This is my B-Man. Five years of energy like a pinball. Bouncing off the wall and clinging to the ceiling. I'm not kidding. He starts when he gets up and he finishes sometime after he goes to sleep. He loves Star Wars and cars. Which is great because Hot Wheels came out with a line of Star Wars cars. This little nugget of cuteness is, dare I admit it... a morning person. UUUUUUGGGGGGHHHHHHHHHH!! We all know how I feel about mornings. Look at that face though, how can you say no? I'll tell you how.
Picture this: It's before daylight. The birds have just started to make noise (stupid birds). I can hear the lambs down the road (grrr). I roll over and fall back to sleep. WHAM!!!!!!!! My door flies open. What the!?!?! I was in REM sleep, I wasn't prepared for this. I bolt upright in bed and flip around. Aaron makes a snort-y sound in his CPAP mask.
"Mommy!!" my enthusiastic son yells, "The sun is coming up! Do you want to watch the sun rise?!"
This is the part in the story where people usually says "awwww, isn't that cute?" No. No it's not. Okay maybe a little, but like I said before... any time before 11 am... Nuh-uh, not here sister. I like my sleep.
I call it is "Anna" moment, you know, "the sky's awake, so I'm awake"? Okay maybe if you're not a parent you don't know, but it happens in the Frozen movie, I promise.
Oh what can I say? I just love him to pieces, even if it means early morning wake up calls. He's a good kid, when he's at other peoples houses. I guess that means we're doing something right. What can I say? He's a chip off the old block, which means by the time he's 13 he'll be sleeping til noon.... sweeeeet.
You know the saying, the grass is always greener on the other side? This is my attempt to find greener grass right where I am in my life.
BTW - I'm the one on the right, just in case you didn't already know that.
