I Don't Do Mornings

This is sponsored content by BlogHer and Kelloggs.



When I was a kid, my mom would get up, have her coffee while reading the paper, pay the bills, water her garden, make a few phone calls, cook me and my sister a hot breakfast, run 5K, learn a foreign language, discover life on another planet, and shave her legs all before 5:00AM. I, on the other hand, slept. And slept. And slept. And hit the snooze. And slept. And slept. And hit the snooze. Well, you get the idea. My mom would come in and whip the covers off me. I'd sleep. She flip up the window shades. I'd sleep. She spray my face with water. I'd sleep. She'd yell at me to get up. I'd sleep. She'd dump a bucket of water on me. I'd get up, but I wouldn't be happy about it and I'd make sure everyone with whom I came in contact experienced the full extent of my unhappiness.

Not much has changed. My mom still gets up before the birds. I still hit the snooze a dozen times before dragging my butt out of bed and shuffling through the house with my eyes closed. I'm thirty-ten years old. I'm pretty sure it's safe to assume I will never be one of those dreadful morning people. However, I have to admit, there's a part of me that would really like to be a morning person. I'd love to get up and have time to shower and dress before my kids woke up. I'd love to sit down with them and have a nice conversation over a hot, cooked-to-order breakfast. But that's never going to happen. I've accepted it. That's what dinner is for.

My mornings are always going to be rushed. I'm always going to wait until the last possible second to get out of bed. I'm probably always going to be less-than-pleasant in the morning. Hot breakfasts will always be reserved for weekends and special "Breakfast for Dinner" nights. But I'll still insist my kids eat something before heading off to school. Sometimes it's yogurt or a piece of fruit. Sometimes it's frozen waffles. Sometimes those waffles are even eaten frozen. Literally. Seriously, Clay ate a frozen waffle straight from the freezer and dipped in mayonnaise. Gag! But most often it's cereal. Cereal with milk is lower in calories than say, bacon & eggs, a croissant, or a bagel with cream cheese. Cereal is fortified with vitamins and minerals your kids need. In fact, I know my kids wouldn't come close to getting the recommended daily intake of vitamins and minerals without their morning bowl of cereal most days.

I'd love to say that I make sure our mornings are chock-full of quality, bonding time, but it would be a big fat lie. I save the quality time for moments when I'm actually awake and functioning. Mornings are spent quietly rushing around, eating a quick breakfast, and getting out the door. Sometimes the kids even have their backpacks, glasses, homework, and shoes when they leave the house!

Me? My morning run best if I sleep until the baby wakes up...and don't wake up a second before ;)

Jen said...

I actually enjoy mornings.....to some extent. I get up at 6:30am (5am is alittle too early for me!) but I go downstairs and get my coffee and pack the kids lunches. Then I chill by myself until the kids get up. I make sure they are getting dressed and then they tell me what they want for breakfast.....cereal, fruit, pancakes, eggs.....the amount of time we have dictates what they can have. :) They usually have about 10-15 minutes to play after getting ready and eating breakfast. We hang out and chill until it's time to leave for the bus stop. I enjoy my mornings with them.

Love the pic...
I have tried morning breakfasts.. but I realise on thsoe days that I do get up early, I tend to do chores around the house than just sit and enjoy breakfast.
However, my daughter and I tend to eat our mornign fruit together now!
Bonding = dinner time.. thats when we both are in the mood for chitter chatter!

Cara! said...

I would have to agree with Myrnie! My day starts no sooner than it has to! Luckily my husband takes care of the baby when he wakes up and the oldest boy fixes his own breakfast and wakes up on his own!

Sue said...

Im one of those annoying early birds. I get up at 5:20, put on the coffee, start breakfast, usually oatmeal or scrambled eggs. Make lunches, sandwiches, cut up fruit, a baked item for three. That was hubby and I have a half hour to talk about either yesterday, or what is up for today. He is off to work at 6:20, son is off around 6:40, daugher around 7. Time for second cup of coffee.

Anjie said...

Since I am not a morning person either, I make sure breakfast is served by my husband. If I had to get the kids breakfast it wouldn't be considered quality time.

leaner said...

Hubby and I wake up at 6ish and watch the news/drink coffee for an hour before waking up the children. One is a morning person, she gets up easily and is pleasant to be around. The other? Well she sounds like you. I have to yell to get her out of bed, usually more than once (and she is only 9).
We have a strict routine and the kids know it. I also make sure that we have hot water in the kettle for oatmeal or tea if they want it.
I am not, by the way, a morning person.

Bianka said...

Well, here we wake up at 630am and I start getting my oldest 6yo ready. Make breakfast quickly, usually cereal/yogurt/fruit/toast/bagels, that kind of thing and then he's off to catch the bus at 715am. I start this all over around this time when my middle child gets up and ready for preschool. I am not a morning person either...lol

JillyBeanTM said...

I sleep until my 2 year old wakes up. Then I pull him into bed with me and pray to whomever is listening that he'll fall back asleep and I can get a couple more hours.

When he does decide it's time to be up for the day, I usually give him a bowl of microwave oatmeal with applesauce mixed in (gives him a fruit AND cools off the oatmeal so he doesn't have to sit there staring longingly at it while it cools off!). Some days he has a yogurt and toast, or toast and a banana. Every now and then he gets leftover mac and cheese or spaghetti-o's.

Stormimay said...

We do Zumba together to start off our school day and get all the wiggles out. Until I sprained my ankle.

Cyndy said...

I signed up for PM kinder...no I signed my kinder up for PM kinder and thus we have lovely mornings...well at least not rushed...this year :)

Shannon said...

Your mornings sound exactly like mine! Every single night I tell myself, "tomorrow will be different" NOPE.
I do like bringing my younger two into bed to snuggle when they wake up. My oldest wakes up rearing to go (didn't get that from me!) but the two little ones need some snuggle time. And I always have my cup of coffee!

Amy B. said...

I make sure I'm up before the kids get up and have breakfast ready to serve when they get out of bed.

Quality time in the morning? I'm not sure I understand that concept.

I don't do mornings. My contribution to healthy breakfasts consists of going to the grocery store to buy cereal, oatmeal, and milk during the week. Waking up with the kids, talking to them, seeing them off to school... That's more my husband's area.

The way I make sure I spend quality time with the kids is by sleeping through most the morning so I can do quality time in the afternoon and evenings.

Anonymous said...

I get up at least 20 minutes before my kids so I can have a few minutes to myself. I try and get 15 minutes with each of my girls every morning while doing their hair.

Jennifer Foster said...

My boys and I always talk in the car on our way to school.....what we expect for the day, how we're feeling, etc. It's only a 5 minute car ride, but I LOVE that little bit of talking time. Then we all walk to our classes together and I can't even look near their direction or they'd die of embarassment :)

Hantla said...

Pre bedtime routine. Set a timer for 15 min, Everyone lays out their clothes (including shoes and socks) gets backpack(and/or anything else they might need) set and ready to go. In the morning I get up 15 min before everyone else I get dressed for the day with the clothes I had out and get breakfast starte while everyone else gets dressed. Just 15 min on either side makes a world of difference!

LAMusing said...

Yes - morning people are dreadful- they mock us night owls. I don't have kids, but to make sure I have a healthy breakfast I shop carefully and always have fresh fruit and cereal available!

laureni used to be a morning person. now i have toddlers that still don't sleep through the night. So, i'm TIRED in the morning.
we save the bonding time for evenings at the dinner table.
Breakfast, that's usually bisquits (that the oldest fixed when HE woke up early), waffles, cereal, or oatmeal.

Carrie M. said...

I drive my kids to school every morning. Our bonding time is in the van. Thats when they really open up to me about things that are happening in school (since school is on their mind..lol). I learn more in the 15 minutes it takes to get to school than I do in the 4 hours I get home after work/school. Amazing!!

Simple Country Girl said...

I am like you and not a morning person. Our mornings are usually spent rushing too, but we do have a few moments where my two daughters and I are all getting ready together. Sometimes they love on each other; sometimes they fight. You just never know what mornings will bring at our house.

Katie said...

I can't say that I really focus on having a positive interaction in the morning...all of us sleep as late as we possibly can without having my daughter be late to school. We're all just rushing around like crazy people, basically. I do try to remember to tell her to have a good day and kiss her goodbye! I do make sure she eats a good breakfast, even if she has to finish it in the car. :)

Pam said...

I make sure and set my alarm to have time to shower before the kids are up, then i am awake enough to have my coffee and visit with them as they prepare for their day. Weekends however, we can bond later in the day!

Mami2jcn said...

I wake up an hour before the kids and get their breakfast prepared for them. I sit with them at breakfast and chat about what they'll be doing in school that day.

Tech Mama said...

I'm trying to do better with getting up, showered and dressed before the kids wake up, but so far it hasn't been going well. To make up for the fact that I'm staggering around and monosyllabic most of the morning, I follow my mom's rule about mornings. No one leaves our house w/o at least one hug & kiss. It might not be "quality" time, but you are loved.

Just call me b said...

I try to get up earlier than they do, and get my morning all sorted out...before everyone wakes up!

I try to do a great job at breakfast in the mornings, but sometimes...not so good!

marythemom said...

My youngest is a MorningGlory, but all the rest of us are Slugabeds. Hubby gets up and acts as a human alarm clock for all the rest of us (including me). I get ready for work while Hubby takes the youngest to school (if I'm lucky I see them for a hug) - I have no idea what the youngest eats, but his lunch period is at 10:45am so I'm not too worried (about him being hungry in the morning).


The teens (girls, 14 and 15, and boy 17 yr) rarely eat. They might slam down dinner leftovers if it was good (pizza), but most of the time they whine about stomach aches and there being no "good food" in the house.

So I would love to be picked for the $100 gift card. I promise to use most of it to buy "good food."

If I don't make breakfast my daughter will not make it for herself. So I make sure to get her breakfast ready so she can eat.

Juneau Poole Party said...

I try to get the kids input so they enjoy their breakfasts, it makes it run smoother - they only get their choice suger cereals on Saturdays (can't watch Saturday morning cartoons without a bowl of sugar!), so they are okay with healthier selections during the week.

Betty N said...

I am a morning person so I am up before anyone else and have my bowl of cereal in peace and quiet. I can look forward to each new day and the joys and challenges it will bring My kids were breakfast eaters and I always had time to fix breakfast for them

Deb said...

Oh the weekdays, there is no such thing as quality time....we are all rushing to get out the door by 7am....but we do have a big family breakfast on Saturday mornings after we've all slept in after a long week.

Jennai said...

I get up before the kids to get myself together, then I am able to devote myself entirely to them. I ensure they get a good breakfast by offering them choices -- letting them pick the kind of cereal they want or maybe what kind of topping on a bagel.

We have 5 kids to get out the door in the morning, so having clothes laid out, lunches made and a healthy but quick breakfast is vital. After we get the "work" part done, we may even have time for the kids to watch a show.

Brooke said...

Human children? In the mornings, I usually give my four-legged kiddos rub downs - they wiggle with delight and it brightens my morning. I like to think it's good for everyone.

They always have breakfast... usually cereal or waffles.

tommygirl said...

I have two teenages daughters now, so I expect them to get up and get their own breakfast, which is usually Cereal or toaster waffles, and I have learned to not speak unless spoken to, and to stay out of the way. Haha.....

Garth and Becky said...

My mornings go best when I get up before the kids and get my shower. Then I am ready to greet them and get them started on their day.

Kauseks said...

I occasionaly put peanut butter on the kids pop tart.. thats healthy right.. I sadly am not a morning person.. I do try to catch up with the kids right after school though

KathyGTwins said...

I'm one of those morning people you love to hate :-) I get up before the kids and either run or shower then get breakfast stuff out and start coffee. I wake kids up and we eat together before I start exhorting them to get ready for school.

The A Team Mom said...

We have a family prayer where we ask for specific help during the day for each person in our family. Sometimes it happens in the car though if we are running late!

I'm totally NOT a morning person either. I sleep at least another 30 to 40 minutes after my husband gets up when his alarm goes off. (I could sleep longer, but he wakes me up). Fortunately, the kids don't start school until 9:15 this year rather than 8am like they used to. I'm grumpy in the morning so our morning routine usually consists of me telling the kids over and over again to eat breakfast, brush their teeth and hair, get their lunchboxes and backpacks and get their butts in the van before I get really angry. Mornings are just NOT fun around here, unless I promise to stop for donuts on the way to school if they hurry. Then it's better but I only do that once or twice a month. Can't let them eat that all the time.

Jen said...

Planning the night before is key. If I want muffins the next day, I'll mix all the dry ingredients together and group the wet ingredients next to each other in the fridge. I'll think ahead: sometimes I'll pop the muffins in before I shower, sometimes I have to wait until after my shower. It's all in the planning!

Kerry said...

I try to help them make good choices in the morning on what to eat to help them get through until lunch time. We usually talk a bit over breakfast and go over some last minute studying if needed.

Ugh..mornings. When I want to have a good day, I wake up 15 minutes before I get my 14 year old daughter out of bed and have a Diet Coke and relax before the chaos starts. My daughter is not the most pleasant person in the morning and it's a bad combo if I'm cranky too....much better for me to psych myself up for 15 minutes before she gets out of bed.

I'm also a huge breakfast pusher...that's my one pet peeve..making sure my daughter eats breakfast before she leaves the house.

Barbarawr said...

Quality time in the morning??? I can't even come up with a good lie for that question. We are not morning people. The goal is to get out and get to school with as little fuss as possible. There is plenty of time in the afternoon and evenings for quality time.

But I do cater to their breakfast needs. My daughter can't eat before getting on the bus and the healthy, homemade muffins I used to give her made too many crumbs in her purse, so I've given up and let her take a bagel every day. My son gets 2 PopTarts, Instant Breakfast, 2 strips of bacon, and a glass of milk every day to tide him over until lunchtime- LOL.

I get up early because of neccessity, though left to my own devices I wouldn't wake up till noon.
I get everyone, breakfast served and out the door. Cereal and granola bars are a godsend on busy mornings. Pop Tarts are also helpful in a pinch.

Then after everyone leaves I have a quiet moment to read my newspaper and drink my coffee.
