After reading the wonderful Becca from My Girls and Me do a morning routine, I couldn’t resist doing one myself.. so here is my morning routine..
Any time between 3am and 6am R wakes up, I either get really lucky and she just wants her dummy, or I get unlucky and she requires the full haul of the milk/nappy change fun, She either goes back to sleep or doesn’t.. it truly is a luck of the draw!
6:30am… my alarm goes off, depending on how the hours before alarm o’clock, i either get up and feel awesome…or I am a utter zombie, I can usually here K and A playing or arguing around this time, but they often play well together so.. as I said, depending on how things went, I either get up and get ready, or snuggle back into bed.. if I do that then..
7:12am.. Mr S’s alarm goes off.. time to get up!
7:20/30am.. breakfast time for all, just before breakfast K and A get themselves ready for school, I will leave their clothes out when they go to bed so its easier for them to get dressed and they are often ready before breakfast, R is always still in her sleep suit during breakfast as it limits how much washing that needs doing later!
8:15.. Mr S takes the children to Breakfast club, yes two breakfasts!, well its more of a before school club really, I wish I knew of this when I had R as it would’ve made mornings a lot easier
8:30/40am .. I give R a bottle of milk and let her sit in her bed while I go have a nice bath, I have been obsessed with Imperial Leather ‘Cherry Bakewell’ bubble bath, it smells exactly like Cherry Bakewells! you can almost taste the pastry! go buy it!
8:50/9:00am .. GET DRESSED and get myself a cuppa tea! I pop some Cbeebies on for R and I set up my laptop and start doing my makeup.. I love being ready, even if I have no plans to leave the house, I am ready before half 9, getting my makeup and doing my hair makes me feel a little more human sometimes.. more so after an early start..
and that’s my morning routine, pretty boring and basic but I love how chill it can be, the morning of the first day back at school was crazy, we go up late and we rushed about like headless chickens!!
Sometimes R doesn’t nap during the mornings but usually she does, its nice when she does as I can be busy without Tornado R destroying things!
Until next time.
