How is YOUR Morning?

October 10, 2019

.

We start our mornings off pretty SLOW around our house. Mummy gathers us up and gets us snuggled in beside her on the sofa and fixes herself a cup of nice hot tea, checks her e-mail, plays a few WORD GAMES, turns on the TV and might watch an episode of CHOPPED or FIXER-UPPER… and THEN starts to get us all brushed out and dressed for the day. Sometimes it is NOON before she even gets HERSELF dressed, but she says she doesn’t care because she just loves cuddling with us in the mornings. ??❤️? What is YOUR morning routine?

Get up, feed doggies, fix a cup of coffee to drink while I read my Bible. Let dogs out for a bit, then get myself ready for the day.

My mummy gets up and fixes her coffee, while I stay in bed with the daddy! When she gets out her breakfast bar, I spring out to help taste it for quality! Not any chocolate tho… she’s on her own there! Then I go back to bed to guard daddy.. then get him up!

Our morning is spent enjoying breakfast and coffee prepared by my husband, Toby Gibb’s, Dad. Then there is the cuddle time with Toby drinking our coffee and reading messages. C

HI Millie: I like to get a cup of coffee cuddle with my dog, and cats in bed and read my daily devotional and scripture. Then I get ready for the day, unfortunately I have to begin working. I work from home so it’s not all that bad. Sounds like you have a beautiful morning routine! XOXO

Hi Millie,
My mornings are pretty slow since I retired. Now that my little Ollie is gone I don’t have a doggie to cuddle but I get a lot of joy reading about you and your sisters.

We enjoyed power on. It was off for almost 2 days. 34 Counties in California due to public safety as high winds can spark fires. I am enjoying my morning and a hot shower and snuggle with my pups

No routine whatsoever in this house! Every day has it’s own surprises lately and we just go with the flow. But the girls always come first! They get their breakfast before anything gets done. And while they go lazily back to thier little beds mommy does crazy trying to sort through the days events! Never a dull morning…

Hi Millie…I’m going to tell you about our weekend mornings (since Mommy still works Monday – Friday.) It all starts at 6:30 AM (!) when my bratty baby sister, Maggie, starts bouncing on Mommy’s head to wake her up. I keep trying to tell her to let Mommy sleep a little longer, but NOOOO…Maggie thinks it’s time to start barking at the outside world. Mommy gets up and follows us as we race downstairs to head to the sliding glass door to the backyard. Mommy gets her coffee while we “take care of business” and then we come indoors and… Read more »

On mornings I work it’s busy. Peyton gets sad when I pull out my scrubs. When I’m off we get lots of snuggles and walks! Unless we go to Grandpas. Then it’s to the car. Peyton loves that too.

It sounds like you have a nice routine down for each day and everyone adjusts! That is the best thing… that everyone can just settle-in to a routine. We were always sad when Mummy left for work, but we knew she would come back home soon. ??

You girls are SO lucky! Unfortunately, I have to get up at 5:00a.m. get my girls up. Let them out. Then get their fresh water and food ready. Then get the meds ready for Pebbles. Two pills. Two liquids and an eye drop solution. Then out the door by 7:00a.m. and off to work until 6pm. 🙁 But then I get the dinner ready and then snuggle with the girls before we fall asleep. Days off on Wednesday and Sunday we all get to sleep in a little longer and then have a lot more snuggles and fun.

Well since I’m retired thing are pretty relaxed around here. I like to stay up late and sleep in late LOL thankfully the kids are all on board with that plan. When I get up I get to potty first then they all get to potty. Then I fix my sweet ice tea to take my medicine for the day. The boys don’t like to eat right away so we wait a bit for them to eat their breakfast. Then they usually go in and out a couple hundred times during the day and take naps. LOL Today is Scruffy’s… Read more »

I get up when Lovey, Sissy, BooBoo, Pooh Bear and KiKi tells me to, then outside, breakfast for the babies, coffee for mom and outside again to sit on patio. Then time for BooBoo’s medicine as he has CT, then mom gets ready to go to work.

Hi Millie! Our mummy feeds us breakfast and she makes her coffee. After we eat we sit with her on the couch to cuddle a little bit before she gets ready for work. Our mummy put us on a diet and so she has to watch us eat because ? ? tries to take some of mine. She’s a fatty and a piglet. It’s her fault we’re on a diet!!??????

Lolololol Mummy has put Addie and Tulip on a little diet. All of us tend to gain weight on those long 2- month long AIRSTREAM trips because we are pushed around in the stroller and there isn’t much room to run around in the trailer. Mummy doesn’t really like the doggie runs at the campgrounds so we only get occasional walks… there are soooo many dogs that are running LOOSE in those parks that Mummy just gets too nervous!!! So when we get home… WOW, we have plumped up! After a few months of trotting around our house and having… Read more »

We usually sleep until 7:30 or 8. Then we do some subtle stretches and head turns to see if mommy and daddy are ready to get up. Mommy stretches and we both go in for a big kiss and back rubs . Then mommy gets up and starts rehydrating our food and makes coffee. While our food is hydrating daddy and mommy take us to a close by park and take a big walk and we do our business. We live in hot Florida so mommy likes to get us out before it heats up to much. When it cools… Read more »

Our Mommy and Daddy are retired so every day is pretty laid back (except Sunday). We usually start waking Mommy and Daddy about 5:30 cause we’re “tinies” and our tummies get empty pretty early. We get and give lots of kisses and cuddles in bed for a while (also gives us time to use our tee-tee pad) then we’re off to the kitchen for a yummy breakfast. Mommy and Daddy then take their coffee to our screen room and we all lounge, kiss and cuddle till time to start “getting something done” as Mommy calls it. Licks and paws to… Read more »

Millie: We get up and have breakfast and then Lizzie takes her after breakfast nap while I drink my coffee and read my Bible. I then get ready for the day. Love that little face that snuggles right next to me early in the morning. Sometimes her little soft snoring wakes me up!!!!

I bet Mom enjoys snuggling with you and your sisters in the mornings!!!!

Mommy’s alarm clock goes off a little too early for me and sissy. We stay snuggied in the big bed while Mommy showers and gets ready for work. Then we are ready to get up. We yawn and stretch and then she takes us out to potty. We eat breakfast and go out one more time for potty. Mommy cleans up our wee wee pads from overnight and puts down fresh ones. We’re little and sometimes we just can’t hold it all night, but we are good girls and use our wee wee pads. Then Mommy gets us a treat… Read more »

Hi Millie! Moms alarm goes off at 4:30 and she watches the news and plays with us for 15 minutes. Then she gets ready for work. We all go downstairs for breakfast but she has to make her coffee first. Lulu and I eat breakfast and get carrots. Then mom drinks coffee and goes on Facebook for 10 minutes. Then she leaves for work and we take a nap. Love Olivia.

Before Mummy retired, she had to get up at 4am and we never wanted to get up with her!!! We would spend a few minutes with her, just like you, before she left… then wait until she got home for more cuddling. You are good pups to wait for your mama so patiently. ??

Monday through Friday our mom works and she feeds us 1 teaspoon of cottage cheese, and a squirt of pumpkin puree. We love it!!! Our dad changes our wee wee pads, then its faces washed, a fresh bowl of water and they head out the door. Weekends are late starts, cuddles, kisses and following mom around the house while she does chores. We get tired really fast and need a nap. We can’t wait until our parents retire.

My mom gets up around 9 in the morning unless that crazy black cat starts crying and wanting food and attention at 4 or 6 or whenever in the morning. My mom has to lock her bedroom door at night if the cat stays in or else it knows how to jump up to the doorknob and open the door. I don’t like her very much, but mom says she’s just a baby and needs loving too even if she is bigger than me. Mom takes me outside when we first get up, feeds me then I snuggle with her… Read more »

First I must let my Furbabies out so they can do their business while I make coffee. Then the Furbabies have to have a treat and clean water. Then it’s time to start my day. Taking care of 4 Furbabies is a lot.

Roxie could get up earlier than her Mommie but as long as I keep my eyes closed she just lets out a big sigh and lays back down but once she sees me open my eyes she’s on top of me ready to get off the bed (it’s high and she knows she has to wait for Mommie to let her down.) Once she gets down first stop is out the door then breakfast (she has a ravenous appetite) then we sit together on the couch while I drink my coffee and watch the news. We both have to ease… Read more »

HI Millie, Well Monday – Friday are the same…I get up at 6, put on the coffee , while the coffee is making I make the bed (by this time Trixie got up), by the time I get back into the kitchen (just a few steps away now, lol) coffee is done. I set in on the sofa with the reclyner out, Trixie comes and snuggles close to me. I have my coffee, read my Bible and devotions, then get ready for work.
