Wake up!

What does it look like for you in the morning? Our family wake-ups are always in motion; like waves. My husband Rob is sometimes home in the mornings and sometimes at the fire station. When he does come home from work it is always in the morning. Instead of the 50's style "dinner is almost done" he comes home to pajamas and pancakes...or most likely cereal. He likes cereal o.k.! On the weekdays because of school mornings take on a routine feeling regardless of who is home and who is not, but on weekends it's different. Most likely the kids are up before us watching tv for a bit until they start wrestling and waking everyone up. This results in a "talk" about morning behavior and then either Rob or I forcing ourselves to get up while the other one sleeps a bit more. And really, honestly, the allure of a good cup of coffee is the only reason I step out of my king sized sterns and foster pillow top bed. Maybe I need a lumpy bed. I guess what I'm saying is that mornings should be great. I know sleep is wonderful, but a new day, healthy kids, my own home....really I should be waking up completely grateful and happy. So I starting thinking about other people's mornings. Everyone of us has a different morning story and how interesting would it be to read about your mornings; the good and the bad. What you love about them and what you want to change about them. For me, I want to wake up more cheerful, how to achieve that....I'll get back to you.

  1. weekday routine
    6:00-6:15 wake up/shower
    6:30am get the big girls up
    6:35am get ready/waste time on twitter
    6:45am make sure the big girls are getting ready
    6:55am make sure the big girls are getting ready
    7:00am leave for work (if i'm lucky)

    so, i would definitely love to change how many times i have to check on the big girls. also...i hate waking up i'd love to have a job that requires me to wake up around 8:30...make out with sharon...and then start item #1 around 9am. that would be ideal for me. of course many things would need to change for that to happen...primarily....well....just take my word for it.
