What's Bugging Me

For Sunday Scribblings #32:

Morning sure does come alot sooner now that the time has changed.

My 4 year-old is not yet adjusted back to the standard time. This morning, he started morning at 5 am. Have you ever heard a 4 year-old try to be quiet? It's pretty loud.

My 1 year-old usually makes it until almost 6am or so. Which is pretty okay most days. But, we recently took down her "baby jail" (it's a play yard we had located in the middle of our family room), so now she has free roam of the house. Which means, if she's up, I'm up. Bummer.

I used to love the morning. Now, not so much.

UPDATE (11/6/06):

I have thought more on this topic, and have decided that the most offensive time of the day is 4am. Throughout all my months of breastfeeding and having babies who woke in the night, 4am was the time I hated most. At 2am/3am, you can still get in a few/couple more hours of good sleep. At 5am, you can go on and stay up, because you were about to get up anyway. But 4am is obscene. Going back to sleep only makes you more tired. Staying awake only makes you more tired. Good lord, how I hate 4am.


  • Your mornings sound like a scramble. Love even the idea of a quiet 4 year old! Good post.

  • I can't imagine what it must be like to have the demands of two other people on your schedule - but hang in there! Eventually, they'll start sleeping later - or at least getting quieter!

  • Wow! Kids certainly change the perspective on morning, don't they.

    Nice post. Hope time turns mornings back into your time at some point.

  • Children certainly do have a big impact in the way one views starting each day.

  • Oh well, you'll have your mornings back again in 10/12 years... :)

  • Not being a morning person this is one consolation then for not having kids! Love the image of the quiet/loud 4-year old :)

  • Your post made me laugh! I also have a 4 year old and there is no such thing as quiet mornings anymore! hahh

    I come from a family that adores sleeping in! So when my family visits the joke around our house is, "When Lil' C is up, EVERYONE is up!" No one gets to sleep in anymore! :)

  • I can definitely see your point on 4 am! I guess I better sleep in now while I don't have kids...
