Mornin' Sunshine

If you know me, you know I am not a morning person. Unless you were a lady chieftain and I was busting in the door, hollering, "MORNIN'!" just to rile you up. I used pull the curtains tight and slumber until well past noon.

I love my sleep and I thought that the early mornings would be my least favorite part of mommyhood. I am learning that many of the things I thought I knew about being a parent are wrong.

I just adore waking up to that sleepy, smiley, cooing face. We co-sleep, and I can't get enough of being snuggled up to Dahlia. She is such a little morning person. She pops right up and goes flopping all over the bed. Rolling around and falling over in a sleepy silly bundle. Yaya and I have decided she got that from Daddy since Jeremiah and I are notorious for late nights and wasted weekend sunshine.

Did you have a similar perspective change after having kids?

  1. We miss you!!!! And yes, even when my oldest is 14, I still get thrown into perspective changes regularly. I thought I wouldn't be able to cope with teenage daughters, but I am really enjoying both of them, even on their bad days. I thought I wanted 5 boys, but I'm so glad that's not what I got! :)
