Morning always comes too soon. Mothers aren’t always able to sleep through the night, rarely get the recommended daily allowance of sleep (everyone is worried about the kids getting enough sleep but they get more than their moms!) and don’t often allow themselves to take a nap due to that ever-growing To Do List and their self-imposed burden of guilt.
My morning cup of coffee, or two or three, isn’t a luxury, it is a necessity.
I’ve often joked that an IV would be a wiser choice, but I hate needles.
Besides, I love my cups. They are a way I encourage myself in parenting.
I splurged and bought this cup on clearance for myself after Grace was born, my fourth child in six years. I remember the work, but I remember the joy of another beautiful little girl. It was like getting another new baby doll. Babies are SO worth the work!
Jess, I have thought about this all week. In fact, tonight Scott and I talked about your question and came up with a list of answers for you. Some, I'll blog, hopefully soon. Some, we'll save for face to face conversation. When can you guys come out? 🙂 Thanks for asking, it has made us think a lot this week.
What would you do the the same Mindy? What do you not regrest at all? And then, what if anything would you change? e-mail me sometime. Jared and I have often wanted to ask someone we love and admire this, but haven't wanted to seem insulting, but we so want advice BEFORE the kids get beyond certain stages. Any words of wisdom?
Love the coffee cup's, by the way.
I don't know about the spices. I would assume so, though none of them came up as an allergy. He is having me avoid them for six months, then we will see. I don't blame you for not wanting to take it, but believe me, after what it did to me yesterday, it is worth it. Even if I can't have chocolate or icecream. Now I'm wondering if all the times I felt so horrible were somehow connected to my allergies.
