That moment when you realize you didn’t submit your post from weeks ago 🤦🏻♀️!
I have always been one to wake up in the morning and want to get stuff done until recently. Well probably until I was pregnant at least. I enjoyed sleeping in the lazy Sundays rolling out of bed and grabbing brunch. Now with the baby I always hope he’s going to sleep in … because mama needs her rest, but it seems like he’s been waking up earlier and earlier.
Last Sunday he was up by about 8 o’clock and this Sunday he decided to wake up at 7:15am. This may not seem early for some but for us it’s a bit of a change from our normal routine. Some mornings I have to wake him up at 8:30am just to get him ready for daycare.
Well last Sunday Lincoln and I decided to get our morning started early and we went out for donuts and coffee and then we went grocery shopping. It was actually amazing!
Lincoln got to take a little nap, we got to enjoy the grocery store before the crowds and it just seems like a very good Sunday morning routine. Then I have the rest of my day to relax, meal prep, and just enjoy the day without having to run errands all day.
So today although I wanted Lincoln to sleep in a little more I was kind of excited. I knew once 8 AM hit I could get my workout in and then we can go about our Sunday morning routine.
This week was a little different because it was pouring rain but I got ready – threw on a sweatshirt post workout, got Lincoln ready and we headed to New Jersey to start the morning with errands.
Now I know I am lucky because sometimes planning to take a baby to run errands all morning can be difficult but the joy of breast-feeding is I can feed him whenever and wherever he’s hungry. I am the mom who fed my baby while walking around BuyBuyBaby, while walking down the street and even in the checkout line at the grocery store when the lines were so long and he couldn’t wait. 🤷🏻♀️ No shame in the public breastfeeding game here… although out of respect for others I usually wear a cover.
So here we are it’s about 10:30 AM and I am sitting in the café of Wegmans with Lincoln enjoying my coffee while he eats.
This routine may not be for everyone but I’m not in a hurry I don’t have any other plans and I don’t mind doing this. Surprisingly it is not stressful and makes for a good day and a good time of bonding with my son all getting errands done. And let’s be honest going grocery shopping at 10 o’clock is a lot better than going grocery shopping from 12 o’clock – 4 o’clock on a Sunday.
What are your weekend routines? Are you a morning person or would you rather sleep in?
