Whew. Today was not easy breezy. Imagine that. We had friends over last night so I stayed up a little later than usual. Violet woke around 5 a.m. so I went ahead and fed her. (She's been doing that lately. I've decided to not be a sleep nazi about it.) She went right back to sleep. It was tempting to sleep in, but the power of what-you-would-think-of-me carried me to the shower.
There's a couple reasons this is easier than I thought it would be. I have always had a very bad association with getting up early as a self discipline. Mostly because in the past I've always failed. It has never worked for me. I always end up going back to sleep mid-morning or needing a nap later in the afternoon. Or snoozing until I give up and turn the alarm off. But this time around, I have little people to take care of. Once I'm showered and ready, the girls are getting up and the day truly begins. I have no go-back-t0-bed option. And they're cute little things so I'm not bitter. Also, Ryan goes to work at 7 a.m. every day. It helps that he is up and getting ready like I am. If he was still sleeping away, I would be more tempted to snuggle back in bed with him. Or throw a cup of cold water on his face in jealousy.
My eyes are very heavy this afternoon, and I will probably crash early tonight after the girls get tucked in. Tomorrow is the last day of my experiment. But I think I'll leave the programmed alarm on my phone going. We'll see...
Oh yeah, after I took the picture above I thought to myself, "So THAT'S where Violet gets her cheeks!"
