I am not a morning person. I wish I was one of those people that pops out of bed, works out for a bit and then goes on about their day. I am not one to hit the snooze button over and over again, but I just don’t like to get up early. Mornings are also just so hectic. Once I’m up, I have to try and get my son out of bed even though he’s just SO tired. Sometimes he begs for me to lay with him and cuddle. If I have time, I’ll lay down and we will talk about what we’ll do that day. Other times I’m running behind and just tell him he needs to get up and eat. After I get my son up, I make him breakfast and then head in to get the girls. Then it’s diaper changing time times two and feeding them their bottles before I have to bring Hayden to school.
On the days that my husband is off work and it’s my turn to sleep in, I usually tell him if he will just do that morning routine and then I’ll get up with them. It’s the making of the bottles, changing diapers, making breakfast and getting everyone out the door that can be exhausting day after day.
Then, I was sick a few days. My husband was awesome and took over completely for me. And during those short few days, I realized that mornings might just be my favorite part of the day. Sure, it’s hectic but there’s nothing in the world like walking into my girls room and seeing these faces as they realize Mama is walking through the door.
How can I resist those two adorable faces each morning? How can I resist my son wanting some cuddle time? So I’ve decided to embrace mornings. While I appreciate those other moments during the day, there’s nothing like starting my day off with my 3 favorite little people.
