does the early bird really get the worm?

Once again I am getting up at the a$$ crack of dawn to be ready before the kids get up. It is just so much easier to get up, stumble to the shower, makeup, the whole routine without having to stop and answer ten thousand questions. It is nice to come down have a little cup of caffeine with a bit of creamer. Okay, more than a bit....but enough to wake up.

This morning I was joined by one little boy who was too excited to sleep that his dreams just "whisked me up and put me in your bed, Momma"......So when my alarm went off at six, he was ready and rearing to go.

We stepped outside (a brisk 66 degrees outside at that!) to let Josie out. Will noticed that this early in the morning you can hear the momma birds waking up the baby birds. He also said, "Who knew the skies are pink in the morning? Do they start out being girls, then turn into boys in the afternoon?"

UUGGhh....no, I don't think so, baby. I guess we have some transgendered clouds here in KY in the morning!

It was very peaceful and quiet. I wish I were a morning person who really appreciated all that ooyey gooey morning stuff! But I am not.

Oh well....happy Tuesday!

Mornings?? You know, I've heard of those. It's a weird sunset except it gets brighter and brighter out. Go figure.

LOL :)

I love dawns, and always have - it's just too bad that I can't stand getting up to see them. :) I usually say that dawn is my favorite time of day, but only if I get to see it and then go to bed (ie, up all night). ;)

Beautiful picture. :) I'm glad the kids are enjoying pre-school in KY so much. :)
