For the Record

For the record, for the past 8 weeks, my children have been waking up around 7 or 7:15. This is unheard of in our household and very much welcomed.

I get up at 6, shower, dress, make coffee and check email. Everyone else is sound asleep. It is so lovely.

This is a far cry from the nearly 3 years of my life that I woke up at 5 or 5:30. Which is just wrong. There is no reason to get up that early.

And Seren used to just SCREAM at 6. "It is 6! I'm awake! I'm awake!" Before she figured out WHICH 6 she needed to pay attention to, we often heard the "It is 6" cry at 5:36. Now, she wakes up, stretches and usually starts playing with her toys or dolls. It is lovely. We come in a few minutes later.

This late wake up sometimes is problematic. I need to leave for work at 7:30 so there have been a few mornings (but just a few) where I don't see my little wy guy. Those days stink! I feel completely incomplete all day.

But Saturdays rock; we can "sleep in" until 7!

I'm only noting this here because Day Lights Saving is about to kick me in the ass.

megan, you are awesome. just had to say that. may the force be with you on the daylight savings time. as a DST rookie, i can only guess that it's going to kill me too. c has only just started to "sleep in" to 6:30 or 6:45 on a regular basis. i can't really bear the idea of shifting that back an hour. but, as my grandma always says, "this too shall pass". good luck!

Oh, you are so right! I'm not looking forward to the time change at all!!! Glad you're milking it for all it's worth while you can!
