Morning help

Thought I'd share in case anyone has similar struggles.

We figured out a new strategy for helping the boys get up and moving in the morning (especially Bearhug, and I feel his pain because I am not a morning person either). Mornings have been especially hard lately with it being dark outside and cold. After trying a few other things with little or no improvement, we asked Bearhug if it would help to have warm clothes to put on in the morning. He liked the idea, so we had him pick out his clothes the night before and the next morning we put them in the dryer for a few minutes. Sure enough, he popped out of bed with no problem to put his warm clothes on and then he was good to go.

Cuddlebug wanted to try it too, and we figured Bitty might like it too, so now every morning we put three sets of clothes in the dryer in the morning and deliver warm clothes to three sleepy boys... and our morning routine goes much more smoothly now :).

That's interesting. Glad that this little trick helps to make the morning routine much more smoothly now.

=D I love that idea! Good for you! Sometimes I leave a sweatshirt or something on the cast iron radiator to warm up. It's so nice to have warm clothes to put on since the hardest part about getting up is leaving a warm bed!

I love this idea! You are so right that with is being cold and dark in the mornings it is rough.

Now if you can find a way to pop out of bed and have warm clothes for you! LOL

I can relate. My favorite thing in the morning is a very hot shower. That is the best medicine to waking up.
