I love to see what other people do in the mornings and how they get their days started. I have gotten a question about what I do in the mornings in regard to work, Liam, etc so today I am sharing our current morning routine.
Current Morning Routine
Once I am up I wash my face, brush my teeth, and get dressed. 99% of the time I am in workout clothes. I am usually up a good 90 minutes before Liam and I try to use this time to my advantage. First things first: coffee! I went to Target recently (OK when am I not at Target?) and I grabbed a few boxes of the Laughing Man® Coffee: the Colombia Huila and the Ethiopia Sidama single origin varieties. I like to try something new every now and then, and this fit the bill. Fun fact for all you Greatest Showman fans — Laughing Man® Coffee was co-founded by Hugh Jackman after an inspiring visit to Ethiopia where he met a young coffee farmer named Dukale. Inspired by Dukale’s optimism and determination, Hugh was committed to improving the lives of coffee farmers by sharing their Fair Trade Certified™ coffees with the world. So, I mean how can you not buy it? One thing I love is that every time you enjoy a cup of Laughing Man® Coffee, you make a positive impact, because a portion of the proceeds from your purchase goes right back into the communities that grow the coffee beans. All four varieties of Laughing Man® Coffee are Fair Trade Certified™, and their K-Cup® pods in the new packaging are recyclable. Plus, they’re all available at Target and on Target.com. I am a big online shopper so I am glad to know I can get this coffee online in a pinch and have it at my door in a few days.
Once I make my coffee and oatmeal, I usually enjoy them while checking my email, promoting that day’s blog post, and possibly watching a show from the night before that I have on our DVR.
I try to fold laundry if there’s some in the dryer from the night before, and prep Liam’s breakfast and lunch for the day so it’s easy and done. I also clean up the kitchen a bit from my breakfast while sipping on my Laughing Man® Coffee. YUM! It’s amazing that one simple decision in the morning can start my day off right. I am drinking delicious coffee that is good for my taste buds and good for the world.
Liam is up at 7 and it’s go go go from there. We usually read a few books, I get him dressed, then he has breakfast. After breakfast I put the rest of my coffee in a to-go mug and we head out on our walk. I love that I can easily make this coffee at home to take on our walks. It’s starting to feel a lot nicer outside in the mornings too! We meet up with our friends, walk, and hit the park!
Once we are home, we play inside or out back with the water table till lunch time.
You might be asking when I work? Well, I do have help a few days a week in the late mornings but this is after our walk so our mornings are almost always the same! I also work during nap times, and once Andrew is home from work, and after Liam is asleep!
What is your current morning routine like?
