  1. Hee! Hee! Hee!
    Love it - 8:40 am!

    Wishing you a great day Mama!

  2. Mario bros. theme - good call! I would think some sort of silly obstacle course might be in order.

  3. I'm ready for a nap! hehe

    Mario Bros!!! Too cool! Since they're plumbers, you could do some water game activity? Maybe leaky water balloons? Hide little princess cut outs and have them find them to "save" her??

    Ok, that's a hard one. But fun sounding!!!!

  4. My goodness! What time do you wake up girl? Whew, that's exhausting!

  5. I'm not sure if this is exactly what you intended, but you captured the "grind" very well! Oh that blasted clock.

  6. We are living parallel lives.

    P.S. Can I come over and play in your mulch pile?

  7. Too funny, thanks for the laugh! It's amazing what one can accomplish in the early hours, isn't it?

    Good luck with the party!

  8. i love this.

    i hope the cable guy was on time.

  9. Oh, man! You cracked me up! Especially with the "explain why you cannot invite yourself to someone's house for a playdate."

  10. Well, I don't know if the same rules apply to those with cool Spiderman shooters. Just sayin'.

  11. Oh man. Will you get mad at me if I tell you Kayla woke me up at 8am? I hope the cable guy came at a reasonable time.

  12. wow...the morning of a mother...and they thinking working dads' jobs are tedious? That's a whole lot of diaper changing there! I had NO idea! O__@!!

  13. The MARIO BROS! What a fantastic birthday party idea!

  14. I loved this! And boy can I relate.
