Every night I try and clean up the kitchen, because nothing starts my day off worse than walking into a messy kitchen! Then I prep the coffee pot, because nothing puts a smile on my face at 5:30 like coffee! Lastly I set the kitchen table. I don't put dishes on it tho, I put a craft for the kids. The first day I just put out some crayons and colored paper wondering if it would buy me time to sit with my cup of coffee. It did!! I even got to watch a little bit of the news! I was so excited the next night I thought I'd try again this time I put out play dough and some cookie cutters. Again a cup of coffee and at least 1/2 hour of news later we were all much happier people then the week before.
I took some pics to let you enjoy my morning routine as much as I do! :)
|I didn't think to photo the play dough pre kids! :)|
|What the table looks like before...|
|What it looks like after!|
|I love that they are doing something together!|
|I didn't leave these on my table like this but one morning they woke to a make your own breakfast!|
