It doesn't happen often, but sometimes I wake-up before the kids. I love to get up before them. I love to start my coffee and grab one of my favorite magazines (I am a self proclaimed magazine junkie) one of my absolute favorites is Real Simple. After the coffee brews and I pour a hot cup, I add just a touch of coffee mate. Then I sit down at the kitchen table and enjoy my magazine -alone - for just a few minutes before the day begins. Ahh the sweet sound of silence! If I'm lucky I may even get to finish an entire cup before Little Man's adorable voice squeaks a very loud "I'm ready for my breakfast!" and Sweet Girl bounces in with her usual morning, "can I watch TV now?" And the morning noises begin - and I am still very happy!
