We have a rhythm in our home.
Our days are all pretty much the same.
The kids wake up and watch a show while I get up and moving.
Slowly the house starts to wake and get noisy.
Breakfast usually happens right away.
Liam is always hungry first thing in the morning. Maybe it’s a boy thing.
Getting dressed, making beds, and brushing teeth is soon to follow.
We usually start school around 9 o’clock.
We settle into the schoolroom until we are finished.
By then it’s snack time and all the littles are huddled around my legs as I dish out a snack in the kitchen.
The morning gets finished off with a marathon of “Mommy & Daddy” playtime by the big kids where I hear little voices calling each other “Liz & Mark” while tending to their imaginary household chores.
Sometimes, the baby joins in as well. Usually, I find her sneaking off to a quiet place to play independently.
Mornings are such a sweet time for me.
I love the slow pace we have set in our home.
