What a morning

Ugh, that time change didn't do us any favors here. Sunday wasn't bad but Monday morning was awful. I must have hit the snooze alarm half a dozen times. Of course it didn't help I was holding my alarm clock (read: cell phone) in my hand, no need to even reach to the table. Hubby finally called and woke me up, good thing too.

Oldest boy was in bed with me...seems to crawl in in the middle of the night with me none the wiser. It took four tries to wake him up, usaully he is up WAY before me. I got his clothes for him since we were running behind. I look over while he is getting dressed and he is so tired that he is putting on his underwear.... on top of his other underwear!

Then, in my most convincing voice I tell him the hot lunch choices at school: cheese pizza or mini corn dogs. I was sure he would go for this as I was so convincing, maybe even go for liver and onions, that's how convincing I was. But noooooo. He wants a cold lunch. Why does he want cold lunch? Because of the cute notes I put in there for him. Why oh why did I ever start that? Of all the mornings for me to make a cold lunch... I'm stumbling around, late on time, puffy eyes, lines on my face from the sheets... not a pretty picture. But sure, I'll make a cold lunch for you...

The kid and his faithful dog wait for the bus...... with plenty of time to spare.

Oh, and before there are any comments about me being such a sleepy head this morning.... how many times did you get up and feed a baby in the middle of the night?

Funny post Carin. I'm enjoying your blog even if I haven't commented in the past. I wish you were in town so I could help you out a little bit! It seems like you've had all kinds of troubles lately! I'd love to help with the boys but you're just too far out there. Let me know if you need it though, I would come out if you needed it! :)

I think everyone knows how you can handle about anything so they assume you are! Sometimes it can get to be too much though. Keep your good humor, it helps! Myrna

Ah....I'm in the "Oh, my gosh there was a time change" catagory. Must have been going to the FAA fundraiser the night before that through me off...or maybe it was just a "senior moment"! MarBear

I tell you girl I would have been tempted to prepare a BIG martini (dirty one for sure) and take to the closet for a mid morning break.
Perhaps this behavior would be in the class called "BAD PARENTING"
