The Mum Uniform- In & Out of the Home

972b06fa4a8230389798aabe54152b40.jpgThere are days when sitting in my pajamas and drinking coffee is all I want to do, but at 6am my alarm goes off almost every morning and that is when my day starts. My alarm doesn’t have a snooze button, it doesn’t even have a specific ring tone, it doesn’t get
“switched off” or “snoozed” quite contrary actually- it demands immediate attention.

Before birthing an alarm clock I wasn’t much of a morning person. Getting ready for work could be accomplished in 20min or less and I was very rarely late. Since this alarm clock came into our lives we have literally added YEARS onto our lives! Not what you were expecting me to say right? I have a girlfriend that I meet up with quite regularly who generally sleeps in. If I was to txt her at 7am I would 99.9% of the time be waking her up, well considering we are up by 6am most mornings I literally have lived 2ish more hours a day than her (or my former self). It’s quite amazing when you think about it.

Do I love these early mornings? I have come to expect and cherish them- I can imagine that there will be a time when I am trying to haggle Ava out of bed rather than being woken up by her calls for me.

Once we are up and at it we have breakfast and then have fun at home (I very rarely take her out before her 10am nap as it’s only a few hours away). Our outdoor fun starts when she wakes around midday. This routine is normally followed on Mondays and Fridays when I watch her. I work outside the home Tuesday-Thursday and absolutely love it! I have been blessed with the opportunity to work part time at the moment and it has been amazing- amazing for me as a woman and a mother and amazing for Ava- being able to spend two extra days with her mum!

Most of my “play” weekend clothes don’t make it into my workplace but there are occasions where items crossover and when they do you can be guaranteed that they are going to be super super comfy! I have tagged some of my absolute favourite pieces at the moment- I would wear some of these grocery shopping and some to visit a customer for work. H&M are a huge favourite this time around as well as shoes from Wanted!
