dropping hints

August 15, 2011

Every morning after she wakes up and I bring her downstairs, Sienna makes a bee-line for the first pair of shoes she can lay her sticky hands on, pokes her feet inside them, and clomps around the house, occasionally banging on the front door as hard as she can.

If she could talk, I think she would say, “I’ve already been awake for 14.8 seconds, why aren’t we outside yet MOM!”

Well for starters, it’s 6:30 in the morning, your diaper weighs approximately 9 pounds, and my eyes are still half shut.

What on earth would I do without this funny little fireball of energy?  The one who wakes up by 6 every morning and does. not. stop. moving. until 1 p.m. when she finally passes out. But her nap only lasts for about an hour (maybe two if I’m extremely lucky), because I think she was born with an alarm in her brain that starts blaring in her head after 60 minutes of inactivity. Because that’s 60 precious minutes that she could’ve used to pull every single item out of every single cupboard or find a way to climb onto the highest part of the couch and then jump off. Over and over again. Or rip the petals off all the flowers outside. So after she wakes up from her brief nap, she is banging on the door again, ready to go play outside and throw fistfulls of gravel into the grass and all kinds of mischief. 

 And then usually around 10 at night she has exhausted herself to the point where sometimes she literally falls over asleep on the floor.

So what would I do without her? I guess maybe sit down for more than 3 seconds at a time.
