My Birthday Wish: Be Careful What You Wish For

I'm a really good mom when my kids are sleeping. Happy too. 
The night before my birthday I told my kids the best present they could give me was to get dressed on their own and not fight in the morning. If they felt themselves getting frustrated, I would help them. Just please please without whining. They totally did it.

Only problem? It was 5:20am when they got started. 30 minutes later, I heard 6 Hush Puppies clomping down the hallway.

"Take your shoes off guys. Now. It's not even 6am," I screamed from my bed.

By 6:30am, Ella was begging me to take them to school. Oh my gosh. Go away. I hadn't even showered yet. And beyond that, the school would still be closed.

So instead of being nice about all their efforts, I was annoyed and they knew it. Poor things. It was too early for me to be grateful. Morning birthday presents. Never again.

  7. work on teaching them time telling...or set an alarm and when it goes off is when they can visit you...but only with breakfast in hand.

  11. Love your blog & honest light hearted approach to parenting - I only have 1 and morning SUCK - all whining and scheming to stay home every day - this week has been rough, I needed this laugh - I feel so guilty when my child is sleeping b/c I love him more that way!
