Good morning, Internet! Being the parent of a baby/almost toddler is full of fun realizations about how life will never be the same as it was pre-baby. And to be completely honest, I wouldn’t have it any other way! I had one such realization this morning for the 9 millionth time. I wonder when these things won’t feel “new” anymore.
Parent Realization # 334: No matter what time YOU get to bed, your baby will still wake up EARLY in the morning.
Ouch. Yeah, Stan and I got VERY little sleep last night (because of the AMAZING wedding we shot – YAY Sarah and Matt!), but we still had a little chirping bird waiting for us at 6:30 this morning. We decided to tag team the situation and get up together. We stumbled, bleary-eyed, into Quin’s bedroom and, as soon as we saw his beaming little face, we knew that our exhaustion was peanuts compared to getting to cuddle with the sweetest little red-headed munchkin in the world each and every morning.
Sunday mornings (or any other mornings, for that matter) may not be easy anymore, but boy are they great.
