Waking Up

This is how I go to sleep…with one person.

This is how I wake up.


One by one, they come into my bedroom starting at 6am. By 7am, the whole gang is on the queen-size bed. This is the start of EVERYDAY for me. I will miss these mornings when one of them decides it’s better to stay in his/her own bedroom. I will even miss the kickings, cryings, hittings, whinings, yellings, all that good stuff. I will definitely miss the body slam hugs from my boys, along with the kisses afterward. Next month we will be celebrating my daughter’s 5th birthday. Time truly does fly by so quickly. I realize I’m counting weeks, not years anymore. Every week, I see Tiana maturing into a young girl. I see my boys growing taller. My baby is not a baby anymore. He’s so big. I’m not going to get into the cheesy stuff. I just wanted to share a moment in my typical day with you guys. Let’s just enjoy what we have now.
