A Smacking Wake Up Call


Since Isabelle was at Grandma and Grandpa’s last night we only had one extra baby in the bed with us when we woke up this morning. I’m sure many of you have seen the below picture by itself and on the chart of many different positions….

Sleeping: H is for Hell

Well, I would like to add one to the known ones called “The Smacking Wake Up Call.”

My husband is a VERY deep sleeper and our kids know this. Everytime they try to wake him up in the morning, it usually becomes a team effort with lots of yelling and shaking and pushing.

This morning I woke to a sound I heard repeated but couldn’t place. So I rolled over to see hubby facing away from me, fast asleep, with William in between us. He was up on his knees with his hands on Daddy’s side/shoulder. I watched William start squatting and say “Ready….” then up on his knees again. Start squatting and say “Set….” and then up on his knees again. Start squatting again and say “Go!!!” Then shoot up on his knees and smack Daddy in the face!!!

I watched him repeat this again and hubby still didn’t wake up (he wasn’t smacking him lightly, he should have felt it). So, trying to contain my laughter, I reached over and shook hubby awake and told him I can’t believe he wasn’t awake because William was just smacking him in the face to wake him up. Hubby’s response without moving to show he woke up was “I know, that last one woke me up.” What I didn’t point out though was if he was awake, why did it take so long for me to wake him up?


“Mommy, Are You Happy?”


My beautiful daughter always has a way of making me smile, either when I’m sad or even just at random thoughout the day.


Everytime she sees me crying or sees me mad or upset, she walks up to me and puts her hand on my shoulder to get my attention. Then she looks at me and in the sweetest voice says “Mommy, Are You Happy?” I cannot help but smile when she asks me 🙂 I always answer yes.

Tonight she is spending the night at her Grandma and Grandpa’s, and I had been getting a little frustrated because her and William weren’t listening very well. So she walks up and asks me “Mommy, Are You Happy?” I said yes and she made my night instantly better again. I love my baby girl so much ❤
