I'm starting my days a bit differently than I have in the past. I now aim to wake up 15 minutes before the kids. I pad quietly downstairs and turn on the news. Yes news. I sit on the floor and stretch for five minutes. I take the other ten to unload the dishwasher and start a load of laundry.
It's been helping me so much to have a rough schedule for the day. It's been a lovely day so far - I did end up going to the drycleaners, the post office, and even got the car washed. But it's also important to include new and different things... Why?
Because when you're four, belly flops are fun.
