Beat The Alarm Clock
A Pop Quiz!
Which of the following was the first to awaken Mama Simmons this morning?
A) Her full bladder
B) Her hungry baby
C) Her alarm clock
Those of you who chose 'C'... bless you. Unfortunately, that is incorrect... but I really appreciate the sentiment.
The correct answer is 'A'. 4:30 AM wake up to nature's call. As I headed to the bathroom, I was pleasantly surprised to find that all was quiet in the baby's room. Is tonight the night? Is she going to sleep through the night? I laid in bed awake wondering if maybe, just maybe, my alarm would beat Moana to the morning?
After an hour of my head spinning and wondering if she was actually sleeping through the night, I heard the cry. In the game of Alarm Clock vs. Moana, Moana wins. Darn. I shouldn't complain though. She slept from 10:30 to 5:30, which is a new record.
Clare commented on my last post that she was surprised that I would break my running streak because of a little 60 mph wind storm... Oh ye of little faith... I'm an addict, didn't you know? If you were here at 8:30 last night, you would have found me at the gym ticking off 7:40's on the treadmill. Boo YA! ;)
The wind storm continues today. So much wind that all the schools on the island are closed. Yep. Wind day. That's what school kids on Oahu get instead of snow days. In their defense though, it would be challenging to teach a bunch of kids when the power keeps going out from all those pesky downed power lines.
