The Early Bird

The early bird may get the worm, but he can have it if he just lets me sleep! Another restless night and early morning toddler alarm started the day for me today. Dania was in full-cute form, though, and was impossible to ignore!

As we tickled and snuggled our way to complete wakefulness, the sun (and older children) arose to greet us. So, naturally, I flung food into hungry mouths at the speed of light, tackled mountains of laundry, conquered the retail Superdome, shoveled some lunch, convinced the toddler to take a siesta, educated the second-grader, restocked hubby's favorite restaurant salsa, and narrowly escaped sunburn at the homeschool park day. All before dinner.

Now, the little ones are nestled all snug in their beds, and I am fading fast. Sunshine, fresh air, early start, busy day.... sure makes a sleepy mommy. My least favorite thing about bedtime? Once I fall asleep, my next conscious thought will be that it is time to do it all again.
See you tomorrow,
