We're not really morning people around here. Well...Claude has to be a morning person (he gets up in time to leave for work between 6:00am and 6:30am). The rest of us have been sleeping in lately...a lot!
So, yesterday morning and this morning I woke up an hour or more earlier than usual and thought to myself, "Maybe I'll get up and get some things done while the house is nice and quiet."
Yesterday that ended in me falling back asleep and waking up at the normal time. But this morning I actually got out of bed, and what did the kids do? (All you parents out there can probably guess!) Yes, they woke up, too! :)
Okay...so maybe not all of them!
They haven't found me yet. I heard Abby say, "Where is she?" To which Hannah replied, "I don't know but she's not in there."
Even though I don't have the morning to get things done (like exercise or start another sewing project), I have the opportunity to listen to the kids wake up. So far I've heard the girls talk to each other in their groggy morning voices, sing "Amazing Grace", and discuss the best way to entertain Jeremiah when they can't take him out of his play yard.
So, the "productive" morning is just like any other morning, except that I'm the first one dressed. That's an improvement on our usual situation! :)
So, are you successful at waking up long before the kiddos?
