Is there sleep in my house?
I don't think so! Maddie has always been a good sleeper, but an early riser. She finally got up on her own yesterday, went downstairs, got her milk and turned on the tv all by herself. Pretty impressive except for the fact that it was all before 5am. She then decided it was taking too long for me to get up so about 5:30 she came back upstairs to see what was taking me so long. Ummm...sleep is what is taking me too long. I went downstairs, scoped out her situation and was able to get back upstairs to sleep for about another 45 minutes. This morning consisted of healthy whole wheat oatmeal blueberry muffins (will freeze these for a quick grab and go breakfast during the week). After these were done, we made buttermilk oatmeal pancakes with poached eggs. Maddie of course ate like a champ having a muffin, a pancake and an egg. She's now jumping off the walls with energy. I'm just waiting for my breakfast to digest so I can get my long run in today. My aim today is at least 6 miles and would love it if I feel good enough to get about 7-8 miles. We'll see. It's still quite chilly outside so my run will have to wait a bit longer.
