I look forward to Mondays?! Wait, what?
Yes. I admit. I do.
Go ahead, leave me the crazy comments! Hehe
Do not get me wrong, I do love the weekends. It’s family time, I get help with the littles from my wonderful hubby, we go to Church, and spend time just lounging around!
But. Yes there is a but….
Monday’s are wonderful because it’s back to the routine. Back to having the house back to myself where there is just me and my two year old. It may be chaotic but it’s not as crazy as the weekends! Monday almost feels as if it’s a start of a vacation. Us humans thrive on routine, just as toddlers do. My toddler does SO much better during the week with going down for naps, eating a big lunch and just being a lot more calm. It is a known fact that we all do better on a schedule! That’s why new parents are always told “now, you put that baby on a schedule, you hear me?” – I was told that SO much with my first! And I did the opposite. Now with my second, I did put him on a schedule and wow, how time went by much smoother. No more super meltdowns out in public because if it’s close to nap time then you know not to even go! Anyways, bottom line is, it works.
So now Monday is here, I’m couch chillen with my toddler, which he never does over the weekend when daddys home (weeeeee! Constant play time!) and I’m just soaking it away as if I’m on vacation. Lime Essential Oil mixed with Spearmint in the diffuser, no hustle and bustle & no ‘having’ to go somewhere. Ahhhhhh it is almost as if I’m at the Spa.
Think about it, you may actually look forward to Mondays as well and not even realize it 😉
Remain with a positive mindset and you too will have a wonderful day, every day.
