Six Word Saturday- Come join us!

Come join me at Show My Face for Six Word Saturday.
Here's my entry:

I wish I could sleep in.

In my "pre-kiddie" years, I took full advantage of how great sleep was.  I went out late, woke up early, pulled all-nighters.  It was not a problem.  I knew at SOME point during the week, I would make up for it.  Fast forward 8 years.  Sleep, I miss you.  I just can get enough of you and I AM TRULY SORRY I took advantage of you all these years.

came over here from 6WS; love it! I know what you mean; not sure the age of your kids, but you do get more sleep once they are in that 6-11 year old range unless they are sick or not feeling good, but then you lose it again once they get to be teens and you are waiting for them to come home with curfew. Of course then they will be the ones wanting to sleep until noon. Hoping you can catch an occasional nap here and there!

It does get easier and you do eventually get your mornings back, but it is really tough while they're young.
And a simple woman is right (I know that sentence looks strange)they do eventually want to sleep later than you do. Then is a good time to make a lot of noise in the morning.

Take it from me: Sleep's over-rated. I don't think I've ever slept more that 5 hrs at a stretch in my life.

Some day when those little ones are grown and out of the house you can sleep in again - as I did today. But then you'll be willing to give up the sleep to have them back. :) You just can't win.

Aww, me too! Someday our houses will be empty again though and we'll miss this. Or at least that is what I'm telling myself while I chug coffee.

Found and am following you through Six Word Saturday!

Why oh why when I was in elementary, the old folks would exerts so much efforts to remind me to sleep between 2-4PM. To no avail, I preferred to play and roam around during this unholy hours. Now, I wish I had the luxury of sleep. Sleep, sorry I just took you for granted.

I don't have kids but I have cats. They also don't seem to understand that sometimes I stay up too late or have a rough day. They expect crunchies at the same time every morning.

Thanks for playing 6WS!
