Do you ever wake up in the morning and feel the need to ease into the day slowly and quietly? But then you remember, oh yes, nevermind, I have children. Well, Laura from the blog Chicken Counting devised a new idea that stalls the morning chaos, even just for 1o minutes.

Set out butcher paper and markers the night before with a little note (hers read: Before you run off and start your busy day, sit down and do a doodle; let your mind play!). When the kids tumble downstairs, they can keep themselves busy while you awaken with your coffee. Maybe this won’t give you hours of morning peace, but just a few minutes is better than nothing!

Do you have any unique morning or evening rituals that help ease the kids in and out of the day?

    This is the best blog for anybody who needs to seek out out about this topic. You notice a lot its nearly onerous to argue with you (not that I actually would need…HaHa). You positively put a new spin on a subject thats been written about for years. Great stuff, simply great!
