I don’t really consider myself a morning person. I’m
more of an I need to sleep until 10 am and take my time getting up and around
kind of person. But let’s be honest – I have at least another 10 years until
this will ever happen again. Toddlers and sleeping late just DO NOT go
Thankfully I don’t have one of those kids that are all bright eyed at 5 in
the morning! My little guy will sleep until 7:30-8 each morning and then just
wants to lie around for about 30 minutes before he is ready to get moving. And
although I would prefer to take the mornings easy, I have a thing called a job
and it requires me to get there before 10.
But since the time I have become a mom, I truly appreciate that hour of
“me time” when I get ready in the morning. My guys are still asleep
and it’s if I have the house all to myself. Of course I hate when my alarm goes
off, but it’s nice to know that during the week I have time to get ready
without stepping over construction trucks, answering questions, fetching
snacks, etc. For that short amount of time I can actually hear myself think!
It’s truly amazing – you should try it sometime.
I have learned to LOVE the mornings. But there is just one problem. When my
son decides to wake early and sit at my feet while I curl my hair all while
talking non-stop. Yes it’s sweet and loving that he wants to be near me – but
man is he messing up my entire morning routine! It makes me a crazy person.
Sure I should love this time and appreciate that he wants to talk to me
knowing one day he won’t want to do that. But I don’t! Mama needs her time and
if it means turning into a morning person, then so be it. Please tell me I’m
not the only one that feels this way?
