Sleeping In – One of Life’s Little Pleasures
As a mom, I find myself getting up at the same time every single day including the weekends. It is inevitable that on a Saturday morning my son will come running into my room with the sun. It is very rare that I get to sleep past 7:30am on the weekends. What I wouldn’t give to sleep in at least once per month.
Well, for the first time in ages, OK, maybe a year I actually slept in late. I sent my son to spend sometime with his Gamma this weekend. So I went to bed and woke up the next morning at 10:15am. Yes I slept in, how glorious. As I laid in bed looking at the clock on the ceiling (I have one of those clocks that projects the time on the celing) I could not believe what I was reading. 10:15am. It was a moment that I relished. I think I just laid in bed til about 10:30am.
It is not very often as a mom you get to enjoy sleeping in. It is a simple pleasure that I cherish. Don’t get me wrong, I love my time with my son, but I also love those moments where I can wake up and see that it is way past 6am or 7:30am.
So as I dragged myself out of bed, I realized that my glorious moment was over because the house had to be cleaned!
