finding a new morning routine

hello world,

school has started and my summer travels have ended for the most part. MHM is at the same school, V is at the same school and i still go to work at the same time, but our morning routine is nothing like our rhythm last year.

V is so much more independent now. last year, i could simply close the bathroom door and make sure she had books or puppy to play with while i got ready for work. this year, she’s climbing up on the step stool and pretending to brush her teeth while i put on make-up. or she’s hanging out in her room reading books in the rocking chair while i’m getting dressed.

it’s at once exciting that she’s capable and completely nerve wracking because she’s not quite 100% capable all the time. for example, she lost her balance on the step stool yesterday and could have come crashing to the floor via the edge of the sink if i hadn’t been standing right there. and i’m not always going to be standing right there, but i choose to believe that she wants to do it herself and let her have the opportunity to give it a go.

but i liked that morning time together. it was nice. now, it’s more like a race- still nice, but in a very different way.

trying to find my stride,

cm
