I’m not a morning person. In fact, I have to try very hard to be a nice person before 8 am, but it works out alright. Specially now that I have children I have really learned to tone down my morning temper. Sometimes it doesn’t work though, when Luna wakes up a couple of times during the night and just when I’ve fallen asleep again, Luca calls crying and I need to get up and bring him to our bed just to be waken up again by a chatty Luna at 5 am. Time to get up! Then I can be like thunder at least until I get breakfast. Luckily those days don’t come by too often (knock on wood!). But lately Luna has made her new wake up time 4-5 am (for a while it was 7 or even 8 am so I’ve been spoiled). Goodmorning! However, now it sounds like she says “mama” so, that makes a lot easier to get up.
Both children now go to bed around 7 or 8 pm. I love putting them to bed, even though logistics sometimes don’t allow me to put both to bed (as well as somedays are daddy days). I love reading bedtime stories, turning off the light, having a little chat about the day before the eyes close for the day. Hearing the breathing slowing down. The peace. It’s just so cosy. And then…. then I fall asleep… when I wake up again, my mood isn’t the best – again. Until I get something to eat. And then it’s time to go to bed again, because I don’t know how long I will get to sleep! Goodnight!
