What Happened To My Sleep-in Sundays?

My children hate me and refuse to sleep past 7:30am. On Weekends, their internal alarm clocks somehow get set for 7:15am. And they don't shut up when you wildly slap at them like the Seiko alarm clock next to the bed. That's a cryin' shame.

Sunday is my day to sleep in. I used to take full advantage, too. If my husband or God forbid, a child, dared try to wake me up before noon I would only growl, roll over, and telepathically send out the message get the fuck outta here and let me sleep!

And then we moved. I don't know what happened to our schedules but the kids rarely go to bed before 9pm and naptime is all over the place or not at all. I think I slept until 10:30am on Mother's Day but that's the extent of my "you-don't-exist-to-me-til-noon-at-minimum" Sundays.

Which brings me to right now. 9:02am on Sunday. The One Who Hates Sleep #2 woke up at an obscenely early hour and since I wielded my whip and made Mr work on the fence all. day. long. yesterday, I grabbed my laptop and possibly a chocolate bar and here I sit blogging instead of sleeping - like a damn idiot.

HA HA HA HA HA ... sounds so much like me!! Only Kaedyn and Nate usually get up between 6 and 6:30... and I have to drag the other kids out of bed by their feet while they wildly claw at anything they can to stop me... and even those days I'm *allowed* to sleep in... I don't, because I hear the kids, and my mind starts to turn and then - what is the point???

That sounds like Wednesdays in my house... Hub is off on Wednesdays so thats the only "I'm-not-a-mom-today" day that I get... of course as much as I attempt to sleep in, I get to listen to the 9 month old yelling for me "mmmmaaa, ma.... maaa!!" Or today when he thought that 5:45 was a wonderfully acceptable time to wake up. Yes. Much fun had here.

Oh and I'm loving that I made your comment whore list, because if there's any type of whore that I'd like to be, its that one. =)

And, thank goodness for that chocolate bar, right?

I'm dreaming of the day when sleeping in on a weekend might actually exist again...

Give it a couple years...threaten their lives if they dare attempt to come in your room until you come out. But make sure they are set up ya know, like have their own tv, can throw a pop tart in the toaster, make their own milk, have their own pc, so they never disturb you until you decide to poke your head out the door. Works for me anyways, but wait, you have boys...umm, good luck with that!! It's worth a try though, right!!

Chocolate and coffee go hand in hand on a lazy Sunday morning... One of the things I like BEST about the weekends when the girls are gone is that I can sleep in on Sunday...

You are way too kind to SB... hehe
