THE SMALL LUXURIES

It’s funny the luxuries I used to have pre mom days that I didn’t even know I had. What luxuries am I talking about? Oh the ones like taking a shower without your baby crying while in a bouncing seat a couple feet away. How about the luxury of drinking a cup of coffee in silence as you wake up. Ahhh . . . those were the good old days.

Well I think this week I have discovered a way to get all those wonderful luxuries back. The trick is to wake up early! For the past three days I have woken up 45-60 minutes before Vincent and Chloe. I use that time to enjoy a quiet shower, get ready for the day, make Vincent’s lunch for school and get Chloe’s food prepared. The best part about this new routine is that when Vincent and Chloe wake up in the morning, I am ready to focus on them and help them get their day started. With my old way of doing things, I was being woken up by them and then all of a sudden needed to get things going while I was still waking myself up. These past three days have been so nice and the mornings have moved smoothly without any issues.

Let’s raise our cups of coffee to cheer bringing the small luxuries back!
