When they wake you up…again
I get woken up every single morning. I can’t remember the last time I woke up naturally, and I’m sure you’re 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.
It hasn’t stopped in the last ten months, in fact, as the boys have got louder, so have my wake ups.
HOW I’VE BEEN WOKEN UP FOR THE LAST 7 DAYS.
“OOO….OOO…I NEED A POO”
“MUMMAY…can I eat this?” (It was a very dusty looking shreddie, I said yes)
“Will you join me on Minecraft please?”
“TURNAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES, TURNAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES – POW POW POW HOOWAHHHH, LOOK I’M THE GREEN TURTLE” *impressive battle between 3yo Green turtle and my converse trainer which is on the floor* “Can I have pizza for breakfast?”
*Cat jumps on legs, followed by toddler crawling over me and elbowing me in the face*
“That’s a big spot mummy, what’s that grey bit near your eye? What’s that red on your nose?”
Well actually, today was pretty nice…
(yes, this is a second take as I had my eyes closed the first time)
HOW DO YOU GET WOKEN UP?
