Tame the Morning Madness with Laughter (Scrubbing Bubbles Giveaway)

Weekday mornings can be hectic.

To make our mornings go a wee bit more smoothly, we allow Grace to watch a tv show while we get ready. She doesn’t watch tv the rest of the day (except for one show at bedtime), and I don’t feel guilty about it.

This morning, Grace watched The Wonder Pets.

I was in the bathroom, putting mousse in my hair when I heard,

Mama! The Wonder Pets are going to save the elephant! He’s stuck in the mud!

Mama! You got stuck in the mud!

I laughed. “Yes, I did, honey. I got stuck in the mud.”

Days that start with laughter are always good days.

Scrubbing Bubbles Helps to Tame the Morning Madness

A few weeks ago, Scrubbing Bubbles and Janice from 5 Minutes for Mom invited me to the Ettore Spa in downtown Philadelphia to have some pampering and learn about the new Scrubbing Bubbles Extend-A-Clean Power Sprayer.

You can watch Janice using the sprayer in this video:

Was that cool or what?

Myself and the other bloggers who attended all came home with nifty gift baskets containing a Scrubbing Bubbles Extend-A-Clean Power Sprayer, a cool scrubbie, a waterproof notepad, and a few other things. (Janice is holding it in the photo, above.)

  1. OMG easy! Do as much as you can the night before! I make lunches and get snacks together, pick out clothes, and pack backpacks. Our mornings consist of breakfast, getting dressed and brushing teeth. Nothing to make me overly crazed!

  2. I'm a SAHM of a one year old. We rarely leave the house during the week, so there's not much rushing around for us. I do have a small morning routine that works for me: Once our daughter wakes up, I scoop her up and plop her in the pack and play with a bottle and one of her favorite TV shows. Either from NickJr. or the Disney Channel. This keeps her occupied enough for me to be able to use the bathroom, brush teeth, etc. If I'm fast enough and she still has some of her bottle left, she will sit still long enough for a diaper change. If not, then it's a wrestling match! She just doesn't want to sit still!

  3. To minimize the morning madness, get up a half hour earlier. Also prepare eveything you can the night before.


  4. We lay our clothes out the night before. I always shower at night to free up bathroom time in the morning. Lunches are also always planned the night before

  5. To minimize the morning madness, I do as much as I can the night before. I set up the coffee maker, set the breakfast table and pack lunches (except sandwiches, I like to make them in the morning). Thanks!

  6. My kids put their clothes out the night before and we keep the same exact routine every morning. They can do it in their sleep if needed!

  7. My best tip is to have them get their stuff out they'll need in the morning the night before. And I have to wake my daughter up 15 minutes BEFORE she SHOULD be up so she'll be up on time.

  8. To reduce my morning madness, I prepare my next day's menu the night before. From omelettes & apples to eat at work to marinading the chicken for dinner the next night, if I do it the night before, in the morning I can focus on making sure my socks match and both kids are in the car before I leave! 🙂

  9. I make my kids pack their lunches the night before and leave them in the fridge and lay their clothes out including socks and shoes so that everything is ready to go when they wake up.

  10. We save time in the a.m. by setting out the breakfast plates, spoons, cups in the evening before bed. I’d love to win this basket. With summer (and ants) coming soon, we could all use a little more cleaning help.

  11. There isn’t too much morning madness anymore now that my youngest is almost 5. We have a pretty decent routine in the mornings. The 2 older boys get their own breakfast, make their beds, get dressed and brush teeth –then they come down and start school. (Home schooled) If I want a shower, though, I do it at 5 am, before all the hustle and bustle!
