I am not a morning person. I think its because I stay up late at night working. It’s quiet and for some reason, I feel more creative at night than in the daytime. I normally do things around the house during the day or work on Sweetgrass Roots so I save my blog for the night. Our morning routine starts at 5:45 in the morning. I have an alarm set because although I can get up early I can’t get up that early. I wake the baby up first since she usually gets up on the first wake up call. Dman, on the other hand, is slow to get up he walks around like a snail.
Most mornings I fix breakfast at home. What do we normally have? Cereal, Bagels, PopTart, Sausage biscuit, muffins, and their favorite oatmeal. ( I can’t stand oatmeal at all eeewwww) BTW do your kids eat like 2 packs per bowl or is it just mines?
After breakfast, we normally sit around and either watch the news, talk about what is expected of each child for the day, or finishing up HW. Then we are off to the car. Sons school is about 15 minutes from me but with traffic and school buses, I leave home 30 minutes early just to give me extra time just in case something goes down.
Kids normally go back to sleep but occasionally you will hear a conversation like this
Zaza: Mom can we stop to Dunk (dunkin donuts) and get a donut
Me: No not this early
Zaza: Why oh I know cause we will be hyper and we don’t want that
Dman: But we are already hyper it may calm us down
Me: No….no it won’t. But then again Y’all going to school so I can stop because it won’t be my problem once I drop you off
Dman: So you gonna stop
Me: probably not people are always in line up there and we don’t have time to wait (normally the line pours out into the street, its the only coffee place out here in the country so everyone flocks to it)
Dman: *whispers to Zaza* I wonder if mom would be hyper if she had coffee cause my teacher is very bright in the mornings and it’s too early for that.
