Yet another thing I love about home educating is that we no longer have that stressful rush in the mornings. There's no more tearing around trying to get a boy ready to go to school when he doesn't really want to be there. There's no more eating breakfast on the move because we're running late. (We always started out on time on a Monday, but by Friday we seemed to slip).
How I hated mornings.
But now I love them!
Our mornings are calm. Our mornings start with me getting up and doing some work and then with a sleepy Thomas waking up, coming downstairs and planting himself on my lap.
I am the luckiest mum in the world. I love the cuddles Thomas gives me when he's not fully awake. This morning, we cuddled like that for nearly half an hour. We chatted while we cuddled and thought about some of the things we might do today.
Now it's time for a leisurely breakfast together.
