I know I’m not the only one running out the door at the very last second praying that there isn’t a huge drop-off line at daycare or that no one will notice if my voicemail turns off at 8:05 versus 8:00 once I arrive at work. As much as I want to, lately I just cannot seem to get it together in the mornings. I spend every spare minute in bed (my joints are ready for the chilly winter mornings to go away) which leaves me rushing to get myself ready, Abby ready for daycare, and keep the dogs from driving me batty. This of course can be avoided if 1) I actually get out of bed when my alarm goes off and/or 2) Plan the night before to keep the morning routine as simple and stress-free as possible. Planning the night before could involve laying out my clothes for work (which includes ironing), laying out Abby’s clothes, and making sure her daycare bag is ready to go. Sounds simple enough right? So why can’t I get it together?
So I have searched the interwebs and come across these wonderful posts from moms (including spoonie moms) on how to simplify your morning routines so that you can actually leave the house with a smile instead of a frenzy!
