Why I Love My Children and Ignore Them

March 7, 2013 by Rieshy

I got up at 5 a.m. this morning to make coffee and found this note.

I laughed; I felt love for a young son who always wants a head-start on his school work, and who realizes that next to my coffee maker is the only logical place to leave me a note. Then I ignored it.

Just because I get up a 5 a.m. does not mean that I want the household up at 5 a.m.  Love is sometimes easier in a quiet house with a lonely cuppa joe.

Basically I loved this before I read it, the title alone is awesome. I do the same thing. Geesh. In fact right now I am guiltlessly letting my children watch cartoons while I bask in the alone time with my precious cup of joe. We will all have a great day if Mom has some time to wake up in peace. ;P
Five a.m. though? Not sure if I'm willing to pull that for alone time. But then again I only have 3.

I came here from the WTM forums. I just have to tell you how much I enjoyed reading your blog. You're funny and insightful and your children are adorable.
