Top Ten Reasons I Deserve a Second Pot of Coffee

  1. Papoosekin decided that 5:45 was an appropriate time to get up this morning.
  2. Once up, NOT A SINGLE BINKY could be located in the house, despite the manic searching of two parents. Before 6 am.
  3. Unidentifiable substances are starting to make regular appearances in my daughter's diaper.
  4. Bob the cat is tangled in the blind cords. Again.
  5. I drove all the way to Wal-Mart for a gross of new binkies before remembering that I'm out of cash and have no credit cards at the moment. (That's a whole other post.)
  6. Papoose fell asleep on the way to Wal-Mart the second time, after driving back to retrieve the cash.
  7. Papoose FREAKED OUT when she saw the packages and packages of dozens of binkies at Wal-Mart, but couldn't get through the plastic packaging to ANY of them. At 7 am.
  8. Allowing a toddler to feed Cheerios to the dog to distract her from the two minutes of binky-boiling that must occur is a good way to delay the binky gratification.
  9. I've been shrieked at for apparently reading Brown Bear WRONG, ALL WRONG before the morning nap.
  10. The dark circles under my eyes are proof enough, only I'm not quite exhausted enough to think it's a good idea to post a picture of them.

Oh my goodness, I'm so sorry your morning went like this, but I'm dying with laughter!!!

I'll have to file your morning in my brain as a reminder to always keep an emergency set of binkies somewhere in the house! (Also, the first time I read it, I totally thought you wrote that you were BIKINI shopping at Walmart at 7am. I felt like this was FIRM proof that you had completely lost it)

I think you deserve whip cream in your coffee too! And then a nap... ;)
