Mama Said There'd Be Days Like This...

I've had this song running through my head this week. Some of my days are so sweet. I end the day not having regrets, not wishing I'd done something different or said something nicer. Today was one of those days.
Our children still wake up early. Someone wakes up before the rooster every day. They don't pay attention to the clock or the recent time change. A few days ago Max was up at 4:40! I had to tell him to go back to sleep. He was ready for the day. I wasn't.
Charlotte is usually the last one up (good girl). Grant is usually our first riser. He has always been an early riser. He is also the one who could probably use a nap in the afternoon. I can tell when he starts crying about the simplest things. I know he misses Daddy. I do too. I give him a hug and he's better.
Ben starts sucking his thumb when he's tired or hungry. He still carries around a white cloth that is shredded and knotted. It's his comfort. He likes it when I call him "my sugar bunny bear". 

It's a wonderful thing being a Mommy. I feel like I am living a miracle each and every day.  It was dark by 4:30 today and they were ready for sleep early. I'm sure tomorrow one of them will be up before the rooster!

  1. It's true. I remember missing sleep, but now all I miss is the babies who grew up and moved away. Good for you, enjoying all the good life brings.

  2. you've sweetened my day, sister. love.

  3. Brought back memories of you and your brothers and sisters growing up. In my mind there are still little ones gathered around the dining room table. Sweet tender and always in my heart.
    Always love, Mother, Grammie B.

  4. How are your doing? I think of you often with your busy daily life...plodding along...but with daily blessings mixed in. I love all of the photos of the children...never a dull moment around your home.
    love you!

  5. It is funny you had that song running through your mind..."Strange days indeed! Most peculiar Mama!" I enjoy John Lennon's songs...he was an amazing song writer.
