Silly Girls

I heard Savannah wake up and start screaming "Mommy, Mommy, Mommy" at 5:30. So being the caring mother that I am, I went into her room thinking that I would calm her down, rock her and sleep on the floor. I calmed her down and got her back in her bed and laid on the floor. She laid in her bed and said "RY, Ry, Ry".
Ryanne "Mom, why don't I ever get any sleep?"
Me " Shh, go back to sleep, it is still nighttime."
Ryanne "P-O-P, spells horse"
Savannah "Hose"
Ry "H-H-H-H- Horse"
Ry "Knock, Knock"
Sav "Whose der"
Ry" bottlehead"
giggling and more knock knock jokes
Sav "my turn, my turn, my turn" (I am not sure why she says everything in threes)
Ry "Twinkle, Twinkle, little horse, what are you doing?"
etc. etc, etc
You get the picture. When I realized that I wasn't going to be able to get any sleep and that they weren't going to be quiet, I looked at the clock, saw that it was 6:45 and realized it was time to start packing lunches.
I will leave it at that!
(The time setting on this blog is wacky, it is really 7:15 am)
UPDATE- Ry and Savannah actually fell back asleep as soon as I left their room and slept until after 8, so we only had one zombie- ME! (I got a nap later though :)

seriously funny, oh man. I can't stop laughing. Ryanne and Savannah are super funny. The only reason I can laugh is because they are not waking me up and I am not there mom. So, sorry if it is frustrating you Mare, but just remember how cute they are and you are lucky to have them.

Gotta love it when they wake up bright-eyed and bushy-tailed in the middle of the night (practically).

If it makes you feel any better, I was up at 4:50 to nurse Rachel before I had to get up and get ready for a temple recommend interview at 6:15 AM at the stake center half an hour away. Wow, that was an early start! I'm glad I don't have to do that again for two more years.
