the reason it's soo hard to get up in the morning


can you imagine trying to get out of bed when you have this soft, sweet face snuggled up to you... it's on the verge of impossible. the worst part is i finally get the will power to pull myself away from her and go take a shower (matt immediately takes my place and snuggles) i come back to her needing to nurse, so i crawl back in bed and nurse her and she falls asleep again.... THEN (the hardest part) i have to pull away and get out of bed all over again! i tell you... the trials... they never end! that's why i have to set my alarm for 5 am every morning because with all this struggling to get out of bed, showering, and in bed nursing again, not to mention getting the kids breakfast and all of us dressed and ready... it takes a long time. the part i find really discouraging is that i get up around 5 every morning and by 12 i have never accomplished much more than feeding my family, getting dressed, and running the kids to and from school... and by noon i'm usually pretty exhausted! i do love the morning snuggles though, the last few nights all three kids have ended up in bed with us (luckily matt upgraded us to a king size mattress last christmas) eislee snuggled up against me with my arm wrapped around her so no siblings accidentally squish her in the night... layla in the middle, usually sharing matt's pillow because i refuse to share (i'm a total pillow hog, plus if she's on matt's side she won't pull my hair)... then there's poor maiko who is usually the last to come crawl into bed when there is hardly any room left, he sleeps in the middle with his head at the foot of the bed... so yes i often wake up going "what's that? oh, it's maiko's foot".... gotta love it... and i do... i really, really do :)
