Good Morning...

Today is starting out as one of those long days, you know that kind that start at 4:30 and I can promise well have no end in sight until way after 10pm, I love those day! I used to try and catch up on my sleep while driving to work now that I have to drive someone I guess I'll have to try and stay awake!!! I am glad you all missed me sorry I took a week off, between drowning work stress and everyday routine I have not had a tone of time. It is very nice to be miss though :) You all know how to make someones morning, even if it is the crack ass of dawn.

Last week we started giving Tatum melatonin about 30 mins. before bed time, the stuff works great!!! Last night Chris put her to bed and forgot to give it to her so at 3am this morning I was up giving that girl a bottle. I tried to let her cry it out but sometimes it is just not worth it when I think that she is going to wake Emma up. Tatum feel right back to sleep in our bed anyway so it was really no big deal. Around 4 Emma cam and got in beds with Chris, Tatum and I ( mind you this is not a King bed) after about 15mins she decided there was not enough room so we went to her bed...We tossed and turned in her bed for a bit and just as I was about to fall asleep The alarm in my bedroom, where Tate was asleep, went off. Well by the time I got back upstairs to my room to turn off the alarm ( Chris was in the shower) Tatum was awake and Emma too making her way back to my room. So here I sit watching Charlie and Lola listening to a 4 yr old beg for waffles while Tatum cries over nothing. To think Pim isn't go to be here for another 2 hours. I am beginning to think sleep deprivation doesn't phase me anymore, although Saturday night I did sleep from 8:30 pm until 8:00 am when Tatum work up. I must have really needed that but I am sure Dana's "Mommy Juice" at the pool didn't help, lol.
Welp, I guess I am gonna try and get myself motivated I am sure a shower's gonna help big time...maybe I could just cancel today...



I was just checking my email and Ana, Brandon's Mom, just sent me the a very cute picture of the babies while in KY... Adorable eh :) Hope everyone has a great day...

Hey I was up at the same time this morning, only with a grumpy hubby and an onery puppy. I hate getting up with Chuck at 4:30. He is always grumpy before work. I am so glad to hear the melatonin is working. i wish i would have had that for Caleb back then. Didi you watch the reno movie? Garcia wakes up in the patrol car and says "I just had the strangest dream" and Dangle says "You do realize your driving right?" sounds like a good day to call in. ~ Heather

Aww that is super cute! And none of them are looking at the camera, lol. Well girls, I have to brag, my wee one goes down by 9 pm and up at 7:30 am. But damn it, I deserve it!

I enjoy the little sleep I get. Thankfully the older kids on the weekend take care of Abi if she wakes too early( before 6. They talk her into getting back into bed with one of them and let mom and dad sleep in.I guess I'm blessed to have such an age gap afterall!
Glad the melatonin works...maybe I should try it for me on those nights I toss and turn and can't sleep until it's time to wake up!

Driving and sleeping...too funny! The pic is very sweet.
