Waking with my alarm at 7.15am this morning and knowing that the kids weren't there to get ready was very strange. They've been on sleepovers before but never when I've had to get up and go to work before. Instead of the manic rushing about to get everyone ready and out of the house by 8am, I was able to take my shower in peace and enjoy my porridge without checking what the kids still needed for their breakfast or for their packed lunches.
It was very strange to not have to wake them up and see their still sleepy eyes, struggling to stay open. The way Zachary moans that he's too tired to get up and the way Charlotte pulls you in for a cuddle which is very dangerous because it makes you want to get back into bed yourself.
As peaceful as my morning was, it will be nice to get back to the routine of rushing about tomorrow morning.
