I finally gave it up and made muffins to prevent breakdown at about 7:15...with earphones and music so I could pretend I was alone. Well...one ear was phoned that is, can't exactly leave a 1 and 2 year old beyond your hearing.
So here is to embracing a morning unlike what you'd hoped, snuggling on the couch, eating muffins and counting down to very early morning nap time.
And here's a little secret, while the kiddos sleep and darling husband works down in the basement I will be rearranging furniture and wall hangings like a mad woman. These are the kinds of things my man thinks me crazy for, so I have to do it when he's not looking which is tough since he works from home. Maybe some pictures to follow.
