Reader Question: On days you're sick, or just tired or whatever, how do you get yourself up and going? I realized I use being tired as a great excuse to not start the day on time, ya know?

This is a toughie!  BUT - good question. On days I just can't get out of bed or am not feeling it I give myself 20 minutes of pity time and then ask my kids what they would like to do.

If they say "watch a movie!" I can grant that wish. If they say "go outside" we decide together if its a good idea. Some days we have jammie days and eat cereal (dry) in bed and watch movies...other days I need them to inspire me to get up and go. :)

The schedule is important to me, so we stick to lunch and nap but if we need a lazy day ... we take it!

Hope that Helps! :)
