Mommy Time...

When our alarm goes off at 4:45 AM every morning, I want to cry. There never seems to be enough hours in the night! Why is that? Why do Mom's (and Dad's in our case)never get enough rest??? Oh, the questions I will have for God (Like: Child birth? Never ending laundry? Migrains? Feeling rested? Calories? Germs?)
Anyway, I get up every morning knowing I will have a few hours of "Mommy Time" before the kids wake up around 7:00. Granted, I have to wake up early for it, but I love it. I love sitting with my bowl of cereal in my bathrobe checking the blogs for deals, craft projects & checking up on friends. More than anything- it's QUIET! All I hear are my super slow fingers hitting the key board and the hum of the strangly loud computer in front of me. It is Heaven! But... this morning at 5:00 AM, Willow made a little cry, and I mean little!... (she was probably dreaming) and the next thing I know, Trav is carrying her to me, while I'm still trying to wake up!!! Really Babe? I love you, but you could have let her sleep! It was a very nice 15 minutes of snuggling with my baby, and she did go back down with zero fussing, so it all worked out- but that could have interfered horribly with my "Mommy Time." Gotta love husbands!

i used to wake up before my kids. it was awesome. maybe i'll have to go back to that when i have three kids. there is nothing like taking a shower without kids around. :)
