With back to school in full swing, we are trying really hard to get our routine back into play.
A summer full of staying up late and sleeping in, is no longer our reality. This Mama is back to waking up at 6 am, and I have to say I am not a fan!
Although my dream of getting up at 6 to do some Yoga, shower and get ready before my little guy is up, is always in the back of my mind. It hasn't happened yet!
I usually sit here with my giant mug of coffee and yawn.....
I'll get there eventually!
We have also been potty training my 3 year old son. I really thought it was going to be a difficult task, but to my surprise he really caught on! He tells me when he has to go now and wears big boy undies all day long! We are still working on nap time and bedtime, so I am wondering if anyone out there has any suggestions for training him at night? He usually has a half a cup of milk before bed, and I am thinking I should probably try to eliminate liquids as much as possible after supper.
And last but not least, I have been starting to prep my Christmas lists! I know some of you will think I am crazy, but getting a head start is the best thing to do! I will be using the new e-book from www.listplanit.com, called 100 days to Christmas. It is a great book, with lots of tips and ideas for making your holidays organized and enjoyable! It is filled with lots of lists, in fact her site has more lists and planners then I can even tell you. It truly is a control freaks dream! The first 30 days are free to try and after that it costs only 5$ a month! I have a link to the Christmas e-book in the top right hand corner of this blog as well! Just click the picture of the book!
The first day of the 100 Days to Christmas e-book starts on September 16th, and I am ready! And the best news is that by commenting below and telling me what the most hectic part of the holidays are for you and your family, you can win your very own copy of 100 days of Christmas! I will draw a name at random on September 16th! Make sure you are a follower of my blog, have "liked" my Facebook page and bonus points if you follow me on Twitter!
