Starting the day the tumbling wayAugust 24th, 2012 | Posted by in Laughter and Disaster | MaMa Moments | parenthood | triplets
What were you doing today at 7AM? I had just gotten home from a run. It was a hard run. I was tired. I thought that perhaps the kids would still be asleep and I could have a few quiet moments with my coffee on the porch to wake up — and armor up — for the day ahead. I was wrong. This is what was going on in our house at 7AM. And, if you’re wondering where our fifth kid is, he had an early departure for a special day out with Dad. Leaving me home alone with this:
I’m now on my third cup of coffee and I still don’t have the energy they have. Which, I suppose, may not be such a bad thing… after all, I wouldn’t look nearly as cute bouncing off the walls and, it might be kind of inappropriate once I get to the office. Wherever your day takes you, I hope it includes a bit of the energy and a lot of the joy that kids bring into our lives… even if they bring it a little earlier and a lot louder than we might hope for!
