oh, monday morning

oh monday morning...

My children will tell you, I love Monday mornings. The promise of a new week laid out before me, sinking back into our weekly routine, the pleasure of being able to ease back into it all with a slow start to our morning. 

But alas, this morning could use a do over. A rewind. And that's okay. A breath. A little space. A little quiet. A little room to get that breath, and I think we'll all be just fine. I hear laughter in the other room.

Meanwhile, as we all start fresh, here are a few links I've been stashing away that never made it "to print" last week. 

Enjoy. 

And happy Monday morning.

If you read nothing else this morning, take a few moments to read this: Simple Mom:  Fighting The Tyranny of the Urgent at Home

New Orla Kiely bags. A girl needs a new diaper bag with each baby, no?

  1. I love monday mornings too! I love to have the week stretched out in front of me, and as you said, getting back to our routine. Hope the rest of your monday is wonderful.

  2. Two little people one all sunshine and roses. And one grumpy to be waking at the normal 6:30 with a migraine. We were just extra gentle, extra space.

    I should take on your view of Mondays! It is hard to pull myself out of bed for the florescent lights of the office!

  3. I’m with you on the Monday thing. Friday’s are good, but I have energy on Mondays. We go out to eat on Thursdays because there’s not much good about Thursday.

  4. some days an entire do-over is in order. alas.

    i have rather a love-hate relationship with martha stewart but i turn to everyday food often and just bought that app (thanks for the heads up). i’m really hoping it’ll help with my inability to plan my meals in advance. i love that you can add items to your shopping list directly from the app.

    hope everyone is feeling well.

  5. Can’t thank you enough for linking the article on the urgent vs/ the important. I needed to read that and so does my husband. I think that maybe that was meant for me to read this morning…thank you Molly!

  6. Molly thanks for the links. The urgent one hit home. While I really didn’t know exactly how to say it or think it or even put a name to it…you know it just felt like here lately random different things were getting pushed to the side, until they become so urgent that it was crazy rush to get it done, leaving valued things sitting on the sidelines.Ok, I need to go dry my eyes. Girls have some friends over and well, a broken down mom will cause raised eye brows.
