i have matured and realized i needed to start taking it a little easy on the sugar. i especially realized this when i went to a party and a stranger watched me add sugar and asked if i wanted coffee to go with my sugar. i was a little embarrassed.
i now have perfected the cup of coffee. it has just the right amount of sugar that i no longer get funny stares. and enough cream to make it a tan color instead of black.
but the reason for this blog post is to not tell you how i make the perfect cup of coffee. it is to tell you that coffee is seriously magic. let me explain...
(DISCLAIMER: i know i am very blessed to have a baby sleep through the night, so i am in no way complaining in this blog post.)
landon has always been a good sleeper. he use to go down around 7 and wake up around 7... sometimes 8!! it was wonderful. but something happened over the past three months. he still goes down around 7-7:30... but wakes up anywhere between 4:30-6. this is early. and i feel like dying some mornings. i live for the morning nap... LIVE FOR IT! i will lay on the floor with a pillow and blanket and "rest my eyes" as he plays with his toys around me. every once in a while i will feel his hand grab at my hair. or at my face (this is usually when i realize it is time to cut his finger nails.)
after the morning nap... i still feel like death. landon chooses the length of our nap and he usually decides for us to sleep about an hour. sometimes a little less. sometimes a little more. if i had the control of our morning nap, we would sleep until noon.
after i pick up my smiley little guy up from his morning nap... we head straight to the coffee machine. i take my first sip... and magic. i go from feeling like death to feeling like i could run a marathon in only ten minutes. M-A-G-I-C! i am ready for the day and everything is has to offer.
does coffee have a "magical" affect on you?
do/did you have an "early riser?" I'll take ANY suggestions to help him sleep later!! :)
