I'd Rather Say Goodbye To The Trees & Leaves

Peanut awoke this morning very early. Mrs. Joe went and got her and flopped her into our bed with us. Usually she will fall back to sleep for awhile, but not this morning. Once we realized she wasn't going back to sleep, I went for the remote, hoping Noggin would keep her occupied for a little while longer.

Did I mention what time Peanut started her day? Try 5:45 am. Do you know what time Noggin starts their day? 6:00 am. That was a long 15 minutes for everybody. Once 6:00 am hit though, there he was, my saviour, Moose A. Moose singing the opening song;

"It's going to be a fantastic day..." Well, so far it couldn't have gotten much worse.

"...everybody shout hooray!" UGH!

"I'm using my noggin today." Not without some coffee.

I have decided it's much more enjoyable to listen to Moose sing the closing song at 6:00 pm, when Noggin goes off the air and it's time to start getting everybody ready for bed.

"It was a fun day, but now it's a done day."

wait until your kids outgrow noggin. I live for noggin. but around age 6, they want other stuff that doesn't come on that early.

The Learning Channel has awesome stuff in the early morning too...check it out. Hi 5 and Magic Schoolbus.

Ah yes, how many times I've reached for the remote control at 5:30 in the morning hoping and praying something Ethan liked would be on Disney.

I SOOOO wish we had Noggin. My parents do & our son loves it!!

i have this image of you singing that song at work all day.. lol..

i have an early riser. i use her as an alarm clock. she comes with her own snooze button built in . she'll be quiet for about 10 minutes before i feel her 2 inches from my face just staring.. "mom are you up yet" "no.. shhhh..." 10 minutes later.. "mom..."
i've resorted to keeping snacks beside the bed to give me an extra hour..

I'm sorry to say, but I just tune out the cries now.

I'm going to parent prison.

5:45? You're sleeping in, my friend. I had the 4:30am wakeup today... diurnal kids who awaken at the first hint of daylight kill ya in the months around the summer solstice.

That is parental torture!! I could not survive having to get up that early. I do believe I just duct taped my kids eyes and mouths closed every night before bed so as to ensure my beauty sleep was not disturbed.

Now, as they age, they sleep in.

There is a God afterall.
