Sleeping in

First off, to any of you with 5 or more kids, you are now my American Idol. It has surprised me very much how tired I've been running every day with them. That being said...

I am blessed to have three children who sleep in (and a school start time of 9:05) If you are a similarly blessed parent you know how difficult it is when you have a friend sleep over who is an "early riser". Try doing that for eight days in a row. Then you'll understand my last blog post.

I wake up every morning early so that I can have some quiet time. A little "Laurie alone with her thoughts time" if you will. Not so much for the last week. Every time I tiptoe past my daughter's room in which my nephew is sleeping he pops up like a prairie dog. This was funny the first day, not so much the rest. Plus he likes to wake everyone else up for which I have threatened him with death if he does anymore.

Oh and as an aside...if you know that your friend is hosting two extra children for over a week and said friend already has three of her own, don't have your child (or children) call to ask to come over. I really don't need your extras. Thank you.
