Getting Ready in The Morning With a Demanding Preschooler

Morning stinks. That may just be me, since I grew up hating mornings. I will say, they aren’t much better with (a) small child/ren climbing all over you, ready for the day at 6 in the morning. It’s not ideal, but honestly, I wouldn’t give it up for the world.


Now, how in the world does a mom get ready for the day with a curious four-year-old following her about? Well…it’s not easy.


First, I can wake up to one or two children. It really depends on if I am watching my niece or not. Then I am happily dragged out of bed between 7am and 9am. No coffee for me, since I rarely like it. No, instead I get some water and argue with 1 or 2 children about what’s for breakfast. Eggs? Cereal? Go-Gurt, because they seem to think this is a breakfast food, no matter how many times I say no.


While they eat, yay, I can finally get dressed. Usually I will throw on a dress or yoga pants and a simple shirt, something quick and easy. No makeup…lucky if I remember to brush my hair when I walk out.

The only time I’ll straighten my hair or do some makeup is if my husband is home and I am feeling the need to feel good. Everyone, even parents, should feel good here and there, now and again.

Parenting is hard, it’s a sacrifice, but it’s something I could never see it out of my life. I would rather go 100 days without makeup, sleep, and straight {nice} hair, than one day with looking and feeling good and no child.
