Zoom Meetings, Anxious Sleep, Distance Learning, Oh My!
Whatever your reason for struggling with mornings, I hear you, mamas.
I always laugh and cringe when productivity experts recommend moms “get up half an hour earlier” so they can start their day quietly, get a shower, and be fresh when the kids wake up.
Methinks the productivity experts don’t have children???
My husband and I find that if we seek a little morning solace time, those are always the mornings the kids get up unnaturally early, and we start our day angry and frustrated instead!
With a whole new sort of morning chaos, quarantine has been tough on a lot of families — but it also provides some silver linings.
Many of our cooking class families report that their kids finally have time to make breakfast, and the parents have been able to:
- Start the morning off slowly with reading, prayer, or meditation
- Attend morning meetings “at work” without interruption
- or even…sleep in!
Lately my husband and I have been choosing the pillow, and many mornings, my 8-year-old has fed himself and his 5-year-old brother breakfast and finished his daily required math and reading on Google classroom.
That kind of magic didn’t just happen, but it only takes a little intentional training.
