If my day starts off on the wrong foot, it sets the tone for the whole day for me. This is why I do everything I can to have a great start in the mornings. This starts the night before. I know all you moms out there know exactly what I’m talking about….
I get up between 5:30-6:00am during the week to get us ready for the school/work day. Some days getting my son out of bed is a Herculean task.
First thing is breakfast, then getting dressed, teeth brushed, grab backpack (Tip: Get backpack ready the night before), and finally get into the car. I come back home for a little housework, and then I work until 2:30pm when I have to stop to go pick my son up from school. Then provide a snack, homework (help him if he needs it), dinner, run him to play rehearsal (or whatever extra-curricular activity he is into), sometimes another snack, shower, get ready for bed. Tons of other things sprinkled into my days, and I sure couldn’t do it without a great start to my day.
