Wanna share your homeschool day in the life? Here’s your reminder and invitation to join us here next Monday and link up to your own post! We’d love to hear from you.
Creeping downstairs, already anticipating that first cup of hot coffee, I’m waking up to a clean slate. It is early when my day begins around here. If I’m lucky, I’ve got approximately 1 hour to an hour and 30 minutes before everyone is awake, needing me to be on my game.
What do I do with that early morning time? The one thing that pays off big time: momma self-care. Our day is better if I can nourish myself first thing. And not just because I have taken time to breathe and wake up and journal, but because my head is set to nurture.
My heart is always there — like yours, right? But if I can’t grab some margin first thing, it’s too easy for nerves to fray and tempers to flare. The overwhelm of motherhood doesn’t do an effective job if I wake to dark and quiet.
This morning no one wakes and I can rise and shine alone. I grab my coffee and bullet journal then free-write for a bit and look over the plan for the day. Bonus! There is still time for some checking in on social and reading two chapters of my current book.
I hear tiny footfalls and I know I’m on. 6:30 a.m. on the dot and it’s showtime!
