5 in the a.m.

So what is going on in your house at 5 in the morning? Hopefully sleeping. In our house I am the only one who does not believe 5a.m. is the proper time to wake up in the morning. At 5 we have a dad that is on the computer because of his inability to sleep to a decent hour, a baby sister waking up (but who is being trained to go back to sleep after a nice tall glass of formula), and a big sister who takes full advantage of her early morning alone time to do the things I would normally put a stop to.
The upside to an early morning...the three hours of MY alone time during the day when the kiddos are napping.
Here is what Ry was up to on Saturday morning. I'm working on channeling this energy into actual cleaning instead of pretend cleaning which ironically only makes the house dirtier (exhibit a: the pile of dishes by the sink Ry pulled out of the dishwasher and drawers. exhibit b: the little flood on the counter top.).

So funny! I agree 5am is not proper time to wake up.

That's still almost the middle of the night for me...but Bryce has the same problem Rylee does, and things just end up disappearing if he's left to his own devices!

5 am - yes that makes me tired just thinking about it!

and thanks for your last post, it did make me feel better! I think our 3 year olds have a LOT in common. oh so much. And anger management therapy? I definitely relate! I used to think i was a fairly level headed person but lately....many times I catch myself and think, "if someone was video taping you and you had to watch this back....you would look psycho!!" and then every night i pray for forgiveness for all the mom areas I failed in that day and patience for the next day!

Oh wow Steph I thought Matt dragging me out of bed at 6:30 to do P90X this week was bad. I shouldn't complain anymore. 5 AM would KILL me. I laughed when you said you are in the process of training baby sis to go back to sleep with formula. :) That is exactly what I do every morning with Ty at 6 AM.:)!! Love it!!
