You never realize how noisy your morning routine is until someone sleeps over. Elise stayed the night with me since their power went out, so of course I want to let her sleep in. Ha! At 6:00 she heard the cuckoo bird, and through her monitor I hear her own little "cuckoo". Then she's quiet for another 20 minutes or so.
I decide to make some muffins for a nice little breakfast, and as I pre-heat the oven, it dings. I carefully reach for a measuring cup (they're the metal ones of course, not soft plastic), one falls to the floor. Loudly. The doors creak each time I open them. Funny how you don't notice some of these sounds on a daily basis.
Then the oven dings three times to tell me the desired temperature has been reached.
By now she's babbling, her normal little wake-up routine. I'll go ahead and get her up. I'm glad she's an early morning riser like her Grams. ;)
Have a good day, all.
