The Best Time of Day…

The best part of the day is in the dark of the morning. My husband has already gone to work; my children are still sleeping (if I’m lucky). I pour hot, black coffee into my favorite mug and sit down on the living room couch to fully wake up.

No, wait, when my daughters come tip-toeing downstairs in their penguin nightgowns, their hair still rumpled from sleep and their movements slow and sleepy, that is the best part of the day. They sidle up next to me for their morning hug, and then run downstairs for a little morning TV.

But there’s nothing like dropping them off at school, either. Then I can breath a sigh of relief. Lunches have already been made for the day, homework and library books are safely in backpacks, and the morning rush is over. Then it’s off to teach all morning with my preschool class. I’m so grateful to have a job I love.

And isn’t it nice to be able to come home for lunch? I have the whole afternoon ahead of me to get some things done that need doing. Laundry, grocery shopping, etc. Tasks I don’t necessarily enjoy, but one of the benefits of having a part time job is having the time to get them done!

I love picking my girls up from school and talking to them about their day. I’ve missed them, you see.

There are some parts of my day that are not the best. Making dinner is one of them. It’s not that I don’t like to cook; I actually do. It just that making dinner every night gets a little…tedious. As does washing the dishes afterwards.

Yet there is nothing better after a long, hard day than stretching out under my warm, down comforter in my soft, cozy bed, and turning out the light.

I may have had a little difficulty choosing the best part of my day.

  1. It’s so hard to pick a favourite time of the day. Little moments stand out through out the day – the hugs and kisses from my daughter when I drop her off at school or say good night, how much she enjoys reading stories together, and when she wakes up in the morning – even if I’d really rather be sleeping in.

    Enjoyed your post. ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. I love that the best part of your day continued with you through it! What a wonderful thing to realize as you reflect on your day. Thanks for giving me a reason to pause and reflect. There are many good parts to my day, too!

  3. I love when my boys get home from school – I try to be here and drop everything and they sit and tell me all about their days. (amazing since they are 7th and 9th graders!!)
    And, there are many nights when I get into bed that I truly say, “Ah!!! Best feeling ever!

  4. I agree…there’s something really nice about enjoying that first cup of black coffee ALONE before the rest of the house wakes up! I enjoy the rest of the day, too, but isn’t it nice to start the day this way?

  5. I think it’s different on different days. Tomorrow, school drop off will be awesome because they have been home so many days this month. ๐Ÿ™‚ I always love looking in on them one last time before I go to bed. Theya re so peaceful, quiet, an still when they sleep.

  6. My favorite part of the day is coming home from a long day’s work. As soon as the kids hear me unlocking the front door, they run over to greet me with big bear hugs and lots of kisses! My second favorite part of the day is right after they have gone to bed. My mind races on what I could do with my time – oh the possibilities! Take a hot shower, write, watch TV, read a book…

  7. This is perfect because as I’ve been reading all these entries I found myself agreeing with ALL of them, “Oh I love early mornings” and then “evenings relaxing are the best”…”nothing beats those hugs when the kids come home from school!”

    Your post perfectly sums up my thoughts. I guess I love it all too as long as it’s running somewhat smoothly!
