I don't so much make goals for the New Year.  Maybe because I know I am just doomed to fail. I love the way the New Year feels though, a new beginning with a clean slate.

I decided with Van going back to school yesterday I did want to make some changes with my schedule.  I usually would set my alarm for the same time as hers, wake up to check my email over breakfast, turn on the news while she got dressed, etc.  You see how our morning time was always over shadowed by something other than just each other.  So, now I set my alarm for an hour earlier than her.  I take a shower, blow my hair dry, check email, and then when she wakes up it is one on one time.

This sounded like the perfect plan except Devi is a light sleeper...both mornings he has woke up to the blow dryer, and I have woke up Paul for the day too.  Oopsy. So instead of alone time, it is family time. :)

I am hoping that eventually everyone will get use to the extra little noises, because honestly...I really love the way an uninterrupted shower feels in the morning!

I've always wanted to get up early before the kids and be ready for the day but it's never happened. I go to bed way too late!

I'm sure everyone will get used to the noises. I did in college when I had a roommate who got up at 4am every morning for work. After a couple weeks, I never heard her!

You're such a good mom. I have plans to wake up before my kids but I can't make myself do it. I just know I won't get a break again until bedtime so I soak up all the morning sleep I can get. Plus, I'm lazy.

Good for you! I can't do it. Love my sleep. Would be great to have the shower out of the way before it all begins though.

my kids are my alarm clock. not sure i could will myself to get up any earlier that 5:30/6am even if it was for something really great, like chocolate cake or a new car...

That is awesome! I need to be like you. Sadly, I am sure I will still be waking to the sound of Gage for years! Who needs a shower? ha ha. Dustyn wakes Gage in the morning when he showers. Gage is a light sleeper too.

This is a great goal! Fox is my 6am alarm clock so I'm not sure I can wake up any earlier... but hopefully in a few years I can and have everything ready for the day before everyone wakes up!
