Things You Can Get Done When Your Kids Wake You at 5am

This list does not include the crying, yelling, threatening, and despaired moaning I did between 5-7am, trying to get my kids to go back to sleep.

-Watch Wallace & Gromit and the Curse of the WereRabbit in its entirety
-run a mile or two
-do 100 squats, 30 pushups, 50 situps and 40 lunges
-water all the plants
-clean the pool
-take out the trash
-have a squirt gun fight
-clean and sweep the back patio
-provide everyone a semi-nutritional breakfast (emphasis on the semi)
-plot ways to make them pay, like maybe when they are teenagers and want to sleep in and I wake them up at 5am for revenge a life lesson
-obstacle course-constructing

You'd think it was nap time, but it's only 10am.  Yawn.  Let's see how much more we can fit in before noon.  Oh!  A blog post!  And Lincoln is calling me to read the Bible to him, so add those two.  I would like to call myself a mostly success (if you don't include the crying, yelling, threatening, and despaired moaning I did between 5-7am).


  1. Even if there has been yelling and threatening (which are sometimes completely necessary) your days has been way more productive than mine.

  2. I have this really funny picture in my head of you sneaking stealth like into their rooms when they are teenagers with a water hose at 5AM, dousing them with water, and shouting "This is what happens when you wake mommy up at 5AM!" Or something like that...and then someone's arm falls off.

    I couldn't think of a better tie in. Color me impressed!
