Taking Back My Morning

I’m taking Back My Morning!  I have spent the last four years raising babies.  My mornings have consisted of sleeping anywhere from 5-6 hours a night.

My youngest is always the first to wake me with his begging for a cup of milk.  I usually walk like a zombie at 5 am and then he’s off to sleep for hopefully another hour.  I then rush around the house getting us situated for the day.  The stress of my mornings wears me out before my day even gets half way through.  I am ready to take back my mornings and start my days off right.

Shopping for a few staple items, garden supplies and a special morning treat for myself.  I love croissants and decided  to reward myself with me time in my garden.  We have had beautiful mornings getting in the 70’s.  With Seattle’s Best on rollback, I was lucky enough to find a bag of Medium dark & rich Seattle’s Best Coffee.

My tips for taking back my Mornings.

Get on a schedule

kids bathed and fed by 8pm.  This stops all the commotion and play time is over.  They are allowed to read books, watch a show or help me get prepared for the following day.   But I refuse to give in to play time.

In the meantime I can straighten up, clean the kitchen, get clothes washed, dried and prepare for the next day.

  • Set clothes out for myself and boys.
  • Have our homeschool lessons ready to go.
  • Have our meal plan for the following day set.
  • Have a to do list for the following day set, so we aren’t rushing around trying to figure out what needs to be done.

As soon as I put the kids to bed, I spend no more than an hour up.  Usually my husband and I watch one of our favorite DVR’ed shows, then to bed I go.  I hate regretting my late nights the next day.  I am making it a point to get in 8 hours of sleep.


 A cup of medium dark and rich Seattle’s Best Coffee with a splash of vanilla creamer is my favorite morning pick me up.

Taking Back My Morning

A 5 am wake-up call for milk turns into an hour of me time.  My little guy goes right back to sleep and then off to make myself a cup Seattle’s Best Coffee, a croissant and enjoy an hour to sit in my garden with my iPad.  This has become my  favorite part of my day.
