Day 2 as a Blogger

A full day of not too much. The kids were up way too early. God help me if I had kids like some people that rise before the sun. My kids sleep until 7:30am and I think that's rough. I am soooooo not a morning person. I would love nothing more than to cuddle up in bed with my 4 favourite guys (Jeffer and my 3 sons) and never leave but unfortunately my 6, 2.5, and 11 month old don't see things the same way.

The 6 year old is almost always the first one up and in and out of my room 110 times asking permission for everything. "Mom, can I watch a movie?", "Mom, can I play my DS?", "Mom, can I get a yogurt/granola bar/apple sauce/drink of milk/bowl of cereal?". Geez kid can't you see I'm sleeping here? The 2 year old wakes up with a diaper full of crap EVERY SINGLE MORNING. "Mommy, I tinky" and flashes his cute little smile. That of course is the first thing I want to see/smell/touch first thing in the morning. Finally the 11 month old is usually the last one up but only because he is spent from his night of systematically waking his mother up everytime she dozes into a decent sleep.

The morning is when they all act like they have been penned up for months and released into the freedom...of my kitchen. It is beyond me how kids can multitask so well so early in the morning. I know I don't have it in me to bark demands for what I want for breakfast, how I want it prepared, pour milk all over the table and floor and my baby brother while pulling my other brother's hair, tearing through the kitchen with a dump truck and the tractor that my brother is screaming for as it plows into the youngest one making him cry and singing on the top of my lungs the whole time. YIKES! Boy am I ever glad I didn't have to get up to go to work today...

Finally I have everyone fed and dressed and the kitchen mess shovelled out now what to do with the day? Phones ringing, babys crying, toddler is already working on poop #2, 6 year old is complaining. YIKES!

All in all we didn't accomplish a whole lot today. One load of laundry (4 need to be done), one letter delivered (after the nasty phone call asking for it yesterday), the kitchen cleaned - twice and...well thats about it.
