MY MORNING AND NIGHT ROUTINE.... a true game changer

MY MORNING AND NIGHT ROUTINE.... a true game changer: 

I woke up one morning and everything was in its place. The kitchen was clean, the toys were put away and I already had my latte. I was ready to go and in a great mood! How did this happen?? Why didn’t I figure this out earlier??  

For several months, I would sit in frustration because the dishes in the sink were piling up, toys were everywhere, laundry was out of control and I couldn’t get my act together to even take care of myself. I wasn’t happy. I constantly felt disappointed or overwhelmed in my ability to create a great home.

 I needed a change. I needed a routine.

 A morning and night routine that would push me to spend 5-10 minutes on the things I do not enjoy doing. At least 5-10 on taking care of myself before diving into mommy-hood to take care of my little one. I didn’t want to make my routine too burdensome because then I knew it wouldn’t happen. So, I created a simple routine in my Mommy-do journal that changed everything for me.

 Here is my short and simple morning and night routine that I couldn’t wait to share with my fellow Mommy-Doer’s!


  • Put away dishes
  • Put away clothes
  • Make the bed
  • Take a shower
  • Drink coffee, relax


  • Put away any leftover toys/books from the day
  • Put dishes in washer
  • Ensure counters are clean
  • Wash my face, put on moisturizer
  • Write in my journal

This routine has been a true game changer. I wake up and the house is clean. I feel good because I am taking care of myself and making the time to relax before I take care of others. This routine gave me time back during the day so I could actually do FUN things with my little one and helped me stay organized.  It eliminated my frustrations of a chaotic home and made me and everyone else in this home….HAPPY!

Try it out for a few weeks and it will become a habit for you too!

“I am taking care of myself today!”

Do those words sound familiar? I was admittedly the first time mom who would tell myself this message repeatedly, yet I would never follow through. When it got to the point where I felt like I couldn’t recognize myself anymore both inside and out, I decided that I needed to be done with the excuses. I didn’t want to glance in the mirror and see a worn down, tired, and unhealthy version of myself.

Mommy and Baby Time

The feeling when your baby touches your chest for the first time and cuddles with you is indescribable. It’s the moment I immediately felt like a mama lion ready to protect, love and push to do my best for this sweet baby. The skin to skin on my chest continued for months at home. We had a no shirt type of thing going on for a while where we would trade off snuggling for hours at a time.  It was natural and I soon learned all the benefits of what we were doing through our pediatrician. She started to talk to my husband and I about things we never knew about… development milestones.
