Mean Mommy

I have never hidden the fact that I am NOT a morning person.  I have an extremely hard time functioning before 8:00a (and that is pushing it!)  I once had a boss who wouldn't call the office before 9:00a because he didn't want to talk to Mean Jennifer.  This was not really an issue when I only had myself to worry about; actually, it wasn't really an issue when I just had Mini because she would sleep in with me.  Now that Mini is older she is up earlier and I have not been able to convince her that 6:00a is NOT acceptable.  Plus the twins wake up early so that by the time I get them settled again Mini is up.  This has turned me into a very bitter mommy. 

In fact one could call me Mean Mommy.  I try very hard not to get angry with the kids but I am having a hard time with it simply because I feel so out of it that I can't function.  Sleep is not necessarily the answer because, while it does help, I still have a hard time functioning that early.  Coffee really isn't an option as I can't stand the taste and caffeine only helps minimally.  There is no way I can get up before the kids because that would mean getting up at 4:30a and I don't even want to THINK about that!  I haven't found a solution yet but I'll keep looking because I don't want my kids to suffer.

My husband

My husband is an amazing man.  He works his but off and feels guilty when he can't make it home in the middle of the day to spend time with us.  He cooks dinner just as often as me and does his own laundry.  When I have completely had it after a long day with the kids he jumps in to help out.  He brings me chocolate when he knows I'm down.  He keeps me sane.

That is not to say that he doesn't drive me absolutely INSANE!  Guess that's why I love him so much.
