What Type of Parent Are You in the Morning? {giveaway from Seattle’s Best Coffee}

So my kids have gone back to school. I would love to share with you that I am absolutely on top of my game with breakfast and packed lunches and getting to the bus stop on time. In fact, I CAN share that with you. That IS what has happened so far this school year. But it’s only the third day and I happen to know that’s not really the type of parent I am in the morning — as much as I wish I was.

Ideally I would start my day with a smooth cup of coffee before my sweet children awake. I would use my quiet time to plan lunches and dinners and errands for the week.


Ideally my organizational skills would be so on point that I would post them to Pinterest and then break Pinterest because my tips are so amazing. But that’s not me.

I am not a morning person. I am more likely to grab my to-go cup of coffee as I’m dragging my kids out the door so we can walk to the bus stop to catch the ⋅bus. And once they are on their way and I’m back home, I’ll be refilling my to-go cup and grabbing a to-go bag shoved with snacks and bits of lists to get me through my next four hours of errands and appointments. That is, if I could find my keys…


So what type of parent are you in the mornings? Seattle’s Best and BuzzFeed have put together a quiz for you to find out. (No surprise — I’m a Snoozer.)
