Ugghhh! Mornings are rough around here. I am not a morning person at all, and I don't usually really get going until about 11:00 am. I am up much before that, but the fog is usually quite tangible until then. So explain then how I have a child that is an energetic morning person? He wakes between 6:30 and 7:00 and is soooo happy it's painful. I struggle to get his breakfast and feed him, and now with his crawling I need to be that much more awake - he's everywhere! Most days I find myself grabbing a nap when he goes down for his morning nap - this usually catapults me into my day and we do pretty well through the afternoon. This time of year is especially rough as I have seasonal allergies that can really flare up. My favorite remedy for this is a cup of nettle tea with honey, pictured above. It's amazing what it does for that itchy, scratchy feeling and heavy eyes. It can taste a little green by itself, but the honey makes it better, and local honey is purported to be good for the allergies too. Now if it would just help with the morning fog, and give me a kick start that would be good.
