During pregnancy, I'd take my time waking up. Finding my spirit and aligning my thoughts through my hypnagogic state was effortless. I'd love waking up slowly. I had time to enjoy that peaceful feeling between sleep and wake. Amongst those moments, I was in tuned with a positive intuition in it's purest form. Remembering parts of my dreams before being swept away by wake, uncovered special answers that naturally I'd lose during consciousness.
Now that I'm a mom I've had to plan getting up at least a few minutes earlier to luxuriate under the covers. So I set my alarm at 6AM, so I can get everything down without censoring.
I try to set my intention to remember my dreams but as I compete with sleep and my hypnotic state, sleep often takes over, eliminating that part of my "feel good" essentials.
Now my husband complains that the alarm clock wakes him up and he can't fall back asleep. He banks on that extra 30 minutes.
Relationships are a compromise. But darn, this one feels nonnegotiable.
Sometimes we get so wrapped up in the daily grind and all our positive attention goes to ooing and awing over our little one. Mom's love to hear, "thank you, you are such a great mom". We all love to feel appreciated. When your hubby goes the extra mile, he deserves the recognition. He too needs love and props. Verbalizing your appreciation for all the times he is present can go a long way. I adore watching my hubby going goo-goo over our baby. It warms my heart. So as I smile watching my hubby get silly in love, that's the perfect time to say, "thank you, I really appreciate you and all you do."
Truth or dare time mommies and mommies to be. Are you ready?
How many outfits did you buy for the little one? How long did it take you to choose nursery colors? How much money have you spent on all the baby accessories?
Now, how many books have you purchased for your little one? How much time have you spent picking out just the right ones? How much have you invested into something that your children will not outgrow in the first six months - books!
Reading to your baby, even from the first day they are born, is one of the most important things you can do to help them grow, develop, and be the best they can be.
So, if the truth is that you don't have your library stocked just yet, I DARE you to browse some books and find some that you and your child will love! Happy reading.
