My husband left for shift early this morning and since I was half awake, I decided I would get up and try to squeeze in some quiet time before the girls started stirring. See now, usually when I do this, I swear they just sense that I'm up and they follow suit. But not today! I've been up for an hour and I haven't heard a peep from them. So here I am, starting the day like old times and it feels UH-MA-ZING! I even painted my nails. :)
Before we had kids, one of my favorite things in the whole wide world was getting up early and enjoying a cup of coffee in silence while answering emails or perusing Pinterest. Now I'm just excited when I wake up five minutes before the littles so I can have a moment to find my bearings and pour the creamer in my coffee cup before I hit brew (it just doesn't taste right when I pour it in after - anyone else?).
I'm definitely an early bird and I'm usually much more productive in the morning than at night. So what are you - an early bird or a night owl?
