Today pretty much only consisted of errands:

I have been getting up about a half hour or so before my boys and it is really amazing how differently my days go when I do that. I wrote a post about a year ago about owning the day and taking charge of it before it takes charge of you. It's not always easy to do, and during this season of my life with young children, sometimes sleep is more important than having complete control of the days; but if I can swing it, it's a great way to start the day off right. I've started waking to use the bathroom at pretty consistent intervals at night and if the timing is right I just stay up after the last one. Waking on my own rather than being woken by Ayden or an alarm also makes a big difference in how I feel and I can feel that difference throughout the whole day.
Recital hubub starts tomorrow and things are going to pick up and get a little crazy for a few days. I love it and dread it all at the same time.
Does your child take a 2 or 3 hour nap everyday? Do you wake up before your family?
Flashback! Here's what we were up to one year ago today: "Respite"
