It's funny how, in the moment I captured this, Monday mornings felt like they were 300 hours long sometimes!
These two were totally awesome! I was often flying solo missions while my husband travelled extensively for work and most days, we didn't slide out of our pj's until lunchtime at best.
I didn't mind the slow mornings because the idea of getting up in a blaze to be out the door with kids in tow in the AM just didn't feel very peaceful or appealing to me so we were later morning or afternoon people most of the time.
Needless to say, there were times I felt like my entire life would forever revolve around meals, snacks, Dora and Diego, baby wipes, sippy cups and trying to get them clean in the dishwasher, car seats, naptimes, teething and baby food!
I am here to tell you that that moment is just that, a moment! I know you're tired, are you planning for rest? You don't need to be a superhero, you need to take care of yourself so you can take care of everyone else as well.
Babies and toddlers will love the curiosity of watching you take some stretches on the floor or wake yourself up with some jumping jacks or even roll out your mat and hangout in down dog.
Will it be the zen infused experience you would love at a beautiful downtown yoga studio? Probably not but you COULD burn some incense or diffuse some oil, dim the lights or find a sunny window and give it a shot! Better to do it than to not. It will provide you with energy and some love for you!
The little people in your life certainly command a 24/7 A game, that is every reason WHY you must make yourself a priority EACH AND EVERY DAY. You can't take care of others without first taking care of yourself!
And before you know it, you'll be discussing politics, freedom and equality, honesty and humility with those small humans that once clung to your leg.
And then you are the one clinging and learning to let go.
Take care, you!
