"You can't get a cup of tea big enough or a book long enough to suit me."

Waking up to Opeie in the morning is amazing,  tiring but amazing. In the 18 months he has been with us he has woken up anytime between 4-8am. Sometimes its so difficult to wake myself up properly and i end up sitting in the lounge with him feeling like a zombie. Having to put Barney or Mickey Mouse on that early doesn't really help in the waking up, feels like my eyes are taking a stand against these annoying programs.

This time of the morning is our special 'boy time' and its the only time that Mrs M can properly get into a deep sleep as throughout the night he is very demanding. Opeie's a huge milk monster. Today i got a bit of a lie in as Opeie didn't wake up till 7 which was great after the 3 hours sleep i got the night before.

All i could think about when i woke up was a nice big cup of tea and a piece of toast with peanut butter and jam on. Its amazing how much difference a simple cup of tea can make to your morning motivation. It really does kick start me into action.

Opeie as usual wanted to read as many books as he could grab and Seth got up and read a few to him too, which gave me a minute or two to fully enjoy my tea and toast. Well I'm fully awake now so we can begin the playing. I love the weekends when Seth is off school and we can spend some quality time together. Apparently later today there is going to be a HUGE Imaginext battle as yesterday Seth brought the Green Lantern with the remainder of his birthday money.

So let the battle commence..... well maybe after one more cuppa.

You're healthier than me, I normally grap a cup of tea and chocolate for a sugar boost!
