I wrote this the other day. And now complaining about being awake at 6:15 am seems ridiculous seeing as I’ve been woken at 4am every morning since. But hey, the sentiment is still relevant.
You know, this kind of behavior is so uncalled for.
What did you think was going to happen? Did you think this would go unnoticed?
Did you think I’d just let this slide by without even mentioning it? You did?!?
I don’t even know what to say. I don’t know if I can even look at you right now.
I’d like to point out that right now it is 8am. I have been up since 6:15am.
I’d also like to point out that by the time I managed to crawl out of bed, get to the loo and find my phone and put it on the charger, all three children had fallen back to sleep.
And I would have crawled back into bed too, only Murphy’s Law dictates that as soon as I closed my eyes they all would have been yelling for me anyway.
And let’s face it, compared to this past few weeks, 6:30 is practically a sleep in.
So I really did think I’d get maybe 10-15 minutes of quiet and then the house would resound with cries for food and sesame street.
And yet, it’s 8am. And not one of them is awake. And I’ve been cheated out of 1.5 hours sleep. Which is actually all I used to get a night when the Two were small. And broken at that.
Which means I know how valuable 1.5 hours sleep really is.
And you took it away from me, Morning.
How can you make it up to me, you ask?
I’d like to make you feel bad and say you can’t. But that’s a lie.
You can get me a coffee, do a load of laundry and suggest to Afternoon that he go easy on me.
Also, you can ensure that this never happens again.
Or you’ll be spending some time in the corner. Do you hear me young lady?
Yes, I do realize that technically you are a vague reference to the hours between 12am and 12pm.
No, I don’t care that I’m addressing you like a person, let alone a child.
Yes, I am serious right now.
No, I don’t think I can maintain this for much longer.
Get lost, Morning. You hurt my feelings. I’m telling Day on you.
