Creature of Habit

Remember that on Monday The Spouse and Child had the day off. So things got "back to normal" yesterday. At 6:30 I went into The Child's room, turned on her light and gently said, as I always do, "Time to wake up, Sweetie". Then I walked away from her room to do a thing or two in the kitchen, at which point I realized something very important and hustled back to her room, turned off the light and said, "Oh man, I am so sorry...go back to sleep!" and closed the door.

Because, you know, she's on Easter break. All week.

Sometimes I really am the worst mother in the world.

There's ham sammies on the table. Help yourselves.

But would the world's worst mother leave ham sammies on the table? I think not!

Yeah, JP, that's it...

Sage, living with a 15 year old girl is all the payback I'll ever need.

True that, Wills, true that. You got a little something in the corner of your mouth...right there...(spits on napkin and cleans Wills' face)

Yeah! That's right! She used to wake me up all the time! Ha! Payback goes the other way!!!!

I never got to sleep in .....as in never....none, not. My mother said getting up early made sure I didn't waste my day.....so I could do stuff like watching my brother, doing dishes, blah, blah. Yup, you are the worst mother....after mine....

Don't you just love it that I would now eat, with gusto, one of those ham sammies? I'm so happy, every single day, to long longer be a vegetarian.

Coulda been worse.
She might have risen out of habit,and you might have dropped her off at school before the 'oops' factor set in.
