Good Morning World

I know it's about noon, but I'm just now crawling out of bed. It's not that I'm lazy, though my mother would say differently, but she's been waking me up at the buttcrack of dawn for the last couple of months now. I can only have so many 6am wake up calls after finally dropping off to bed at 4:30am. I love my mom, really I do, but this is starting to tick me off.

She's been in the process of doing her student teaching, which I am so proud of her for, so she's been going off to school every morning to "hang out" with a classroom full of 2nd graders. I thought her student teaching would be an amazing opportunity and fun for her , but it's working me to death. Every morning the same routine...

She gets up waaaaaay too early for my taste and then, because there are just some things you can't do with nails the length of hers, I get woken up. Now, when I was in school, I learned to ignore the constant yelling of my name... turns out I can't do that anymore. She stands outside my door and yells my name over and over and over again until I answer. Some mornings its "I need you to button my shirt", but this morning it wasn't that.

This morning I had to take out the trash, make my mother's lunch, get some of her clothes out of the laundry, button her shirt, make sure the science project she's doing for her second graders (that really I had to put together) was ready to go, and after all of this she left the house without so much as a thanks. I really starting to think this is going to kill me and that maybe I'm not cut out to be the mother of a child if my mother is driving me crazy like this. I can't wait til her student teaching is over.

Three more days and counting!
