This was morning #2 and the outcome was a 7:30 a.m. run to get donuts for the girls and a much larger, much stronger coffee for the mother who has been awakened at the unholy hour of 5:30 for the second. morning. in a row. This is after at least 4 middle of the night trips to empty my bladder of the 3 drops that are in it and the girls keeping each other up much later laughing and talking. Which basically transforms me into a twitching ball of anger, and them into cranky, sleepy messes, unless placated by some Starbucks and a couple donut holes. So we're ok, for now.
But for real, I don't know if I could keep this up if they don't start sleeping longer.
My hypothesis is that they both wake up that early in general and then go back to sleep until about 6:30, but since they are in the room together they're all excited and just HAVE to get up and start talking and wake their otherwise slumbering mother.
I think I can hold out hope that the novelty of sleeping just feet from each other will soon ware off and the knowledge that if they do not sleep later, their mother turns into an over-sized angry sloth will soon set in for them and make them sleep later. Also, them sleeping in the same room is most certainly not doing their day time relationship any favors since they are both exhausted from sleep loss and therefore constantly biting each others' heads off all day.

Until then, I have been staring at my "treat receipt" from the Bucks, seriously considering going back this afternoon for my discounted drink. They really know how to reel in the sleep deprived SAHM- kudos on the technique there, starbucks.

If you listened to all this gratuitous rambling, you deserve a delicious coffee drink, so go get one and have a great Thursday.
