There are those mornings when I wake up that the phrase 'Who peed in your Cheerios?" would be fitting. This morning was one of those mornings. Nathan and Adam both were screaming in the middle of the night. I ended up trying to sleep with Adam, who right when I was about to drift off punched me in the face. Needless to say that woke both of us up. When the boys were little I think that I did quite well functioning on little to no sleep. Now, as I am acustomed to a full nights rest, sleepless nights make for a baaaad morning.
As I was trying to check email while the boys were eating breakfast. Tucker was barking at the landscapers who had long since gone. Adam was filling a freshly changed daiper. Nathan was talking in a voice that was not at all his inside voice. I did feel like I was about on the verge of a mommy breakdown.
Right on cue, Adam threw a cherrio that landed just perfectly in my cup of coffee. I looked over at Adam and Nathan grinning their little 10 tooth grins. That cup of coffee with a cheerio was the sweetest cup of coffee this mom could have - no cream needed.
