I love coffee. It is often what convinces me that 4:30 am is not too early to get up and start my day. I know that if I get up, then I get to drink my cup of Cafe Du Monde Chicory, with a teaspoon of sugar and a splash of Oat Yeah Vanilla creamer, hot, and in total silence. That in itself brings me joy.
Don't get me wrong. I love my kids, and my husband, and my dogs, but does anyone else just feel like your house is following you everywhere you go? It's not like there is a living room or a playroom or heck, their own rooms, backyard, deck...nope, right under my feet is the best place in the house.
I'm not saying that I won't miss these days when my kids get older. I am sure that I will. But at this very moment, I will happily, willingly, even enthusiastically set my alarm for 4:30 am so that I can get up and have my 2 hours of coffee and quiet. Makes me a better mom. Even on days when it seems like everyone is under foot.
Where do you get your quiet in for the day?
