We all know "Me Time" is important for moms and dads to get a break from working hard as parents. Some moms I know wake up extra early just to have a little quiet time before their day starts and some moms get up when they are awoken by their kids. What is everyone's morning routine preference for "Me Time?"

    Now that the kids are older and more self sufficient, sleep trumps everything! I would rather stay up later the night before packing lunches, folding laundry, etc just for a few precious minutes of extra sleep.

    I always have this goal of working out before everyone gets up, but I just can’t seem to do it. I keep thinking in my mind I don’t really need to be up!

    On weekdays I get up before the kids so I can get myself showered, dressed and ready for the day. It's enough chaos trying to make sure everyone is ready to get out the door for school without trying to take care of myself too.

    I can never drag myself out of bed before the kids - granted, they wake at about 5:45am every day - but I would love to be able to shower or even check emails before the kids descend on us.

    It took some time to get in a routine, but I've gotten in the habit of getting up a couple of hours before the kids each morning. I love being able to have coffee and check a few things off my to-do list before the morning chaos starts. It puts me in a better frame of mind for the whole day.
