How It Is

When you’re woken up.

10 Jul , 2013  

It seems that right now I’m woken up an awful lot.  Oh, and before you read on I must warn you, this isn’t a “finding myself” post, or very deep, it is literally about being woken up.

I don’t know about you, but when I built up my ideal of motherhood (or the vision as I called it), the being woken up was by a baby or young toddler crying.  However, this has not been the case.  I have been woken up in every other way imaginable, and here’s a list.

1. “MUMMAYYY I NEED A POOH!”

2. “AHH AHHH AHHHH HHHHHH MUMMMYYYYYYYY … HELLLPPPPPP … I can’t remember if there is a “r” in my name or not.”

3. Clamber, Climb Trump on my stomach.

4. A Hot Wheels car driving up my arm

5. Somebody twisting my nose

6. “MUMMAYYYYYYYYYYYY – how do moths fly?”

7. An alarm clock which has been farted around with going off.

8. “MUMMYY MUMMY QUICKK!!! … Trump! Warry Trumped!”

9. THUD…THUD…THUD…WEE NOISE…CLATTER….”uh oh”.

10. “STOPPP LOOOKING AT MEEEE….MUMMMYYYY HE’S LOOKINGGG ATTT MEEEE”

11. Thud….banging…”Thee wheeeeells on the buss go round and round, alllll dayyyy long….”

12. “AHHH MUMMY! HELP HELP HELP ME MUMMY MY ARM IS BROKEEENNNN”.  *Spider-Man action figure arm is twisted around*

13. BANG…BANG…BANG BANG BANG….(that’s a ball bouncing down the stairs)

14. “MUMMYYY WEE WEE” …. “do you want to go in the toilet?” …”NO NAPPY”.

15. *creepy voice* “MUMMYYYY I’VE COME TO SEE YOUUUUU”  *open eyes – Peter Pan is standing there*

16. “MUMMYY MUMMYYY THERE IS BLOODD!!!” *race up stairs* It’s a scab which has been there for a week

17. Hysterical sobbing interrupted by “I.JUST.NEED.TO.HAVE.A.HULK.SUIT”

18. “MUMMYYY AM I FIVE YET?!!!”

19. “HURRYYY UPPP SUNNN SHINNEEEEE”

20. “MUMMMAYYYYYYYYYY where areee youuu?!!! I CAN’T FIND DIDDY ANYWHEREEEE”

21. Thud. Clatter, the sound of spilling Lego.” OUCHHHH”.

22. “HELPP MUMMY I’m TRAPPED…” “haha. not really”

23. “MUMMY…MUMMY…MUMMY…” “yes?” “errm…..I’m Rarry”

24. Clamber, Climb, Elbow in the stomach

25. Pooh on my face.

The list goes on, however, I figure this is enough.  How about you, what are your memorable wake up calls?

  1. Yes to all of this.
    My 2 are especially loving the ‘Mummmmay! She’s looking at me!!’ thing at the mo.

    I found this really funny in a ‘yet to happen but can see it coming’ way. Gulp! Mine only sings at present.

    You missed *vomit* from your list.

  4. I thought the days of being woken up in the night were in the past…how wrong could I be. Our nearly 4 year old daughter has taken to waking up 3-4 times in the night. Usually it’s ‘mummy, I need a wee and a drink’…at first I didn’t want to leave her incase she wet the bed, now she’s shouting it out 2 or 3 times in the night. When you get her up, she does thimble-full of wee and has one mouthful of drink. If it’s not ‘wee & a drink’, it’s ‘mummy, I’ve got a bogey to show you’. I’m exhausted…..

  5. […] I get woken up every single morning. I can’t remember the last time I woke up naturally, and I’m sure your the same? It’s not the trilling of an alarm clock, or the buzzing of my phone. Nor is it the birds tweeting or heavy traffic going by. It’s not a peaceful beginning to the day. But you know that already,  I’ve talked about it before. […]
