Sophie Saturday Morning Schedule

6:15: Wake up in mom and dad's bed. Remember fondly kicking mom in the back for half the night. Note mom's absence. Ask dad where mom is. Told sternly that mom is in my bed trying to get some sleep, and not to wake her up.

6:15-6:45: Strip down to panties and run shrieking through the house. Ask dad to get me a treat as he leaves the house to go get coffee.

6:45: squeal with glee when mom gets out of bed.

6:46-7:30: Sit on mom's lap watching "Dexter's Laboratory" and "Max and Ruby."

7:30: Sit down to breakfast of 2 raspberry Zingers and a cotton candy lollipop (good old dad) and a boiled egg and some grapes (freakin' mom).

7:30-8:00: Eat 2 bites of egg, one raspberry zinger, and 3 grapes. Then find some saltines in a bag on the table, and experiment with making cracker sandwiches out of remains of breakfast.

8:00-8:15: Clean up breakfast by dipping paper towel into my apple juice, wringing it out, and swiping it all over the table, repeatedly, and singing "Sing Sweet Nightingale." Cinderella's got nothing on me baby.

8:15-8:30: Sit on the counter and help mom load the dishwasher. Learn the game "Open your mouth and close your eyes and I will give you a big surprise." Wonder, why was I not taught this before? This is the bomb!

8:30-9:15: DANCE PARTY!! Drag bongos from bedroom to livingroom. Search for and find karaoke microphone. Dance with mommy (who looks very fetching in her pink mumu left over from when she was 9 months pregnant--wonder when she's going to do some laundry) to my favorite play list: Walk Like an Egyptian, Here Comes the Sun, Stayin' Alive, River of Dreams, Something to Talk About, Polly Wolly Doodle, The Tiki Tiki Tiki Room, I Love Rock and Roll, Lady Marmalade, You are My Sunshine, and Lollipop.

Yay for Saturday morning posts!

Even if they do mean you have to get out of bed at 6:45. Ouch.

Love you both muchly muchly!!

Let's make one thing abundantly clear. "Open Your Mouth and Close Your Eyes..." is NOT the bomb.

It is NOT.'s just that...

Let's just say that I had a bad experience...

A very bad experience...

...last week.

Soph does more (stripping, shreiking and dancing) before 9 am then most people do all day!

I LOVED the Tiki, Tiki, Tiki Room.

Sounds like she had a wonderfully eventful day! More fun than I can muster up in a week!

So where is the best and worst today? On vacation for the weekend?

That girl is non-stop. She wears me out in 4 minutes flat when I am watching her. Sorry I didn't come over, I decided to stay home and yell at my husband instead. I'll see you on Monday, and we'll talk.

I'm tired Just HEARING about your Saturday! The dancing sounds like great fun, but 6:45 am on a SAT MORNIING I would definitely NOT be in the mood for dancing. You are the greatest MOM!!!!!
