I have a very active little toddler who hrdly ever just sits still and plays for long so we're always out and about, especially in the mornings, either at the park, at a play centre, going for walks around the hills of our suburb.
But, by 10-11am I am soooo tired, my eyes are literally so sore. He goes for his nap and I just plonk down (I can't sleep during the day for the life of me!) with a cuppa.
I do start the day with a coffee but we always eat a good breakfast at around 7am - wheat bix or toast/eggs - so why do I get this sudden tiredness mid-morning? Is it normal? I am only pretty small (55kg) so it's physically very demanding with DS, and I am an older Mum (36) and I used to have so much energy in my 20's!
Can anyone suggest some energy-rich foods I should have in the mornings so this doesn't happen? I just feel exhausted even though we're an active little family. I'm due to go back to work in May 4 days a week so I don't want to be yawning at my desk.
