This last month I haven’t been waking up before the kids. I used to swear by it, said it was 1,000 percent necessary for me to be the best mom I can for these babes. Some days that may still be true, and I’ll set an alarm and get my but outta bed those days! However, some days for me to be the best mom it means waking up to this sweet girl in my face saying “wake up mommy, the sun is almost out!” 🌥 Sometimes it’s not about the hot coffee before they wake up, sometimes it’s about the hot coffee sitting at the table with my girl while she drinks her chocolate milk out of a coffee mug. .
It doesn’t have to be the same all the time friends. You can change your mind and routine to do what works for you in that season. (Mostly I’m saying this to myself because the first week or two I stayed in bed past my alarm I’d feel some sort of guilt about it.) Now I go to bed happily not setting an alarm if I don’t have to. And we are all better off for it. 💚 - 7 minutes ago
