Funny that I have my alarm set for 6:30 every morning so I can wake up and be productive before the W wakes up, but I have never actually been able to sleep that late. It becomes a chore to turn off the alarm every day, but I refyooose to change the time.  Our rooster has been crowing at 4:30 AM. This beautiful hour in the morning is sponsored by the durn virus that prevents W from eating more than a few bites of anything.

Also funny that 16 months of sorta decent parenting can melt away with 5 days of please drink anything and please watch more tv you are so sick.  W begs me to watch Elmo and Mighty Machines all day.  Eventually I give in and turn it on, but then he asks me to switch it to the other one within 5 minutes..and then to the other one...and then to the other one - Lala, no Brmm Brmm, no Lala, no Brrm Brmm.   We need to cut the TV cold turkey even if it causes the shakes (for me).  Also, he begs for juice which means anything in a juice box that he can make a huge mess with.  Fancy cups can't compete with the magic of the cardboard box with straw insert.

Funny that the highlight of my morning is picking out what scent will be in our house.  Today is Scentsy Two Harbors.  I liiiike.

Not funny that I am already having anxiety about moving and changing our routine and meeting new people and and and 20ish hours in the car with a 16 month old.  I like change as much as your average 84 year old.

Tonight some food trucks are coming to our hood so that means no dinner cooking for me!  Should be fun.  Also, W and I ran to the liquor store yesterday...seriously, we took our huge jogging stroller inside the store lined with delicate breakable expensive bottles. Worth it, yes. Those spicy grapefruit margaritas are even better than you would think!

4:30! I didn't know you could wake up at 4:30 in the morning! You have our sympathies and I think Lala and Brrrm Brrrm are necessary. Yikes!

Glad he's feeling better!
