And I had a lol about the A B C's with the fruits. I also have OCD and I don't think that would work for me either.....

Whoa, poxy!! Hang in there girl, let us know what us nocturnal mamas can do for you, I guess you're at least guaranteed a midnight++++ chat with us.

Haven't been on this thread for ages. My mom died in May and right after I got back from visiting my dad, we moved. It's been a pretty turbulent spring.

So glad to be back here, though! I missed Mothering. I'm a slow poster but I love to lurk. And post on this thread.

It's not quite night where I am. DH set up his electronic drum kit in DS's room, so they've both been playing it, it's so sweet and this way the neighbors won't complain, especially since it will mostly be played between 11 pm and 3 am.

Poxy, how're things. Been thinking about you, mama

i think it's when you throw marshmallows at the kids and call it breakfast, then sweep them out the door to beg on the street.

Poxybat - Good luck with your move. Sorry it's been rough for you lately.

Majikfaerie - you're so funny. Of course, my dd would love it if I threw marshmallows at her head and called it breakfast - as long as the dogs didn't get to them first.

Speaking of dogs, our new dog is a morning person! Go figure. Our other dog will sleep late, oh, why oh why can't Charlie? He's sweet and we love him though.

The dog is a furry family member. Morning person sounds funnier than morning dog. And he thinks it is his job to be chipper and friendly and wake me up. This is annoying to me, so I decided he was a morning person. He should know better than to bug me before I have my coffee.

Oh no, Starflower! This is my biggest fear. We want to get a dog, but it absolutely can't be a morning person. I thought since people were their alpha, they'd just follow the pack. Ok, this is definitely going on the list of questions to ask.

I wouldn't worry too much about morning dogs. Ours is already starting to chill a bit as long as our bedroom door is closed. He's been waiting longer to get up lately so maybe their schedules can be changed.

But a friend of mine told me that her cat jumps on her to wake her up every morning at 4:30. Then if she doesn't get up, the cat jumps up on the bedside table and starts jumping on her clock radio until the music turns on. My friend then puts the cat out of the room and goes back to bed.

I went to a movie tonight: "Julia and Julie." I enjoyed it. It'd been a long time since I'd seen a movie that wasn't for children.

Now I'm thinking about making popcorn and watching a movie on DVD or maybe something recorded off the TV. I didn't have popcorn at the movie. I like home-popped much better.

Yay, there are other nocturnals awake tonight!

I had a cat who was a morning person. If hands were dangling out of bed, he'd attack. And if they weren't, he climbed behind the bed between the mattress and the wall, and scratched. Add that to already disrupted sleep from pregnancy, a loud snorer in the bed and a job that required me to get up early...I did not appreciate it.

PS. I haven't been around here much, recently. Mainly, I finished the M.Ed. and then I discovered sleeping when the baby sleeps. My days are starting earlier with her than they did with her brother...
