I love this post from Kayse Pratt on how they are starting their day in peace:
So, I’ve got a kid who gets up at 6:30 on the dot every.single.morning. (And that’s only because her clock turns green at 6:30, so she’s allowed to get up. Otherwise she’d be waking me up at 5:30 every day.) Fun stuff. My energetic girl is most definitely a morning person.
I am a morning person too; I crave the quiet peace of the early morning hours. But, since Emmy is such an early riser, that means I have to be an earliER riser!
Whether you’re an early riser or not, I think the idea of waking up BEFORE your kiddos and not TO your kiddos is pretty important. At least it is in my own life. If I’m up before the kids and have a little time to myself, I’m a much happier mommy all day. If I wake up to a tiny person staring at me from 2 inches away, I am not so happy.
Keeping my mornings sacred is a HUGE part of keeping our home a calm and peaceful…
