Remember weekend mornings before kids? Sleeping until 9 a.m… drinking hot coffee… mimosas at brunch… Or, remember when you didn’t know that 4:45 a.m. was an actual time to be awake? Ah, so many fun things our kids have taught us.
Like how it feels to be woken up mid-lightsaber battle before the sun rises. And you didn’t even know you were battling. Or the joy of completing an entire game of CandyLand by 7:30 a.m. So. Fricking. Fun.
Well, here are some fellow parents in the trenches of exhaustion, missing their Saturday mornings just as much as you do.

Me: *Friday night* I’m so glad it’s the weekend. Maybe I can finally get some rest.
2yo: *Saturday at 6am* *screeches like a velociraptor*

In a last minute effort to get my boys to sleep past 6am, I told them the 1st one up cleans the toy room.
They’ve never slept this long.

If it’s 7 AM on a weekend and you are wishing you were at work, congratulations on having kids.

By 7 a.m. on Saturday I’ve already been the chef, the maid, and the referee between two kids playing with an empty solo cup.

It’s only 8:30 AM, and I’ve already put in a full day.

We’re going on vacation which really just means we are going to a different location where the kids will still get up too early & fight.

“Mom… wake up… my spoon fell into the toilet. There’s pee in there, too.”
What my Saturday morning alarm clock sounds like, apparently.

Parents: Let’s wake up earlier so we don’t have to rush or get there late.

Have kids so you can wake up to a sweet little voice calling out “catch!” followed by a football to the face. pic.twitter.com/dLxOPhlMba

My kids wake up an hour early for every 15 minutes I let them stay up past their bedtime because….science.

My morning alarm is just kids screaming you’re a butthead! at 6:30 a.m.
And there’s no snooze button. I looked.

Now go to bed. Your kid is going to wake you up in like 3 hours asking to have candy for breakfast and complaining that his sister stole the iPad. Get your zzzzzs while you can!
