We are not morning people.
We are late morning people, after a cup or two of coffee. After a good nights sleep. After breakfast and time to wake up our lazy bodies.
We are not morning people. Even when our bodies have to be up and moving and going, going, going, our minds are comfortably back in bed.
And this is the reason that mornings are such a challenge in our house.
We have a routine for mornings when we have to be out of the house at a certain time. And now that the kiddo has entered kindergarten, that’s pretty much every morning.
The boys wake up. They stumble around like drunk little sailors. They yawn and rub their eyes. And then promptly refuse to go potty or get dressed, the two items must be completed first. Before breakfast or TV or playing. Or the result is a naked boy screaming and rolling around on the floor when we should be in the car driving to our destination.
Trust me, I learned this the hard way.
As the boys get older and our schedules get more hectic and our mornings busier, I’ll do anything that I can to make our mornings go a little smoother. Because often our mornings set the mood for the rest of the day.
If I can feed the boys tasty, healthy pancakes and waffles and all I have to do is pop it in the microwave, I’m all about it.
