As moms, we’re always trying to make life a little easier on ourselves. Why?Because once we're mothers, everyone is constantly demanding everything from us. Whether it’s our babies demanding to be fed, our preschoolers demanding we play with them, or our partners asking if we know where they left whatever, it’s always something. Even if we’re sick or in the shower or on the damn toilet, it never ends. Thankfully, there are some fool-proof ways to make your “mom mornings” easier. No, really. I promise, it's possible.
Sometimes, I fantasize about the perfect mornings. Hell, I even watch YouTube influencer videos on morning rituals. I'm obsessed with those things, and the thought of perfecting my morning routine. I know that stretching or, better yet, doing yoga first thing in the morning helps me have a better day. I know that I should be drinking a ton of water as soon as I wake up. I know that writing down some positive things in a journal is probably a nice way to consistently start my days.
But I’m also a mom, and most of these influencers appear to be, well, more like 20-something single and child-free folks who obviously have maids clean up after them. Sadly, I’m the only one who cleans up after me these days, and I have a lot on my plate as a busy mom with a business of her own with an equally busy partner to boot. So I’m not focusing so much on things that only have to do with me here, but rather, things that will simplify my (and your) experience as a busy mom.
