Bedtime has just not been coming early enough. With the weather changing life has become a little more rough.
We are adjusting to spending more time inside and a new schedule because my daughter started kindergarten this year. The first few days of truly bad weather that has kept us in which has been challenging.
We busted out play dough, a movie, and water time in the sink. It is time to pull some different ideas out for my special boy.
With only a few weeks into the school routine life has not caught up to it. By the time my daughter is off to school I have time to get a workout and shower in. Then it is too late to do anything because she only goes half days. Then it’s lunch and nap and the whole day feels shot.
I feel the urge to wake up even earlier and exercise and shower. But I have a hard enough time getting up as it is.
To anyone else out there who has never been a stay at home mother it is a lot harder than you think. There is no me time and we don’t leave our kids very often. Whoever said you get to sit around and eat bon bons must be rich. They would have to hire a chef, a maid, and nanny to do my job.
