Besides the mornings............ cuz I am NOT a morning person.............., bedtime is my LEAST favorite time of day. It usually takes a good hour to get my girls settled into bed. Yes it is probably all my fault for not following "baby wise", I am an adamant non-baby-wise mom and have huge issues with that book and that could be a whole nother post!! anyways I really dislike bedtime cuz I hate that the last thing of the day is me getting frustrated with the kids and I usually end up raising my voice, and I hate that that happens. Bed time when daddy is not home is harder and ends up with the girls crying for their daddy.............I cannot seem to win.
When I dreamed of being a mom I had visions of my children with their soft angelic curls bouncing around their faces running to me to kiss me good night, sing my praises and tell me how much they love me and will see me in the morning and will dream of me all night...........instead my reality is little girls with snags and twigs in their hair that is in desperate need of a brush, dinner needing to be wiped off their faces and fighting their sisters who has to kiss their mom good night first.....well maybe not to that extreme but some nights that is a pretty good description!
They fight me tooth and nail as if falling asleep is some major crime that I am forcing them to commit. Right now even they are crying "I want my daddy" and kicking their legs on their beds. It doesn't help that we are all sleeping in 1 room right now in our friends basement. Not that I am not grateful cuz I am!!
Ok now they are mimicking Hailey who is wailing the loudest......ok I am snickering.... how can they take me seriously????
so what about you? what is your least favorite time of day and why?
