Thomas the Train and A Cup of Coffee

There are just some mornings where a little tv and a cup of coffee can really go along way.  I am finding that even though most mornings that I rise before my son, I still need a moment once he is awake to feel more ready for the day.

There are days when I am ready to go when he is, but there are other days, where an extra 20 minutes can really go along way.  And sometimes, extra snuggles on the couch together are what we both need.

I will admit, that our son watches tv and does plan an occasional ipad game.  But, I do try to keep it limited to the amount of time.  And if he uses one of them in the morning, they don't get used in the afternoon.

But lately, I've needed a few extra minutes just to feel human and be ready to go mentally for the day.  A good cup of coffee, snuggles on the couch, and watching a little Thomas helps me ease more into the day. 

If I can ease into the day, I am more on my game for the rest of the day.  When I am thrown into the day, it feels hectic and stressful all day until my head hits the pillow.  It may not look like it on the outside, but I sure feel it on the inside.

Sometimes, we all just need that extra  moment to be ready for what the day has to bring.  How do you get going in the morning?
