Most nights I’m up until midnight no matter what time I need to get up. That being said before I had kids I was by no means a morning person. After kids I’m much more a morning person. BUT…(here it comes) although I hear my kids wake up at 6:45-7am I simply refuse to get out of bed and get them up right away. This is how it’s always been for them so they know nothing different but I basically ignore them until 8:30 rolls around.*
I will not get up before that unless ABSOLUTELY necessary. I don’t mind waking up and laying in bed listening to them chit chat away…I just don’t want to start my day before 8:30. And on most days the kidlets fall back asleep for at least a half hour.
|Sweet sleeping Colton...it's a little blurry but he was asleep and I wasn't about to wake him up. ;)|
|My big guy all tucked in!|
Any other moms out there that take some time to start the day and ‘allow’ the kids some quiet ‘me’ time?
*And so you know I'm not a complete bitch or neglecting my children please know that we have a video monitor and a regular noise activated monitor so I know exactly what is going on in their room at all times and they're in no way in any danger. Just thought that needed to be added.
|Nice and safe...promise!|
