I know, I know I haven’t really updated, but what can I say??? I get up at 5:30 in the morning now and this is something that has NEVER happened in my life. I mean yes, I have gotten up at 5:30 am for the occasional plane flight, Christmas morning as a child and…… and….. and really those are the only two reasons I can think of that I have ever gotten up that early.

So, needless to say I’m adjusting. I mean let me just tell you 5:30 is in a whole other league from 6 am. In fact it’s nothing like 6 am, you never knew 30 minutes made such a difference, but it does. Luckily Jake gets up at 5:30 too, so I am not alone and I can feed off his energy. The only downside to this is he is a morning person. SO, he’s all poking me and being loud and doing all these things that normal people don’t do at 5:30, but that he does because he’s been getting up at that time for years.

And let me just say, I’m not mean in the morning. I’m really not even grouchy. I don’t even need coffee to be nice. I’m just quiet and I want everyone around me to be quiet too. And for all the people that read this, YOU KNOW I am not quiet at any normal time in the day, but I think there is a certain reverence that 5:30 in the morning deserves.

So, like I said I’m adjusting, but luckily I actually haven’t been tired (besides the first 5 torturous minutes that occur right after I wake up), but after that I have totally been good to go. And let me tell you this is a good thing because the kid’s in my first grade class are definitely ready to go when school starts at 7:40am.

And I already have one child I want to adopt the smallest first grader EVER Jenny Tran , so cute and I want one just like her) too bad she is Asian and this will be fairly difficult to produce from my own loins.
I WILL DEFINITELY try to post pictures from school later this week….

with love!!!
