All Before 8:00 AM

Each morning, our routine rolls like this:

  • 6:00 AM- our sweet doggie wakes up and starts licking his paws.  Slurp, slurp, snort.  I turn around and go back to sleep
  • 6:45 AM- alarm goes off. Husband jumps out of bed and I lay there willing myself to get up and go to work
  • 6:55 AM- I'm up eventually and get dressed- start part 1 of getting ready.  I take showers at night, so that's not a part of my routine.
  • 7:00 AM- Waffle time! I make my husband waffles every.single.morning.  He's out with the dog before 7:00 so I make a warm breakfast.  He eats his with almond butter, honey, and flax seeds in sandwich form
  • 7:20 AM- meanwhile, I run back and forth, packing lunches for both of us, looking for my shoes, checking work email, and start making my breakfast.
  • 7:30 AM- The boys come back- Chino gets his breakfast and come over to beg while I eat mine. 

And the point of this post?  My breakfast this morning:
Whole grain bagel, 2 eggs prepared in the microwave, avocado, and Frank's Red Hot Sauce.  Do it now.

What is your morning routine like?

My routine consists of this:
5:30 little guy wakes up, hubby gets him dressed and I get dressed for work.

6:00 I feed the little guy while hubby gets ready for work

6:20 Little guy plays with toys/watches Sesame Street, hubby eats breakfast and I make coffee, gather bags for work, etc.

6:50 Leave with hubby and little guy to drop him off at the sitter's.

P.S. You are SUCH a great wife for making hubby waffles every day!
