As a busy mom of two rambunctious boys, our mornings usually start out frantic and on-the-go from the moment we jump out of bed. Up on our agenda today
A creek walk with Charlie’s preschool, dropping Jack off at Mimi’s for a morning playdate, running to lunch with a friend, last day of regular teaching (for me!), Tae Kwon Do, our second baseball practice and painting with family – PHEW!
We have just a few hours to get ready. And GO!
A brief bout of insomnia means I’m up an hour before the boys. Check social media, write a post, and prep for the day.
Head to the kitchen to make my morning cup of coffee and spill the creamer all over the floor.
Clean up the sticky mess before daddy heads downstairs.
Pour the littlest mister some cereal.
Tackle the dishes so I can wash whatever we make for breakfast.
Good morning, big brother!
Finally get around to preparing that first cup of coffee.
Send daddy off with a few booty bumps and goodbyes.
Settle in at the kitchen table for a morning art session while mommy finishes getting things ready for the day!
I imagine this sounds a lot a like how your days go!
Ilana of Mommy Shorts started the series with lifestyle photographer Raquel Bianca to show moms that there is beauty in their mornings, even though they may need an outsider to see it. Last year they documented five mothers in the NYC area and now Allstate has agreed to sponsor the series so they can feature mothers across the country. Allstate is all about protecting what matters most to you and helping you live the good life, everyday.
The Mommy Shorts Monday Morning Series sponsored by Allstate is looking for 12 mothers in four different cities to photograph their morning routines. The first three mothers will be from Chicago since that is where Allstate calls home. Head over to her site for more information on how to be part of this amazing new photography series.
I received compensation in exchange for sharing our morning routine with you! Just like moms, Allstate is all about keeping you in good hands.
This post is part of the “Mommy Shorts Monday Mornings” series sponsored by Allstate. Every family has a special morning routine, and as we continue documenting different mothers across the country, it’s clear there is beauty in all of our mornings. As the nation’s largest publicly held insurance company, Allstate is dedicated not only to protecting what matters most – but to guiding families to live the Good Life, every day.
