'Be the kind of woman that when your feet hit the floor each morning, the devil says, "Oh crap, she's up."' (stolen from another blog)
I read this quote and thought, "Wow, do I fail miserably at that! The devil probably delights when I wake up in the morning."
I really do need to make a conscious effort to go to bed earlier and wake up more rested in the morning so I'm not such a grouch.
Part of the problem is that we (hubby and I) got spoiled with the Wide-Eyed Mischief Maker (WEMM). She slept through the night at 3 weeks old, and been a sound sleeper ever since. Drunk Monkey, on the other hand, was weaned from night nursing this summer and has never slept through the night. He wakes up at least once. And it seems like every time I lay down to sleep, DM wakes up and cries. No, seriously. I used to get annoyed, but now I just have to laugh, because it's comical.
Anyway, I'm a night owl at heart, and not a morning person, and I think that's been the hardest transition for me to make, from single to married to children. They get up whenever (summers are the worst) and crawl into your bed and basically just disrupt your sleep.
Sigh. It's hard to change a life-long habit. I'm gonna need a lot of heavenly help to change. Thankfully, hopefully, there is always another morning waiting for me to try.
