Why am I up so early? Am mom. Was up before the sun. Have already been out. Have coffee, will travel. It’s chilly and the wind is whippin! Why haven’t I been able to get in bed at a decent hour for the last five nights? Am mom. Have been up to collect child, 10:30-11:45pm all week. Am proud mom, quite pleased, but as all parents, AM TIRED. Kid is tired, too. Kid is runnin on fumes. Took the kid to the first thing, then we’ll drive to the second thing, then we’ll come home, then we’ll pick the kid up from another thing. THEN WE WILL ALL EAT LINNER AND HAVE A REST. Cause guess what? There’s another thing this evening! I hope you have a day of happy things, too, but maybe don’t run yourself ragged. And if you do, smooth out on Sunday like me, okay?
