My Mascara Got Me Out Of Bed This Morning

Lucky you get a glimpse of the inside workings of my litte brain at 6:58 AM. In case it's not clear, this is a conversation I had...with myself.

C'mon! You gotta get up!

I'm sooo tiiired though!

Well, what's that saying? 'Put on your big girl panties and deal with it?' Yeah. That's it.

Oh shut up. Just five more minutes.

No! You have to get up or you'll run out of time to shower before hubby leaves for work.

I don't care.

Yes you do. You care because otherwise you'll be stuck with jammies, no makeup, and gross hair all day long.

My hair is gross no matter what. I'm post partum. It's falling out. Another good reason to just stay in bed.

Oh, come on. GET UP!

Didn't I tell you to shut up already?

Yes, but I'm not listening. You must get out of bed now. You have to see Ben off to school. You have to feed the baby. You have to be Mommy today.

But what about me? What about what I want? I want to sleep! I barely slept all night. I was too worried about Thomas' breathing. I was up sucking out his nose. I was up feeding him. I was up changing his diaper in the middle of the night. And even when I wasn't up, I just laid here willing him to keep breathing. It's hard work being me! I have needs too...I need to sleep now. Good night.

Hey. You signed up for this gig. You knew there'd be nights like that. You have to get up and do your job, and you have to do it with a smile. You're the set the tone around here. If you're grumpy all day, all the kids will be crabby and on edge. Now quit with the pitty party and roll your hiney out of bed.


Hey, guess what?

I'm not listening.

Well I just remembered something. You bought some new mascara yesterday! It has that new kind of brush, and it's supposed to make you look like a Cover model.

Gimme a break. I'll never look like a Cover model. Not with 10 gallons of mascara.

Yeah, but it'll be fun to try it right?

Oh, I suppose.

Alright then! GET UP.

I'm getting up, I'm getting up. You're a bitch you know. your mouth!


No problem. I understand. Even I'm tired this morning.

Oh, put on your big girl panties and deal with it.

ROFL. I am laughing so hard. I'm such a morning person. At night though...come 8pm I'm having conversations of "just stay up a bit longer" and "but I'm so tired"

Oh and hmm organization...only some rooms LOL.

Ha! Your post made me laugh... I love it! Today I got to be employee... not mommy. I love my kids but am grateful for the break. Wanna come to work with me? :)
When L was sick I was up in the middle of the night... not because she had awakened but because I had to check her breathing. I slept on the couch in the front room so I could be close to the swing.
Hope you get some rest soon!

PS. My hair is falling out too... must be something about our weeks postpartum.
