An Unofficial Poll, for all you stay-at-home-moms
Being that I'm not a morning person (ahem...can we say understatement?), I'm curious to see how those of you who stay home with children greet your day.
Do you use your kids as an alarm, or try to get up before them? Do you eat with your family, or by yourself before everyone wakes, or not at all? Do you do your chores right away? Do your kids do theirs? If you homeschool, do you jump right into that? Do you begin the day with reading, alone and/or with your children? What times are all these things happening?
We're about to enter a new era around here, and I think one of the big things that needs to be adjusted is how I run the first part of our day. I'm so used to using a baby for an alarm, that I almost don't remember how to set mine! But that's probably something that needs to change now that I have a late-sleeping baby.
I'd appreciate hearing from you in the comments, especially if you have a morning routine that you love, or have some suggestions for what NOT to do.
