I have been told that the mom sets the mood for the home. And it's so true. The days I wake up late, rush to shower(which I hate doing), have dishes to do from yesterday and crayons all over the floor I feel flustered. Anyone else feel like this? My mood changes. And it affects my family. So I have discovered a few things that help set the mood for my home in the morning. Maybe they will work for you, I know they have for me!
- Do the dishes the night before! I hate waking up and seeing dirty dishes in the sink! I at least load the dish washer before bed
- Wake up before your kid(s). Take your shower and do your hair. I love having good hair days, and it takes time!
- Read a few verses or listen to some good music. Pray for your family. Again, before your kids are up!
- Eat breakfast with your family. I love eating cereal with Emma and sometimes Mike is with us if he hasn't gone to work yet. There is sometime so cute about a toddler with messy hair eating cereal. I just want to squeeze her!
What do you do in the morning????
