Our Morning Routine as a Family of Five
I always wonder how everyone else makes it through the morning scramble. So, here I am being vulnerable and sharing first how I make it through. If you’re new here, welcome! I am Jamie, and I’m the founder of Jam With Jamie – a children’s music entertainment & education company. Most of the time, you can find me and my team entertaining at kids birthday parties or hosting music classes at different venues across the country. I believe in being transparent and having fun with life, so on this blog you’ll find snippets of my life as a Mom, products I am loving, and a little humor to help you get through the day. I am a mom of three, and love to connect with other working Moms working on their own dream life. If you haven’t already, reach out on IG and say Hi! I always try to answer everyone in the DMs.
Okay, on to the reality show look into our morning routine:
6:45 – I hear Zoey yelling mama, she’s standing up in her crib and ready to GO.
7:00am – I peel Evan off of me and roll out of bed to get Zoey. I question how much I really slept, what’s sleep anymore?
7:10-7:30am – I make Zoey breakfast (strawberries and scrambled eggs) and try to do a little tidying before the boys get up. I have this problem where I start cleaning and organizing when I’m supposed to be doing anything else, then I do a quick scroll of Instagram which I’m definitely not supposed to be doing at this point but keeping it real.
7:30am – The boys eat frozen pancakes or waffles, sometimes homemade depends on the week, scrambled eggs and yogurt. Evan loves to help me crack the eggs, and I think this tower is one of my favorite investments because it makes the ‘helping cook’ so much safer and less stressful. Zach usually has homework (first grade, I know!) so we make sure it’s in his folder and ready to go.
Around 7:45am – Zach and Evan start having a Pokémon or Beyblade competition as I yell at them to finish their breakfast and brush their teeth and stop playing with toys I remind them of their morning routine chart which helps keep us all on track.
7:50am I quickly throw on my clothes and do a once over with my curling iron which I swear by!
8:05am – We are out the door to drop off at the boy’s school. On the way, I let them pick the music and their current pick is numberblocks (Evan) or Fight Song because they’re learning it with their choir at school
8:15am On the way home, I either hop on an early touch-base with Aliya, my partner-in-crime at Jam with Jamie, or I listen to music I actually like (check out my Spotify favorites playlist here…)
The day has finally begun after the morning madness and I can focus on work and all the other shenanigans!
