Yes, it’s true – after months of getting my posts out on time I have managed to let life get in the way. Today’s post is officially late. I can’t tell you how late, but I started writing it 15 minutes after it usually goes live. Whoops. I’d love to say it was because I was out last night having a great time until all hours. The truth is I had a killer case of ‘cantfallasleepitis’ coupled with kid #1 waking every hour and a half with fever dreams. At one point he thought his room was on fire and wanted us to come and blow it out. A different time he woke rambling on about something Tom and Jerry related. He would wake, hubby (blessed hubby!) would deal with it. I would wake also, listen and then spend the next hour trying to fall back asleep.
The last nail in the coffin – kid #2 woke screaming at 5:15am, 15 minutes before I was supposed to wake up and write this post. After lots of cuddling we managed to get her back down and flop back into bed minutes before the alarm.
If I was more dedicated – or heck, getting paid to do this – I might have managed to shovel myself out of bed, dribble down the stairs and craft a post about a topic we actually care about. Sorry, dedication and grit will only get you so far and I need to survive the day with the smear of wits the night has left intact. I shut off the alarm, buried my head in the pillow, and waited for the kids to wake for the day.
It’s officially ‘Attack of the Zombie Mom’ day!
Beware the Mombie!
