So I always said that I like being the night owl that I am. However, I have also harboured a secret desire to be the up early and begin my day before everyone else types. Of course, it was too difficult to do this by myself. I took the opportunity of early-arriving maids to do this, even jet lags! But it never happened. Not for long anyway. Late nights always won.
Today I am back in my old (college) level sleep habits. Meaning, I sleep less. Now, I wake early and sleep late and get up in the middle of the night.
They say Motherhood changes you. For me, the discernible change in daily routine is my willingness to wake up early. Up by 6.30am to play with her before leaving for office and then put her to bed as soon as possible (9.30pm). The time after that is MINE.
