Rise And Shine (like it or not)

You know it's going to be a long day when:

  1. ... you're awoken from bed to change a stinky/poopy kid at 2:45 AM and hubby assists.
  2. ... it's 4:00 AM and you are starting a second load of stinky/poopy kid laundry!
  3. ... it's 4:15 AM and you decide to make a pot of coffee and enjoy the 'aloneness' one has in the house at that time of day.
  4. ... just thinking about being up half the night knowing that you will be providing 'granny day care' services about noon time.
  5. ... you get up before the birds.
  6. ... you eat breakfast twice.
  7. ... you're finished blog lurking and decide whether or not you should make a stupid post before 5:00 AM.
I'm in for a very long day!

Ummm....Is the above commenter one of your "new" blogger friends you mentioned in the previous post?

I have known the silence and solitude you write of. By noon it feels like it should be dinner time and bedtime not long after!

Awwww... I hope you have the energy to get thru the day? Is your boy sick or is this just par for the course?

Stay well...

... I may have to resort to comment moderation Connie. My blog barely gets 20 views per day and half of those are probably from me ;) ... so I was shocked to see I had 19 hits already this morning.

... Iowa Mom ... just par for the course lately (sad)!
