sleeeeeeppppp where arrrreeeeeee you????









I am having some UBER jealousy about this guys consistant ability to sleep past 7:00 in the morning (more like 7:30,8:00 and 8:30 isn't even noteworthy for him). I keep telling his mom, "I'm not mad, I'm bitter ... bitter". My kid gets an assortment of fancy gifts (ponies, gold, etc) if she happens to hit 7:00 a.m.. 6:30 a.m "isn't that bad really." COME ON LUCY. Now she's not even really taking naps, but that doesn't change her morning roosterishness. I hate that I'm not happy when I first see her in the morning ... I grunt and drag her to my room to see if I can catch another precious 10 minutes, and Lucy is the ever timely "snooze alarm". Every 30 seconds asking a question, poking at my eye, staring at me, kicking etc. My favorite is "momma look at that big spider" (there was no spider) but it sure the hell got me sitting up and wide awake. I tell you this honestly, she's really not that cute before 6:30...

Oh man, I sure love my kids 23.5 hours of the day, but I hate them that .5 hour when they wake up at freakin' 6:00 am. She's ALMOST to the point where you can get her a digital alarm clock and tell her she has to stay in bed until the first number says 7. We finally did that with Z. That kid is part rooster!

Haha..this is the truth. Charlie now tells me "mommy, my belly huuuuuurts." so of course I feel guilty and we finally come downstairs where he amazingly feels better! The little stinkers are smart.

if you're getting until 6:30 I'm really jealous! My folks are usually yakking in my ear starting at about 5:15-- in the winter that's really dark. I did get a kitchen timer & they were under strict instructions not to leave their rooms until it dinged--- great in theory but never really worked. At least she's real cute...
