Manic Monday - Night

MM Headquarters ~ Previous MMs

I went to bed last night as tired as I could be.
I tried to find a comfy position,
But, this baby girl in my belly just would not let me.
Beside me lay a snug two year old with his feet on my head.
At this very moment, I wondered why he was not in his own bed.

My back aches, my legs are cramping and I can't get any rest.
At 2 AM I am wondering if the recliner is not best.
Eventually I'm fast asleep dreaming of the days ahead.
Only to be awakened at 7 AM when I should have already been out of bed!!

I jumped up screaming because I am running behind.
There are a thousand and one things I need to do and they're all on my mind.
It's just another Manic Monday morning with no sleep for this tired Mom.
I am looking for some coffee and trying to stay calm.

I wonder how the day will go when it has started out this way.
I try to keep a positive outlook but it's really hard to say.
Keep your fingers crossed for me because the day has just begun.
Now, I'm in a hurry and this post is late so now I must run!!!

Well, it can only get better right? Just saying. I so remember these days honey. Take a deep breath and just smile that beautiful smile of yours and everything will be fine. Sixty-six more days honey. Big hug and lotsa lovies. :)

Oh man... go for the recliner. It's hard enough to sleep that far along without a morning like that to face the next day. I hope you got more leep tonight.
