I never used to be a morning person, and sometimes I still question whether or not I actually am a morning person. What I do know is that early morning seems to be the only time that I am able to get some time alone. Do any other mamas have that problem? It seems like I am always with my kids, not that I don’t love them to pieces, but once in a while it would be nice to get up and drink a HOT cup of coffee, instead of the lukewarm cup I often get. And since we have no microwave…yeah…the coffee continues to get cold. While I love iced coffee, lukewarm is definitely not my favorite!
I always thought that in college I was a night person. I would stay up until all hours of the early morn with my roommate watching cheesy movies (which I absolutely love by the way! Bring It On…Yes please!). And then I would turn around and set myself up with 8am classes. I was convinced that if I could get all my classes done by noon I would have a much better college experience 🙂 But here I am, trying to now wake up when I used to go to bed in college…
I’ve joined in on a little challenge that you can find more about here. I am really excited about trying to have this alone time in the morning. Not that I haven’t tried before, but now I am signed up and have a group of people to be accountable to…and my husband is finally on board with me waking up SUPER early to have some alone time. I wish him luck. We co-sleep with our kiddos, and when one of us gets up, it tends to wake up the entire house 🙂
What about you? Do you like to wake up early? And how do you keep the kiddos in bed if they hear you waking up?
