I am a vampire. Okay, so I don't like suck blood or sparkle or anything, dude, please. I am one of those people who works best in the late evening and early morning. It's not unusual for me to still be sitting behind my computer "working" at one or on the rare occasion two in the morning. As a result I do not get up early. In fact, if I can stay in bed until noon I will. Morning people scare me. Seriously, anyone who wakes up before the sun if they do not have to go to work, you people just, just....oh hush and stop being perky. Perky people annoy the crap out of me, especially you morning loving perky people. Just hush, I'm sleeping.
But I have a four year old daughter, so guess how often I get to sleep late? If she sleeps until nine then I count myself lucky. She goes to school in August. That's my new mantra, August, August, August.
This morning not only was I up long before nine, I was out of the house, before nine. I drove a motor vehicle before nine. And nobody died. Praise be to... The kid had potato chips for breakfast. I let her pick what she wanted. I probably should go scramble some eggs or nuke some oatmeal or something else she won't eat. I'm a horrible mother. I planted her in front of Nick Jr. the minute we got home. I'm hiding from Bubble Guppies.
My oldest child is twenty. Yes Twenty and I have a four year old. I shouldn't have to watch baby shows this late in life. It could be worse, it could be Barney, or Blues Clues. Or Teletubbies. OMG did you ever see those Boo Bah things. Most of the time I'm wondering what the creators of these shows were smoking.
