Lately, our morning routine has changed tremendously. We used to sleep in as much as possible because we would be up alf the night with one of our babies, but now that they are both sleeping through the night, we have started waking up earlier. I love waking up before the kids because it is so peaceful and I can get a lot done in a short amount of time. It is also the only time I really have to pamper myself and plan for a productive day.
My morning routine is simple, but so important for me as a mother. It has become the only “me time” I can get lately and that is vital to my sanity. I’ve been working during nap time and at night after the kids go to sleep. That is also the time I do laundry and clean the house up, so the early mornings are the perfect time for me to soak up the morning sun and breathe.
A Morning Routine for a Productive Day:
Wake up around 6 a.m.
Make the coffee
Brush my teeth
Wash my face
Get dressed and put on make-up
Enjoy my cup of coffee on the porch or on the couch
Make the day’s to-do list

The other day when I was shopping at Walmart for some cleaning products (hello, spring cleaning!), I stumbled on the new Bioré Baking Soda Cleanser and Bioré Baking Soda Pore Scrub! I have been trying to do a better job of cleaning my face every day (not just removing the make-up) since I had Sophie because my breakouts have been out of control again. I was intrigued by this product because it is specifically for combination skin! I tried it out and I am hooked! I blame the fizz! It makes washing my face less of a chore and something I actually look forward to in the mornings. I love the powder form – first to mass technology. I feel like I am not over-using it like I tend to do with other face cleansers.
How To Use It:
I simply wet my face with some good ole H2O and start scrubbing with a dab of powder and it immediately starts to exfoliate and foam up to a fresh feeling cleanser. It has worked great for my combination skin and makes my face feel so smooth. My skin feels clean and this scrub really helps to wake me up in the mornings.
Feeling clean and making a to-do list helps me to be really productive. I can tell a huge difference in the way I feel on days when I stay in my PJs and days that I get up, dressed and going. I get so much more accomplished and I feel so much better. Every mom needs to have a little “me time” and mornings have been working best for me and our schedule. So, for now, I will continue to pamper myself and enjoy all the coffee during my sacred early mornings.
