My first daycare child arrives bright and early at 5:25 in the morning. Wait, it's not bright at all. In fact, it's pitch dark. It feels like the middle of the night when the alarm goes off at 5:01 every morning.
I am not a morning person.
He is a good little boy and we get to sit and snuggle for almost 2 hours before the other kids come and my kids wake up. I always wake up cold, so we'll snuggle up with my electric blanket and of course, I need something warm to drink. Andy will drink his cup of milk while I drink my hot apple cider, tea or latte. This time of season, pumpkin lattes are my favorite!
Need to warm up it the mornings?? Here are some at-home latte recipe ideas and inspiration, check out these links:

So while we're snuggling under the warm blanket with our drinks, we listen to music and read blogs. I have a playlist of Andy's favorite songs and I have a list of my favorite blogs. The folks at TheBreakfastProject.com by @MilkMustache asked me to share who some of my favorite morning reads are.

I actually have a whole bunch of blogs that come through my email and I so try to read as many as possible but there just isn't enough time. These are the ones that I frequent the most and try to comment on. It's nice when you have reliable people who post regularly, as you read their blogs, you get to know them a bit and it's a little bit like waking up to friends.
