Having a stay-at-home mom schedule to look forward to is amazing. When it comes to rising early I will admit it, I’m not a morning mom. I am more of a stay-up later in the evening for quiet time and snooze and relax in the mornings kind of mom. If we don’t have anywhere to go the next day, I don’t see the point of making everyone get up super early.
We can accomplish our daily tasks even if we sleep in. Bonus- we don’t have to worry about working around naps.
Rather than the typical mommy morning routine of getting up at the butt crack of dawn before the kids so you can have a minute to yourself, I have a different style of stay-at-home mom morning routine.
Now I will say that once school starts back, it will change a bit since my middle child will be attending public school this year while the other two homeschool. But when school is out, this is the morning mom routine that I prefer.
Daily Morning Routine for Mom
1. Be Thankful
If you wake up to another day, that is something to be thankful for. Take a couple of minutes to reflect on all the good things in your life and think about future goals and plans.
Before I get out of bed, I lounge for a few minutes and scroll through my phone. Checking emails, and mindless daily tasks. When my youngest kids wake up, they usually pile in the bed with me, and we all hang out a few minutes before we get up and start our day.
3. Coffee and Breakfast
Once we mosy out of bed, I like to get my favorite coffee brewing and make some breakfast for us.
4. Quiet Time
While the kids are eating and watching their shows, I take this time to sip my coffee and knock out a few important daily tasks. I find that the mornings are when my kids tend to be the quietest and easiest to keep occupied; therefore, I am able to get something done around the house. This is also when everyone can brush their teeth and get dressed for the day.
5. Fresh Air
After I knock out some chores and tasks, I take time to go outside and enjoy the sunshine. Take a walk with the kids or sit on the porch. A little fresh air is good for the body and the mind.
Stay at Home Mom Schedule
I have found that you don’t have to get up at the crack of dawn as a stay-at-home mom. You are allowed to set your own schedule and not feel guilty about it. If my kids and I sleep in a bit, we can still get everything done each day. Also, we don’t have to worry about naptime- we have already fully rested and are ready to take on the day.
The best morning routine for a stay-at-home mom is whatever works best for you and your family. What does your mom morning routine consist of?
