Mommy Blogger

Am I a mommy blogger? I feel like I blog about so many different things, but I'm sure my kids and husband are the stars of my blog more than I think.

Today I'm going to chat about the mornings with the kids. That's so a mommy blogger topic.

Ander never liked to sleep in. I really couldn't complain, since he takes a 2 - 4 hour nap everyday, but boy, I like sleeping past 5 a.m. Once I got pregnant, we had to do something. I was finally falling asleep around 4 a.m. and then up at 5 a.m. So we taught him to wake, drink his milk, and watch cartoons until mommy got up. I worried, a bit, that he might unlock the door and sneak outside, but checking on him always resulted in seeing him lying on his covers in the living room, watching cartoons or cuddling next to me in bed, watching cartoons. And either one was fine with me.

Lately, though, Ander is sleeping until 7 a.m. And then, he does the cuddle/cartoon thing for a while after that.

Loki, well, Loki is the baby made to be the perfect match for me. He likes to sleep, um, WHENEVER I SLEEP. And when he wakes, he just coos. He sometimes wants to nurse, quickly (as in 5 minutes or less while lying down) at 5 a.m., but otherwise sleeps until I wake him at 7 or 8 a.m.

The result? I can sleep until the alarm clock goes off.

I am MUCH easier to live with.

I would be much nicer if I could sleep late too!

Envy is oozing out of my veins. Not Ander waking so early...Cady sleeps until 8 and sometimes 9. But the baby that wakes and coos. Cady was NEVER that baby. Cady went from wake to WAHHHHHHHHHHH! immediately. Savor that!

That's great that Loki sleeps on your schedule. I am so sleep deprived I don't know what it feels like to feel refreshed! Enjoy it!
