“Wah! Wah! Wah! Wah!”
What was that noise? It was in the distance, but seemed to be getting closer. It progressively got louder as I pulled myself out of my sleep coma. Ugh. It was Kate’s alarm and 6am. I laid there hoping she would shut it off. Finally after what seemed like a half an hour but probably was only 5 minutes, I got out of bed, stomped across the hall to her door and ever so sweetly, said, Kate dear, wake up sweetie pie and turn your alarm off. Ok, so I might not have been QUITE that sweet. I jumped back into bed hoping to sleep for another 45 minutes before my own alarm went off. But 10 minutes later…Wah! Wah! Wah! There was Kate’s alarm again and she wasn’t waking up…AGAIN!!!! So after a repeat of before, with an added…GET UP AND DON’T LET IT GO OFF AGAIN. I ran back to my warm covers. And yet a 3rd time 10 min. later I went back to Kate’s room, and ever so calmly suggested she get out of bed or her life just might be over. Lol After kinda sleeping for 20 more minutes, it was my alarm clocks turn to disturb my slumber. I drug myself out of bed and woke up Bo, and made sure the other 2 boys were up as well. And about 5 minutes later, Kate came busting through the hall saying “It’s a snow day!” Ugh! If only I would have checked the news. I had become so reliant on the all call from school, that when I didn’t receive a call, I never gave it a second thought. I told Timmy and Bo to go back to bed and try to fall back to sleep hoping they could catch up on some much needed rest, knowing they probably weren’t going to fall back to sleep. I didn’t need to be up for work for another hour so I too jumped back into my comfy covers. Just as I began to drift off into the magical place of sleep, I felt a little munchkin climb into my bed. “I just want to snuggle with you mom.” Bo said as he pulled the covers up to his chin.
Now don’t get me wrong. I love snuggling with that squishy marshmallow kid, I really do. But for those of you who have been my readers since Bo was little, you know, lying still is NOT one of his strong suits. So with a wiggle here and a wiggle there, not much sleeping was had. About 20 minutes later he decided he was ready to begin the day. I glanced at my clock, ugh 15 more minutes and I would have to get up and get ready! Well, so much for sleeping in on the snow day! Better luck next time.
