We are early risers at this house.  Typically the girls are up by 6:00.  Celia has a clock in her room that turns green when she is allowed to get up.  She usually is watching the clock when it turns green and has been watching it for 30 minutes.  Audrey gets up between 5:45 and 6:15.  When we are lucky, she sometimes sleeps past 6:30.

Yesterday I kept them busy.  Last week I was sidelined from walking/running because I tore up my feet walking to our pool with flip flops.  I know not the smartest thing but I had very bad blister on the bottom of my foot that was the primary issue.  I was excited that it was healing and that it was not a rainy day as it seems to be doing a lot of that around here.  So we walked to our local library, it is I think around 3 miles from our house, may be more, not sure.  Pushing the two girls in my BOB duallie is quite a workout and getting to be more and more each month!!  The library by the way just celebrated it's 150th birthday.  It is the library that I went to as a kid and now the two girls get to enjoy it!  We picked up some books on hold and then browsed for some other good reads.  The girls spent some time on the computer and played with the little birthday pretend area.

We then piled back into the BOB, snacks to prevent sleepy heads and headed on our way home.  We were in a rush to get home early so that we could eat lunch early and get Audrey down for a nap.  The pool was open from 12 to 3 and we wanted to get in at least an hour.  We succeeded.  It is not always easy to get everything together for an early nap.  Celia crafted and I worked on laundry, cleaning, and school stuff while Audrey napped.  Before we knew it we were at the pool in the freezing cold water.  We had a good time and then headed back home to shower, craft some more, play, and make dinner.  It was a really good day.

I told Pete that I thought I had worn them out and that Audrey would sleep through the night.  Sure enough, both girls did not make a peep last night.  I had to wake them up this morning.  I can not remember the last time I had to wake both girls up!

So this is what our breakfast table looked like this morning.   The flowers in between Celia and Audrey are to prevent Celia from looking at Audrey because per Audrey's rules that is not ok in the morning (at this current time I think that she will allow someone to look at her between the hours of 1:30 am and 3:00 am).

By the way, it took a lot of convincing for me to be able to brush Audrey's hair.  "it ok Mommy, no brush".   She had the iPad in front of her while I brushed the crazy mess, I did not make a whole lot of headway!

So cute! I was kind of like that as a child too - I hated mornings and didn't want anyone to look at/talk to me until I was fully awake!
