I’m not sure about you, but I’m having a hard time getting my Monday in gear.
We had a wonderful but slightly hectic weekend, complete with a glam photoshoot, catching up with friends we haven’t seen in way too long, and a brunch with about a dozen babies and their families. (The cuteness quotient was out of control.)
But Daylight Savings is still kicking my rear and I’m feeling stretched very thin.
To help me buck up, I’m channeling Peeper as today’s motivational coach. In my head, I’m thinking of what Peeper might say. Here’s how that’s playing out so far this morning in my #MotivationMonday.
6:30 – Get up with Kiwi, feed her. Then go to the bathroom. “Yay!!! You went pee!” *clapping*
(Thank you positive reinforcement for potty training!)
6:50 – Spill water from the Brita all over the floor. My coordination isn’t awake yet. “That’s ok. When we make a mess we say, ‘Oops,’ then we clean it up.”
7:15 – Check work email. Despair over how I’m going to get anything/everything done this week. “You can do it!”
7:30 – Try for the fourth time to burn a CD for today’s homeschool preschool. “Keep trying.” Or call the Mac repair shop.
7:45 – Get Peeper out of bed. Think about how she no longer naps, so it’ll be go-go-go-go the rest of the day. “I love you, Mama.” *kiss*
And suddenly my case of the Mondays went poof!
Today’s #MotivationMonday lesson: When you need a pick-me-up, just ask yourself WWPS (What Would Peeper Say?). It’s guaranteed to lift you up.
And if for some reason even that doesn’t work, just watch this—three seconds of concise cuteness.
