Forbes magazine recently highlighted the morning routines of 12 women leaders. These routines include:

4:45 Wake up and have a bowl of quinoa cereal. I do an hour or so of 3rd or 4th series ashtanga yoga.”

6:43 Alarm goes off. No snooze. Pull on John Eshaya sweatpants and clogs.”

6:50 Make coffee (fair trade); microwave Zen Bakery muffin (vegan) First breakfast.”

6:45 Head down to the home gym for a workout.”

I mean come on.  Can you be any more pretentious??

The article is meant to show how people thrive from the consistency of routines, but for most moms, the reality of the morning routine is, well, a little bit different.
These people have a lot of needs in the morning.  I can't be doing yoga and eating Zen muffins, even though that sounds pretty freaking great.

These people have a lot of needs in the morning. I can’t be doing AN HOUR of yoga and eating Zen muffins, even though that sounds pretty freaking great.
