Photostory Friday: so not a morning person

I am NOT a morning person. I have never been a morning person. I could care less about seeing a great sunrise. I think perky people in the morning are the worst. By the time they are on their third or fourth sentence, I am still registering the, "Good morning!...." that is usually said in some sing songy voice that reminds me of birds chirping in Snow White. So you get the picture.

Then I had two kids back to back. Will has been a morning person from infancy. He used to wake up at 5:45, then ready to take a nap at 7:45. Oh yeah, I could totally handle that. Then a mere sixteen months later, along came Livi. She is a morning person as well.....but she is a perky talkative morning person. She wakes up talking and doesn't stop until she goes back to bed.

"Good morning, Mommy! I saw the sun peeking through my curtains (though at 6:45 I HIGLY doubt that was the sun), so I knew it was time to get up. Time to get up and rise and shine. yada yada, yak yak...." I still have not have a cup of coffee. The coffee is prepped to start at 7:00.


But being up this early, I do get to see pink sunrises. I am still working on getting those gorgeous sunburst shots....but this one above is a start.

I may never be a morning person, but I can prep that coffeepot to start earlier!

Happy PSF y'all!

ha ha - I so appreciate this post- I AM NOT a morning person - never have been - I don't think I ever will. It took me awhile but I have trained 2 of my 3 children to NOT be morning people either. My daughter will still tap on my eyelid bright and early to wakeie wakeie

Honey i'm not a mornin person either but neither is Madison OR Stacy. I can handle stumbling to the door to let the pooch out to potty and then right back to bed on the week-ends!
People who are perky in the morning make me want to STAB them!

I love that picture! I used to be a morning, but three kids (and a jabberbox daughter) has changed that!

Livi is good for you...she gets you to see things you ordinarily wouldn't :-)

Oh no. Don't hate me. I think I'm that perky morning person. My guy crows by 5 or 6 am at the latest so I'm an earlybird. :O

I agree, I think Livi is SO good for you too! :)

I am a perky happy morning person. I am pretty much worthless after 3pm. I go to bed at 9. Seriously. My dd is a carbon copy of me. My son is a nightowl. Oh how it drives me crazy

I am not a morning person either. lol! My girls are starting to become one though. Each day the last few weeks they've been getting up earlier and earlier...I just want to lay in bed a few more minutes. lol!

You are right though, the sunrises are beautiful. You captured a brilliant phase of pink and it's lovely! Great job!

haha, if your blog commentors could, they'd kill moi.....i am just what Livi is....chatter, chatter, natter, natter, yada, yada..the minute I get up.....with or without caffeine flowing through my system.........while my husband is completely zonked out in mornings..he's no coffe drinker..so there's no way to help him..and guess what lately we hav been driving to work together.........it's funny how we operate.....he would nod or mutter a yeah here and there....while I just have that "need to tell" which springs up only in mornings......:)
