The Sweetest Time

I have to get up before The Kids do. I've realized that I simply function better in the morning if I have time to get my coffee, read by Bible, say my prayers, and just generally WAKE UP before I go into Mommy Mode. After I'm done with those things, I usually end up surfing on my laptop until The Kids are out of bed, which is usually no later than 7:00.
I make sure that I'm positioned in the bed with room enough for a child on each side because they always, always come in and get on the bed with me. One snuggles in on the left, one on the right, and we usually end up watching The Mean Kitty Video or some other video about Sparta. It's rare for us to spend less than 10 minutes on the bed together and I've really begun to cherish that sweet time together.
Even though it means that I make breakfast with "Kitty, little kit-kitty, little kit-kitty..." running through my head.

My kids LOVE Sparta. They've also fallen in love the Weird Al videos. Maybe your kiddos would like to watch the Blendtec videos! At (I think). Watching him blend Chuck Norris and bad guys action figures is THE BEST!!! Just something new for them ... I'm just sayin' ...

that's awesome...can't wait for us to have those times together with our little one coming soon :-) another reason that i can't wait for sakari to come home is that i can finally drink coffee again...fasting it until she comes, i miss my coffee with my Bible reading in the morning at the dining table - it's like coffee brings extra revelation and presence of the Lord - LOL
