Lately, mornings have been rougher than normal. I don’t know if it’s the whole darker outside thing or the sometimes cooler temps but my normally up-and-at-’em boys have been harder to get out of bed some days.
Insert Mirror Messages.
I will randomly write notes to them on their bathroom mirrors.
When I find Brooks has snuck into his brothers room, I’ll put a note to both of them in Landon’s bathroom. If they’re in separate rooms, then they each get a personalized one on their own mirror.
It’s nothing complicated – usually just a note like “you are my sunshine” or “good morning Bubba”. Sometimes I sketch faces for them to stand behind (i.e. I’ll add a mustache or beard that will show up when they stand behind it).
It’s the simplest thing – just a dry erase marker directly on their mirror. But they love waking up to find the messages and I love that they have an extra pep in their step those mornings.
What do you do to shake up the morning routine at your house?
