Ahhh, the morning. So peaceful. So quiet. So goddamned early. Whose stupid idea was this morning stuff anyway?

Whether you love mornings or hate them, we all have routines and rituals that help get us started for the day.

At the moment, mine is:

HOPEFULLY 6.15 a.m.: Baby wakes, I nurse him, then play with him, for a little bit while husband showers.
6.45 a.m.: Husband returns from shower, takes baby, I get to bathe wheeeeee!
7.00 a.m.: Get dressed, get baby to high chair.
7.15 a.m.: Attempt to put baby food inside baby. Sometimes this is just a purée that I spoon feed him, and sometimes we do something called baby led weaning, where you just… give the kid food. And you let them pick it up, and squish it in their tiny hands, and throw it, and hopefully get it to their mouths, and try to chew it with their gums, and if you're really lucky actually eat some! While the baby is doing this I also try to smash a coffee (oh man I need it so bad) and a banana smoothie for breakfast (so fast and easy).
7.30 a.m.: Husband leaves for work, we say "bye bye!". Take baby to window and let him watch daddy drive away while trying to encourage him to wave.
7.45 a.m.: Read a story to the baby, then sing songs, and start taking him to get ready for a nap.
8.00 a.m.: Trying to put the baby down for a nap. Usually the easiest one of the day. While waiting for him to self-settle/confirming that he's actually asleep, I make the bed in the dark (he's still in our bedroom at the moment), and I put hand cream on my hands to try to stop them cracking from all the hand washing I do after nappy changes.
8.05 a.m.: Sit in the lounge room for a moment in disbelief that the baby is asleep and I can do ANYTHING I WANT while he naps. Maybe have more coffee. Brush my teeth. Squander the time… (this is what I'm doing right now)

Soooooo, what do your mornings look like?

7:45: (MAZE OF DEATH FROM ROCKMAN 9 PLAYING VERY LOUDLY)
7:50: okay fine i'm awake, christ
8:00: okay now i'm actually awake, time to not get out of bed and read twitter
8:20: shit. i should probably shower, huh. i'll do that
8:40: ok shower done and i'm about to be late, better run
8:45: go to work


On the weekends this is mostly just "whenever: wake up and not get out of bed for hours". I am a very boring person

It's OK, if I keep letting him crush fruit in his hands and throw breakfast cereal on the floor, he'll learn to feed himself eventually.

7:52 AM: My old phone blares Sanctuary until I roll over and figure out where it is so I can mash the snooze button
Repeat 5/10/30 minutes later up to 5 times, depending how tired I am that day / if I work
8:48 AM: My new phone buzzes silently with an alarm that I've labeled "Go to work, probably", but also serves to remind me to take my HRT at the same-ish time each day and therefore goes off every day whether I work or not
8:49 AM: Start scrolling through Twitter and playing Fallen London.
8:59 AM: Get bored of Twitter and run out of actions in Fallen London.
9:13 AM: "Go to work, probably" goes off again if it's a work day. If I didn't actually take my HRT the first time, do it now. If I still haven't brushed my teeth, do it now.
9:38 AM: "Go to work, probably" goes off a third time. Now I have to leave.
9:50 AM: Arrive at kwik trip. Buy whatever's on sale for breakfast. Remind myself I'm trying to drink less soda, but probably buy a soda anyway.
10:02 AM: Gotta start walking to the bus stop if I'm going to catch the 10:08 bus.


ALTERNATE FORM
If I need to shower in the morning and it's a work day, it goes like this instead:
7:52 AM: My old phone blares Sanctuary until I roll over and figure out where it is so I can mash the off button
7:56 AM: Well, that's enough lying here feeling miserable. I need to shower and that always takes forever, so shower.
7:57 AM: Take hormones, unless I forget. Do internet things "for just a minute" if I'm feeling risky.
8:01-8:13 AM: Depending on how much executive function I had to work with this early in the morning. Start showering.
8:48 AM: "Go to work, probably" goes off. I'm still in the shower, so I ignore it.
8:54 AM: Finish showering. Brush teeth. Take hormones if I forgot earlier.
9:13 AM: "Go to work, probably" goes off again. I'm either brushing my teeth or scrolling through Twitter. Either way I'm still not dressed. Better do that now. (I only actually do that now about 40% of the time.)
9:34 AM: If I'm still not dressed, I get pissy at myself for poor time management.
9:38 AM: "Go to work, probably" goes off a third time. I'm probably still not dressed. Get dressed and be annoyed at my poor time management skills.
and the rest is the same


... I like setting my alarms to uneven numbers.
