Perspective


Ok today is not wordless. Nevertheless, sometimes a look back just helps. That 5:00 wake up call this morning? Not so bad after browsing through my old pictures for proper perspective.

I originally posted this as a Wordless Wednesday so there you go on the lack of sleep!

Hey, I have that rocker, and it ALWAYS makes me fall asleep!

My first two would fall asleep on me like that...then I could move to lying down...but my third is immune to this power I used to have. Maybe it is better for me.

@Scary Mommy - I was just remembering how painfully tired I was during those first few weeks. Now I feel funny about complaining when I miss an hour here and there.

@MTAE - Perhaps. Does that mean you don't have to put #3 to sleep?

In this photo, Lukas was wide awake and I was the sleeping one.

Yep, it's all in how you look at things! Being a parent gives you a new perspective on everything...especially sleep.

I would so totally drop him there...

James said...

@Momo Fali - Back then I would have killed for the kind of sleep I get now. So I can't complain when I miss an hour here or there.

@Xbox - One would think, but the parental reflexes kick in and it doesn't happen.

Captain Dumbass said...

Ah, those days. Just think, one day you'll be bitching because he's sleeping in til noon.

DC Urban Dad said...

Wake up!!!!!

iVegasFamily said...

I remember those early days too. They were rough.

Dad Stuff said...

I can still sleep sitting up. I do it every week in church.

James said...

@Captain - I will believe that when it happens. LoL.

@DC - In my defense it was probably 3:00 AM and I hadn't slept but a couple of hours a day.

@VegasDad - Those days must not have been long ago for you.

@Dad Stuff - Sound like my Dad. He is a champ at that.

Dude- this was ME this past week! Minus the boppy... although, in retrospect I should of used it!

James said...

@Eric - Embrace the boppy...and anything else that will make your life easier with a brand new one.
