I have 2 small kids under age 2. My mornings are just really dramatic. I wake up, they wake up, scream because both want to be held. I am trying to fix breakfast, stop them from screaming, change their diapers, fix my coffee (a need) etc etc. Those are just the mornings. How in the heck do moms get out for playdates in the morning? I can't even gets things running smoothly at home. I have been trying to exercise during the day but can't seem to find a spare minute. I put them down for naps around noon but then I have to choose between cleaning, cooking, relaxing or exercising. Most times I just want to relax. So this morning I tried waking up an hour earlier, before the kids wake up, to exercise and take a shower. I do succeed at finishing my exercise routine (30 min long) and finish my shower just in the nick of time. But honestly, it just felt weird to exercise straight after waking up. I was half asleep while working out. I may have to move that to nights after kids are in bed. The second I step out they are screaming! Of course, I dry off and get dressed and hit the ground running! As calm as I act with them and I don't put up with bad behavior, things are still just so crazy!! Help! What are your mornings like? Any tips?
