Weekend Mom

  When you become a parent, your days of sleeping in are over.  Throw training for a marathon on top of it and you are for sure done. period. game over.

All in all...getting to be a parent and crossing the finish line after 26.2 miles and it is worth it.

Wes is a very cuddly kid! I love it!

On the morning that I don't train with the team, I am on morning duty. Usually between 7-7:30am...I hear Wes come padding into our room. Typically, he wiggles is way in next to me and immediately starts whispering random rantings typical of a 4 year old; dinosaurs, buzz lightyear, friends at pre-school etc. Sometimes, I wake up ready to take on our weekend, other days not so much.

On the days of "not so much"...I hand Wes my iphone for him to play
with to buy me a few minutes. Wes loves to look through my pictures and describe each one in great detail while I try to catch a couple more Zzzzz's.  Never happens, but I never quit trying. Wes also enjoys taking pictures. The picture of me was taken by Wes at 7am on a Sunday. I returned the favor and took his picture as well.

We still discuss these pictures every time he pulls them up on my phone.

Wake me at 7am on a Sunday and take my picture, I won't be smiling.

Pepe...the smile is for the kid...very forced but for the kid nonetheless
