THIS is being a grown up?

If so, I'd like to be demoted, please.

The morning routine, worked backwards:

8:00 - my workday starts.  Ergo...
7:30 - leave daycare for work
7:00 - leave home for daycare
6:30 - Bob leaves for work
5:30 - Bob feeds Charlotte breakfast/Charlotte needs to be done nursing
5:00 - Nurse Charlotte

Bringing us to the grand finale/beginning:

4:30 - MY ALARM CLOCK GOES OFF!!!

That gives me wiggle room to wake up enough to stand up and pull on some sweatpants, use the bathroom, get her up (if she isn't already,) change her diaper, and manuever downstairs with her.  I am NOT a morning person.  I used to struggle to get out of bed at 7:00.  Now, at 7:00 I've been up for two and a half hours.

This is not fun.

But.  In eighty-six days she won't be nursing anymore (sez me,) and Bob and I can take turns on breakfast duty.  Probably by the week, I think.  So I'll be able to set my alarm back to 5:30 some weeks and 6:00 others.  Sad, how that sounds luxurious.

We're about to get pasted by some purple spots on the radar screen.  Glad it's Friday.
