Those small victories that make my morning #MorningWin

October 12, 2014

Sometimes life resembles a scene or two from the film Groundhog Day. The relentless getting up earlier than we would like, making breakfast, making packed lunch boxes and ensuring everyone is organised for the day.

There is however some relief from these relentless mornings, those small victories that make my morning…

Sleeping until the alarm clock sounds – both Roo and Tigger have always been early birds, if they manage to sleep past 7am I think Christmas has come early.

Toast / Cereal / Fruit breakfast debate – every morning I ask Roo and Tigger what they want for breakfast, the mornings that actually give me a decision within a minute is a definite #morningwin.

Clean school uniform – Roo bless her heart is clean, mess free little girl, the same cannot be said for Tigger… he somehow manages to get dirty in a white room so if we can make it out the door before he has messed up his school uniform it is a bonus.

School reading book read the night before – please tell me I am not the only one who has listened to their child read in the car on the way to school and frantically signing their reading record before they head in the school gates.

Pleasing the school run gods – squeezing in two different school runs and getting to work within 30 minutes can be a little tight, however there are those mornings when I’m in favour the school run gods and I arrive at work a little early. I, of course sit in my car for those blissful few minutes munching my hazelnut belVita breakfast biscuits and have one last check on social media.

    You reminded me of a lot of the things I don’t miss now we have embarked on our home education journey. Well done you on pulling off the challenge and like most mums you deserve a medal as well as a biscuit.

    I am so sorry honey those really made me giggle. I feel exactly the same minus the school stuff as none haven’t started yet. Feel free to laugh back at me next September x

    This is sooo true for me too. Love the pleasing the traffic Gods bit, doing two school drop offs must be a right pain, poor you! Dragging along a 3 and a 1 yr old on the school run for my eldest means that a victory for me is the 1yr old not doing a last minute evil poo, or it NOT hammering down with rain. Needless to say neither thing happens that frequently. Got to appreciate these small blessings hey!!!
