Ok, so I am still at work and bored out of my mind! Only twenty more minutes to go! Since I have a few minutes, and after reading some of my blog comments, I feel the need to continue the discussion from this morning. I just want to clear up any misunderstandings about that sleepy headed punk daughter of mine! First off, she undoubtedly stayed up way too late (as she does most weekend nights) and secondly, it was HER idea to be more active in the first place which prompted ME to join a gym (not that I am complaining or anything! :)) She intends to try out for cheerleading in a couple months and felt she could use some toning!
::rolling the eyes::
I cannot really complain about her sleep habits though as she does get them honestly! EVERYONE who has ever lived in the same house with me knows that I am by no stretch of the imagination a morning person! An optimistic and generally happy person, yes! A forgiving and bright new day sort of person, yes! But a morning person, absolutely not!!
If spoken to (or God forbid touched!) during the first 1 – 9 minutes, you are taking your life into your own hands! After 10-15 minutes, my head has been known to spin and a low growling sounds can often be heard when approached! After about 16 minutes and at least one cup of coffee, I can begin to fully awaken to my surroundings. Even if left alone, it still takes me about an hour to come around to some resemblance of a happy person. I have always been this way (from birth, according to my mother) and so have two of my three girls.
I have noticed though that as I have gotten older (30’s ^ up) I automatically wake earlier in the mornings (not less grumpy, just earlier). Must be some kind of weird aging thing! My mom used to call it her automatic alarm clock (she was up every day at 5am – crack of dawn person her whole life I am sure!). If you want to hear something even stranger, as she entered her 50’s, she began sleeping in a little later (like 7 or 8am).
So, to wrap this up SEXBOBOMB I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but one out of three of my girls was born waking at the crack of dawn and she has never changed! And she is 20 years old now! I still tell people that God gave us DD #2 to make sure that we three grumpy late day sleepers did not sleep our lives away! :)
I hope ya’ll had an awesome day! :)
