Daylight Savings was 3 days ago, so my kids are all confused and have become bed time rebels!

Last night I had my glass of wine on chill and my night roster of prime time TV waiting for me. I never got to them.

It started with my daughter. She felt that since she had a nap earlier that day she didn’t need to go to bed while it was still light outside. Once my son got hip & saw she wasn’t in bed he was working overtime to keep his lil butt out of the bed too! The way he saw it, his infamous “I have to potty” in the middle of the night struck gold when he saw me & the baby sitting on the couch watching tv.

That night I heard it all!
“My feet hurt!”
“My knees hurt”
“My arm hurts”
*cough cough* “I’m sick! I’m coughing”
*sneeze* “Ma! Ma! I’m really sick! See?! I sneeze!”
“My tummy hurts ”
“My back hurts!!!”
My poor child!!
Then he gets this genius idea! My wonderful son says “I think if I sit on the couch with you I will feel all better!”
Funny how that works! In a few weeks time I pray I’ll get my “mommy wine time” back!


Mommy Moment: this week included a sick day (my daughter had a stomach virus) and a snow day (st. Louis was hit by a bad snow storm yesterday). Now everyone is gone. Husband and kids all in school. I work from home & don’t have to clock in until 11am. Sure I could clean my house. After the past few days I know it needs it. But no, I’ve decided to sit on the couch w/a cup of coffee, a cinnamon roll, and watch Batman Returns!!! T.G.I.F!!!
