  1. I try to wake up before my kiddos, but they can sense when I’m up most days, it could be 4am and they know and get up. I love your idea of the daily 15min cleaning session!! I am totally going to do that!! We as moms are so hard on ourselves, so being kind to ourselves is important.

      I totally get that! I have to tip toe around and they still sense it! It is amazing what you can get done when you set a timer. Its seriously life changing. I hope it works out for you!!

      Seriously! We are fortunate enough to have someone come every 3 weeks for a deeper clean, but I still find I am cleaning all the time!

  2. Such great advice! I have heard so often to wake up before the kids. My little one is still little and her schedule is unpredictable. But as soon as she has a consistent wake up time that will be one of the first things I do.

  3. I always attempt to wake up before my kiddo but I just can never get out of bed ! Lol. The few times I actually got up early I felt so calm and peaceful as the house was completely silent and I was able to enjoy a HOT cup of coffee ! ✔️

      It can be so hard!! Sometimes my alarm will wake them if it keeps going off so thats usually incentive to get up and turn it off instead of snooze haha.

  4. These are really great tips. I do some of them, but I can’t wake up before them. We go to bed way after them, so we try to get as much sleep as we can!

  5. I totally agree with you on the cleaning less. I have a hard time convincing myself that it is ok for things to be a little messy. Before my son came along I spent everyday since becoming a sahm cleaning and organizing the whole house while my daughter was at school.

  6. Thank you for sharing! Your blog will definitely help myself and others. I love the “more of and less of” advice!! Definitely going to do this. Thank you!
