Morning Routine for Toddlers and Up?
My daughter and I wake up everyday around 7 or 8 in the morning. My first thought is to get something to eat lol. I don't care if I'm half asleep, I want food! But my daughter, on the other hand, takes a couple hours to get hungry. I don't force her to eat breakfast with me. She's usually fine with a big glass of milk in the morning then she'll wait until 9 or 10 to sit down and eat her breakfast. Then I make plans to do whatever, if it's my day off. I try not to rush her in the mornings anymore. I let her wake up and relax and get something to eat before getting her ready for the day.
What do you ladies do in the mornings?
I get Mini up around six so that she can get her shower and get dressed. I usually am on my first cup of coffee at this point, although sometimes I can't get to that if I am running around doing other things. She doesn't eat breakfast (I know, this is bad, she just can't do it though). I get Bub up around 7 and then run Mini to school.
By the time I get back (maybe ten minutes depending on traffic) he's ready for breakfast. I get him fed, showered, do homework and pack his lunch. Usually I am trying to get coffee in at this point again.
I run him to school around 8:30 and finally get to sit for a few minutes. Then I either start school work or start one of my two jobs. I like it busy though so mornings to me are great!
