I don’t know about you, but I hate mornings. Probably because I don’t give myself time to really wake up, I just hop out of bed and go. I know, I know, I need to at least stretch first.
Make Your Bed
The first thing I do when I wake up and get out of bed is to make the bed. I feel like if your bed is made, your room just looks cleaner. It also makes me not want to lie in it and mess it up.
Secondly is tidying up, I go around the room and pick up trash or any dishes from the night before (if I didn’t do it the night before). Then I go into the girls’ room and do the same thing, pick up toys, trash, etc.
Next is family brush teeth time, that’s self-explanatory — we brush our teeth. Then we all take our vitamins, the girls take a multivitamin, I’m currently taking vitamin d and b12 alongside my birth control.
Time to Eat…Hopefully
After all of that is done, it’s time for breakfast. Sometimes I ask what the girls want and sometimes I just make them something. Half the time they ask for stuff they think they want and they don’t even eat it. *rolls eyes* Moms know what I’m talking about, but I digress.
Cross Your Fingers
Lastly, I make me and sometimes my husband some food — he’s very picky. Or he’ll go out and get all of us some breakfast. Those are my favorite mornings lol. Anyways, I like to eat last because since the kids are completely taken care of I should be able to eat in peace and with no interruptions.
Once everyone is fed and all is calm it’s time to get into our daily activities. Whether it be a doctor’s appointment, family function, or our weekly outing. If we don’t have anywhere to be we’ll get started on our version of “homeschool”. (I use that term loosely and in quotations because we don’t have a strict curriculum.) That involves reading, doing some worksheets, or playing educational games on their fire tablet.
I don’t have the girls on a strict “homeschooling” schedule because we’ve tried that before and let me tell you no one benefited from it. I’ll tell ya’ll about that in another post.
You’re probably wondering why caffeine wasn’t mentioned at all. I mean as a mom with two kids, you’d expect me to be drinking something caffeinated, right? Well, I gave up caffeine years ago because of my anxiety and it was the best thing ever — kind of. But that’s another post for another time lol
