Isn't it funny how kids change you? My whole life I have been a NigHt oWL and now I am what I thought I would never be; a mORniNG bIRd! It wasn't by choice at first, but now I lOvE evERytHInG aBOut MoRniNg! Elmer leaves for work by 6:30 so Kai is still fast asleep when we get up, giving Elmer and I some very RARE us time. It might only be ten minutes that we get to spend together, but it is sooo worth it. I lOvE tHIs mAn MorE tHan SlEep, and I LOVE sleep! Sometimes after oUr KiSs gOOdbYe, I sneak back to bed for another hour of sleep; but most days my little stinker wakes just as dAddy's TrUCk leaves the drive way. He is up and REadY tO PlaY! Into my bed we go to sNuGgle wItH ThE pIlLoWs, BlAnkEts AnD eACh OthER! Sweet coos of I lOvE YoU mOMmy and gENtle KiSseS from Kai's slobbery mouth help to start the day off right. Of course the occasional slap in the face from Kai is quite invigorating also! What helps you start your day off right?

I love it when I go get Michael out of his crib and he's just sitting there waiting for me. He's usually just talking away. I sneak in on him and he just busts out a huge smile and it melts my heart. It makes me feel so good to be his mommy & that helps me start the day off right.

I'm still a night person!! Mornings are not my favorite, but just like you I love seeing my kids faces and loving and cuddling them, especially when they wake up in a good mood :)

Michael usually wakes before the alarm goes off. He quietly sneaks in and walks over to my side of the bed. I pick him up and we snuggle. He usually massages my arm while he falls back to sleep for another hour.

Jenny,
Mornings are definitely not my favorite time either!

How Cute! Sometimes I do mornings other times not so much. It depends on what I'm getting up for. MY kids wake up at about 8:30 every morning now matter what. Sometimes I'm in bed and Madilynn sneaks into my room other times I'm already up blogging with the washer going in the background.

I love this. and I too was not a morning person until Annabelle was part of my life. to get me energized for the morning I am at the gym on campas for 1.5 hours with friends before getting home and showered before Jas leaves for school at 8. If it's a good day I can usually get a shower in before he's gone. But a morning starting out with cuddling from babies sounds much more appealing.
