The blessedness has come to an end

Much to my dismay, sadness, disappointment, etc. I believe I must, at last, admit defeat. I'm fairly certain that Cade's circadian rhythm has finally made the complete adjustment to Daylight Savings Time.

How do I know this, you might ask?

I heard his feet hit the floor at 6:28 Friday morning. On an old pier and beam foundation, you can pretty much hear a thud if someone drops a paper napkin on the floor.

I awoke 2 despised minutes prior to my alarm going off with Cade at the foot of my bed asking if he could get into bed with us. Sure. Because he always falls back to sleep immediately rather than making a million annoying noises with his mouth and attempting to use my semi-sleeping body as resistance to strengthen his legs and arms.

And it's not as if he's going to go back to sleep when I was getting out of bed and heading for the shower.

This morning? It was 7:11 when I heard the boys fighting. It's like waking up to a rooster crowing. You can pretty much count on it coming early. Only it's considerably less pleasant. And if you're thinking that waking up to a crowing rooster is NOT on your list of Pleasant Ways to be Awakened, then you know how much worse it is around our household.

Ah well, Sleeping In and I had a good run. It was glorious while it lasted. Maybe we'll see each other again someday. Until then, I'll be dreaming about it.

Exhausted Forever,

One Tired Mama


  1. i love to sleep in too, i am such a night owl! but lately i have been trying to reprogram my body + wake up earlier. it is really difficult...but i am doing it.

  2. Oh goodness I remember those days of having little ones "wake" me up! :) Kids are just the cutest.

    Thanks so much for your prayers. It seems as if the River has slowed down and may be receding!!! We continue to pray and be thankful.

  3. My kids are the earliest wakers when they don't need to be - and I am NOT a morning person!

    But on school days it's all I can do to get them out of bed, and they whine and complain the whole time!


  4. HAHA Just this early morning Evan used"my semi-sleeping body as resistance to strengthen his legs and arms".
    Little Bugger!!!!!! I'll get you back when I have to drag your cute litle butt out of bed for school tomorrow!!!

  5. I love that he's in such great shape! You must be so proud. I bet he'll be an olympic weight lifter as a result of all that resistance training ;)

  6. Thanks for the laugh! Don't worry as soon as he is a teenager you'll have to beg him to get out of the bed before lunchtime.

  7. sleeping - it's over rated - right?

    I just gave you an award



  8. I've never known the joys of a child that sleeps past 6:30 a.m. But then again I am super anal about this going to bed at 8:00 so I guess it's give and take...but honey, I SO know how you feel!

  9. Exhausted forever? Love that expression. I should use that one of these days.
