Breakfast Challenge

Some things I am starting today:
Waking up BEFORE the kids. I was hoping this would mean 1-2 hours before them (ie 6:30 or 7am).
For some reason, I can't seem to get up when the alarm goes off. I think it is because I don't HAVE to.
I dont HAVE to punch a clock, drop anyone off or be anywhere at any set time in the mornings so I don't make it a priority to be up early.

And it shows.

One of the blogs I am following is starting a morning challenge that I am determined to participate in.

Sure enough, as I am trying to get this blog typed up so I can follow my own progress, the kids are asking to be fed, for milk and a cup. Which is frustrating because the baby is sleeping on the bed and I don't want him to be woken up because I can't fix breakfast yet because I am nursing him, but then the 2 year old is crying that she is hungry, and I did not finish the blog because I was interrupted and they are already pulling toys out of the room...

It goes on and on and on and if I start the day frustrated by little people instead of calmed by The Holy Spirit, my whole day seems off. Not to mention I need to start preparing myself for homeschooling Lily in the fall.

So today is day 1 of rising before the kids. It may not have been early, but it was still before they got up! Pin It

  1. I love my morning time. I get it most mornings. I slept in this morning, a bit, until Jason woke me up making coffee. But I was still up before Jack. And when we are both up before Jack we actually get to do wonderful things like have an uninterrupted adult conversation. You will learn to treasure your mornings (I also treasure my evenings on the rare occasion I can get Jack to bed at a reasonable time)
