Mommy Life- Unexpected Wake Up Calls and Pregnancy Pillow Pillages

Mommy Life Eh? Well, today has been eventful as a whole. I can’t say that I was bored at any which point of the day- which CAN be a positive but also a negative, but this morning… THAT was something else… My Mommy Life is getting the best of me.

Mommy LifeIt all started with a unexpected wake up call. I snoozed comfortably in my bed at an astonishing 6:30 am the dog started to whine, and when I say whine I don’t mean little tiny cries I mean horrifying heart wrenching shrieks! Maybe if I said she started yelping that would describe it better…. is this Mommy Life?

I, of course tried to rush out of bed… Oh yeah, pregnant lady you CAN’T move that fast and if you try your always reliable but not always practical pregnancy pillow, whom you have named “Edwardo” will beg you to stay in bed with him. He will attempt at grasping at your every body part, making it nearly impossible for you to leap from your bed. This will go about causing quite the fight between the love of your life (Edwardo), the sheets, and your comforter.

As I fought for my right to leave the bed, I somehow managed to get attacked by the bedside table. He MUST be in cahoots with Edwardo! The bedside table managed to wallop me in the back of the head, I think it was trying to knock me out so I couldn’t leave. I ignored it and finally sprung myself from what used to be the comforts of my bed, but what had then become a war zone…

I won… that’s right Edwardo you can’t control me.

Once finally free, I realized the dog was at our bedroom door trying to get out, so I opened the door and followed her down the stairs to the back door where she was already begging to go out. I let her out and she of course ran off to do her business…. I thought I was the only one in this house that had that kind of urgency to pee. Guess not. She came back in a few seconds later, clearly relieved and I made the journey back up the stairs… carefully.

I finally returned to my Edwardo, who had clearly calmed down since our big fight.. (thank goodness because I couldn’t stand another second being mad at him)… welcomed me back with warm snuggles. Just as I was about to drift back to blissful sleep, my 3 year old Little Man traipsed into the room boldly stating; “I WAKED UP.” So you did Little Man, So you did.

I am STILL Considering running away to a hotel for a weekend so I can sleep- This isn’t the first time I have considered this either- and it won’t be the last. This is what Mommy Life is for me, especially in the mornings. 

Is your Mommy Life anything like this?
