This weekend was the dreaded Daylight savings time. Better known as Fall back. Better known as : Little children everywhere will wake up at the crack of dawn.
Moms of little children everywhere hate Daylight Savings Time.
Because no matter how late you let them stay up or how many activities you plan so they will be exhausted or even if you just go through your regular routine….these kids don’t care. Their little internal alarm clocks don’t care nothing about your desire to sleep in.
Let’s take my household for example….
4:52 AM: MOMMY
4:53 AM: CDub: Pookah called you. Me: *whining* why can’t I ever sleep in ?*
4:54 AM: *CDub goes into Pookah’s room….*
4:55 AM: CDub: He had a bad dream. I told him he could get in our bed after he went to the bathroom
Me: * giving side eyes in the dark* it’s 4:55 am
4:56 AM: Hey Mama * gets in bed, throws leg and arm over me and breathes heavily in my face*
5:02 AM: Pookah: So Mama, last night, Harry saw the Grimm again ( context, he is reading Harry Potter Prisoner of Azkaban)
Me: baby it’s 5 am
5:05-5:15 AM: LOTS of tossing and turning by small child. On his mother’s side of the bed.
5:16 AM: Pookah: Mama…I’m hungry
Me :It’s FIVE in the morning!!!
5:20 AM : I feel eyes on me and open my eyes. Pookah is THIS CLOSE in my face and waving his hand in front of my face. Mama, you awake???
5:21 AM: Thinking “&%#$%*@#$%”
5:25 AM: Pookah: Mama..Daddy snores…..
Me: *weeps silently inside*
Me: You may go downstairs and watch TV.
Pookah: What time is breakfast?( because he has a one track mind)
5:35 AM: *goes to the bathroom because now my bladder is awake*
5:35-6:00 AM: *Scrolls Facebook confirming I’m not the only one with this issue, talks to MJ via text message also confirming I’m not the only one, scrolls Instagram unable to go back to sleep*
6:05 AM: Me: *leaves warm bed and sleeping husband and goes downstairs*
So what do you want for breakfast?
