Compare that to your Saturday mornings now:
Wake up to Tiny Baby's whimpering - or is that crying?
Reason with him that, although his body clock tells him it's 6:30 a.m., we nevertheless arbitrarily reset our clocks two weeks ago and therefore he is waking up at an unacceptably early hour.
Breastfeed said baby while watching the last 20 minutes of Thursday night's Project Runway.
Clean Tiny Baby's spit-up off rug in living room.
Clean up coffee spilled while cleaning spit-up.
Shake rattles in general vicinity of Tiny Baby while sipping remaining coffee and checking the headlines on the Times website.
Put Tiny Baby down for his first nap of the day.
Start the day's first load of laundry.
Greet Big Boy as Husband carries him out of his bedroom and to the dining room table.
Persuade Big Boy that leftover Halloween candy is not an acceptable breakfast option.
Talk to him about making good choices while he cries into his yogurt.
Welcome to the new Saturday morning, the new normal. Welcome to life with kids.
Lather. Rinse. Repeat.
