Re: Working Moms - what is your routine in the morning?

6am - I wake up, shower, get ready, etc.

DS wakes anytime b/w 6am and 7am but usually closer to 7am...if he wakes before I am ready then he typically occupies himself with either TV, toys or just plain old running around. DH is also home so I have his help as well.

7am - get him dressed

7:15am - downstairs, pack bags (food prepared night before), give DS milk and light breakfast that he eats while I get ready and get everything in the car

7:40 am - leave the house and head to daycare

8am - leave daycare

8:30am - start work (also on a good day....i've been getting there at 8:45am lately)

Re: Working Moms - what is your routine in the morning?

6:00 am -- DH & I both get up (sometimes a little earlier if we didn't get stuff ready the night before)
We both shower & get ready for work. DD wakes up somewhere around 6:15 or 6:30, so we switch off playing with her while the other gets ready.
DH & DD leave at 7am (he drops her off at MIL's, where she eats breakfast)
I leave by 7:20, at work by 8:00am

I keep saying I'll start getting up at 5:15 to go on the treadmill...hasn't happened yet Chat Icon

Re: Working Moms - what is your routine in the morning?

It varies because I can be in anytime between 7:30-9:30am.

Most days I aim to be at work around 8am. That means I wake up at 6am. Alex wakes up the SECOND I do - freaky weird, I tell ya. She hangs out in the bathroom while I shower and get ready, and we brush our teeth together, floss together, and put on makeup together Chat Icon

When I get dressed, she goes to her room and picks out her clothes for the day and gets dressed. Then we go to the kitchen, I make breakfast for us and we chill out for about 30 minutes eating and talking.

Then I run out the door at about 7:20am, to walk to the train. I usually catch the 7:40 and I'm in work by 8am.

Re: Working Moms - what is your routine in the morning?

my routine isn't too bad in the morning:

6AM-wake-up shower, change, get myself ready
620-630AM-DS wakes up-change him quickly and hand him over to DH so he can feed him
645AM-out the door to the LIRR

now my evening routines amaze me.
645PM-get home
7PM-feed DS cereal
730PM-bath
8-830PM-bottle/story/bed

somehow in less then 2 hours I get DS all taken care of, feed our dog and jam something to eat. If DH is home, he cooks dinner.

Re: Working Moms - what is your routine in the morning?

Ours isn't too bad b/c DH is home with DS in the daytime, but here goes:

7:30am-Get up (sometimes earlier if I need to do laundry) and hop in the shower
7:50-8:00am-I go get Christopher (he wakes up while I am in the shower) and dress him for the day
8:00-8:30am-Make DH and DS' food for the day and get myself ready and out the door.

It was pretty much the same when DS was in daycare, and will be the same when he starts school in the fall. I love Secret Agent Oso b/c he wants to be in the livingroom by 8 to watch itChat Icon

Re: Working Moms - what is your routine in the morning?

6:00 AM-DH and I get up. I take a shower, dry my hair and do makeup while DH goes downstairs to read paper, make his coffee and lunch and my tea and he reads the sports page.

6:30 AM-We switch. I go downstairs, have breakfast, drink my tea, catch the news and finish my hair (why I bother, I don't know).

6:30-7:00-DD wakes up sometime in there. I get her dressed, bring her downstairs, do her hair, make her 1st breakfast (she has another one at day care), clean up, etc. Finish my hair.

7:15-7:30 AM-we are all out the door.


I follow the same routine when DH is traveling.

Re: Working Moms - what is your routine in the morning?

Mine is really easy.

6:45 - I wake and shower, get ready. DS either chills in his crib, or is still sleeping.

7:40 - get DS out of the crib, into the car seat.

7:45 - leave for Grammy's

8:00 - arrive at Grammy's - she has everything she needs - formula, clothes, toys, bottles, diapers, wipes, etc. On Mondays I leave her clothes for the week, but I don't even need to pack a diaper bag since she is well stocked!

8:30 - start *work* - meaning my job! Chat Icon

8:30ish - leave to drop DS off at daycare and then head to work.
