Early to Bed, Early to Rise. Crap.

A redundant and obvious statement. but staying up so late at night makes for one tired (and yes, occasionally cranky) Anti-Stepford. My circadian rhythms have always been a little froggy - more akin to club-goers and scene-sters than your run-of-the-mill housewife. What can I say? I like the moonlight. ::wicked grin::

Generally speaking, I hit the lottery with the youngling as far as sleep patterns go. He's always been a pretty good sleeper, and even when he was a mewling Kewpie Doll, he would still let me sleep until 8:30-9:00am. (keep your snide comments to yourselves, jealous parents! I've heard it all ;-p) But lately, in the past few weeks, we've developed a pattern of waking earlier and earlier. I can only attribute this to one of two things. Either the Alien Invasion has begun, and my son is a Visitor in disguise, or the burgeoning Spring and earlier sunrise are turning my adorable little vamp-son into (gasp! sob!) - a morning person.

No! It can't be! What is this world coming to? Next thing I know, he'll be demanding clothes from L.L. Bean, tending to his financial portfolio, and (I can hardly bear to think it) voting Republican.

No. Not me. NOT my child.

::sniffle... sniffle::

Perhaps I'm being a little melodramatic. I DO find that these earlier mornings, while hell on my brain function and major cutting into Mommy-Time (Falling asleep, first beer in hand, blows.) are pretty damned productive. I tend to have the house tidier, and have more time during the day to get shit done, and can catch up on my Glenn Beck...

Wait. Shit, I was having a nightmare. ::slaps herself::

there, that's better. *yawn*

  1. just wait until he starts school, and you have to wake up early every day and get your act together to get everyone out the door ad to schoo l in a timely fashion wearing clean clothes and having been fed, nevermind making his lunch (if you'll do that) and having clean teeth (which i don't enforce in the evening b/c of the battles that ensue every time i make him brush) be thankful that his school most likely won't start at 7:45 like Evan's does (he has extended day). Evan is hardly a morning person and on a good day i can scrape his tooshie out of bed 30 minutes before we need to be out the door.

    and let's just pray that he will will never ever vote republican..

  2. I know that I'll eventually have to give in to the early morning beast... A lifetime ago I had to get the youngling's sister to school every morning, and it was a struggle (for both of us). Ahh, the joys of parenthood!
    As for Republican. ::shudders::

    perish the thought!
