I'm Running Behind...

6:34am - I hear Kinley and Raya talking in their room, and possibly even throwing the monitor over the gate in front of their door.

6:36am I turn our monitor off, and pray that they remember that I asked them to sleep till 7am this morning.

6:37am - they don't remember that conversation. I still make them stay in their room for 15 more minutes, they empty the wipes case to punish my punishment.

6:55am-7:25 - I get everyone up and dressed. Ella goes to school.

7:30am- breakfast for the younger girls. Kinley chews up her cereal and spits it back onto the table, then she leans on her bowl and tips it so the milk spills and runs off the table and onto the floor...and then down the floor vent.

7:45am - I open my computer for the 1st time in what feels like decades. I need to catch up on everything, even if it's 2 minutes at a time!!

7:47am - Kinley and Raya are already standing next time me saying, "mama...mom...mama...mommy...mama..."

Sigh...

I have all these great intentions of getting on my computer at night and catching up on things, but I end up sitting there staring at an old episode of Golden Girls with a blank look on my face - it's like I zone out completely when I finally get to sit down, and the house is finally quiet. Hubby always makes fun of me because my laptop will be open, but I am asleep!

Anyone else not function well after 8pm, or is it just me :)??

(MAJOR mistake on the name poll that was posted here this morning, my friends. Oh mercy, I'll be back to explain, excuse me while I go try to find my brain...)

Laughed a little when you said Kinley chewed up her food and then spit it out....Addison's favorite thing to do, except he likes to hand it to me or put it on my plate...nice! lol

8pm? Shoot...I'm lucky if I make it to 8pm! I start zoning out after 7pm. My FIL just visited us and as he said to my hubby, "uh-oh, it's 7:30, you're wife is turning into a pumpkin!"


(and by the way-I like the name Cohen!)

That's funny about the name poll. :)

I definitely don't function well before 8:00 AM...this I know. I just wish they could get everyone in America together to vote on the workday. I'd vote 10-2!! I don't think I'd be the only one. :)

I am useless after 8 :) (Pretty soon we'll be asleep on the couch with a baby on our lap rather than a laptop!)
