Our mornings start depressingly early; usually around 6am. As a general rule, I am woken by a small foot poking at my face, wanting a kiss goodmorning… And then, of course, the other foot needs a kiss.

S is usually pretty fun in the mornings; she hides under the duvet, or just plays around. Her favourite thing at the moment is to “hide” under a pillow and wait for me to find her.
On more than one occasion I have come back from having a shower to find her laying like this, waiting to be discovered. 
She has also become wise to the camera flash now, and rather than shy away from it, she tries to play chicken with it!
Once we’re up and I’ve had a shower, we trundle off downstairs to get breakfast.  
We sit together at S’s red table to eat breakfast – meaning that she sits comfortably, and I’m a thigh’s length from the table at all times because my legs don’t fit under it!  We sit together and I chat to her about what lies ahead for the day: who she will see at nursery, what she will play with, whether we have any plans after nursery. She chips in when she has a relevant word – or if she sees a bird flying past the window!
We were sent some belVita breakfast biscuits to try as part of this post; I thought S probably wouldn’t like them though. So I made her some toast, and I had some yogurt crunch breakfast biscuits with a coffee.
How wrong was I!
Poor old Mummy was left with just one biscuit!
Once breakfast is over, it’s a mad rush to get as much food as possible cleared from around S’s face, get her dressed, and get us both out of the door for nursery!
