my much-needed coffee and Nishantha begins to get ready for work. It’s something I hope we can keep in our routine when I got back to work.
Mamas with littles, I know we’re all so tired in the mornings. Keep going. Try to get to bed earlier. Appreciate the little ones who keep us up and wake us up. I hear this phase won’t last forever.
I'm a teacher, mama, and mentor. I created the You Before School e-course and more. I'm here to encourage and share self-efficacy skills for women.
