Mom of the Year

Every now and then, I do something so stupid that I feel like the worst mom ever.

This morning is an example.

I hear Bear up and playing around in the bathroom.

Look at the clock: 3am.

No freaking way, Bear, GO BACK TO BED.

Ever since he potty trained, he has been getting up about 5 or so to potty and then go back to bed.

But, 3am? No way.

About an hour later, I hear much giggling coming from the bathroom.

Bear and Monkey in the bathroom, both peeing in the potty at the same time and finding this hilarious.

Tell them both to go back to bed.

Hear much commotion from their room.

Tell Monkey to grab his stuff and come in Mommy's room so he and Bear(and Mommy) can get some more sleep.

Because no way am I getting up at 4 am.

Only when I hear Cub up and fussing in his crib, look at the clock which reads 6:30 am does it hit me.

Our power was out for a while yesterday afternoon while there was some construction going on.

It's actually 2 hours later than what my clock is telling me it is.

My boys were probably wondering what the heck was wrong with Mommy.

And had I not been so sleep deprived, I would have figured it out earlier.

I really suck sometimes.

Uh, that is not so bad. Ask me about MY morning. My daughter told me she "hates me" because I made her put on clothes she picked out but did not want to wear when we got them on....

I was really mean about them being awake, though.

Lisa, did you lock your baby in? That's always my fear.

Aww that is not bad at all! The fact that you are up at 6AM on a normal basis is way better than me! I roll out of bed at 7:30 get the kids through breakfast and then drive them to school half asleep in my jammies...hope that makes you feel better! =P
