Rise and Shine

A number of people have commented this summer on how much I do, or get done in a day. I fear that some of these folks may have visions of me waking in the wee hours of the morning to the sound of Marv crowing. Jumping up and out of bed in the dark to begin my daily chores and projects.

That could not be farther from the truth. In this regard (among numerous others), I am lazy. I enjoy my sleep immensely.

So, this is how things go at our house in the morning. Jamey wakes up and heads off in the wee hours of the morning to the sound of Marv crowing. I'm still in bed, asleep. I don't even wake up when he leaves.

Then, my sweet Sadie girl (probably) wakes up next. But, you see, she's still in a crib and hasn't bothered trying to climb out yet. She wakes up happy and plays quietly in her crib until I come and get her. Yep. She's awesome. An exception to this is if poop or pee is leaking out of her diaper (she's potty trained now except for sleep time). If this occurs, she freezes and calls, crying for me. If she cries out, I wake up. If she plays nicely, I'm still asleep.

Then, there's my sweet Sam. There are two doors to his room. One opens into our bedroom. The other is locked. The doors in our house are very noisy and this works well because if he comes out of his room, I will hear him come into mine and I will wake up. Thing is, he usually just starts reading or playing with legos when he wakes up. So, I'm still asleep.

It is not uncommon for me to sleep until 8:00am...8:30am...even ...dare I tell you....9:00am? Do you understand why I have no need for coffee in the morning??

Now, just to make you feel a tad bit better, there are some mornings when we are all up by...brace yourself...7:00am. Those mornings are brutal. The next time you think me industrious, well...maybe you just won't think me industrious in the morning. Pin It

Just a friendly reminder, if you know me personally please try to refrain from using my name. There are those who may try to locate me, break into my pantry and steal my pickled beets. Thanks:-).
