It’s 7am here in Oklahoma and, for the first time, I am actually up before my son. I am often times awake before Little Man wakes up but never am I actually out of bed being productive in any sort of way. My usual routine is to lay in bed until Little Man begins to wake and then I get up and brush my teeth real quick, splash my face with water and then straight into the nursery. You see, I’m not a morning person. I’m also not a night owl. In my natural state, I am a mid-morning-to-rise and early-to-bed kind of gal…always have been. You can imagine my daily struggle. LOL
I’ve had many other Mompreneurs tell me that they get up before the kids daily and that they are typically the most productive with that brief window of time. Now, I’m sure they are absolutely right! And I can see what they’re talking about. I feel great right now being able to type this blog post with a sleeping baby in the next room. And I’d love to say that I’ll do the same tomorrow. I’d love to say that I’m going to get up 30 minutes before Little Man every day so that I can have my quiet time with the Lord before the daily grind begins. I can certainly try. But, let’s be honest, I’ll probably fail more than I succeed. Not for lack of motivation or desire but, mainly, because trying to get me out of bed before 7am is like trying to pull gum out of your hair. Not to mention, having a husband who could sleep through a tornado sleeping next to you really makes your bed feel extra cozy in the mornings.
So, we will see what tomorrow holds. But, for now, I’m going to enjoy this morning’s peaceful silence and the stillness that currently fills my home. Little Man just so happens to STILL be asleep but, The Husband is now awake. I guess he can only remain in his sleeping-like-a-log state if I’m laying in the bed too. Oh well…
Until next time Mommas 🙂
