Roosters and Sirens

I’ve barely finished my coffee. The big ol’ cup I drink from each morning has a picture of Grumpy the dwarf and says I hate mornings!

I close my Bible after reading Psalm 102. The heading said A Cry for Help.

Yes Lord, I need that.

And it hits me, in verse 18 king David is praying for me, he’s praying for you. Incredible.

That’s when the siren’s start.

“Wee-ooo, weee-oooo!” And sock clad feet come tumbling down the stairs.

Excuse me while I kiss a freckled face little man, er’ I mean fireman.

And following shortly after him I hear the clomp of dress shoes and she emerges, a pair of pretty shoes, swishy workout pants and a pajama shirt. Her hair tousled, several unruly curls standing up on end and a mat of fuzz in the back where she lay on her pillow.

Oops, I delayed and now she’s streaking through the living room and the baby knows he’s been left, clinging to the rail of his crib.

And the questions begin and the barage of random conversation. He is the reason I need to start the coffee early.

“Mom, I know what will happen if you break a chord.” He stares into my tired eyes with wonder. “It will like, lightning your hand or something.”

I raise my eyebrows and wonder where he’s going with this.

“Speaking of. Can I have a peanut butter rice cake?”

Ah ha!

That’s my cue.

She is back upstairs trying on something new, crowing like a rooster, then singing a “Got It” song.

This is my real.

This is my glorious life.

Joyfully participating in Five Minute Friday at The Gypsy Mama!

  1. This sounds like a fun morning! I’m laughing with you….because that’s how we get through it sometimes, right? I so wish I could be in your life just one day–your real is awesome and your freckle-faced sounds like a character. I love his randomness. I give up at following along (with what they are saying) just as long as I can stay current. And that means the very last thing said, right!

    1. Amen to that Christy, and yet I find staying current even difficult. He is GOING from the minute he wakes till AFTER bed. LOL

  2. Hello,

    Stopping by from Lisa Jo’s and I LOVE your real description! This was just delightful! I hope those kids have a full day of loving on you and fall to sleep quickly so that you can, too.

    Thank you for sharing!

    1. Ah thanks! I need that. :) Glad you came here today.

  3. Hee, hee! I KNOW exactly what you mean! My five do the same thing. It’s messy, chaotic, glorious…

    1. :) Cool that you’ve got five as well. What are their ages again and girls or boys?

      1. Girl (Maggie) – 11
        Boy (Sam) – 7 on Monday
        Girl (Olivia) – 5
        Boy (Judah) – 3
        Boy (Jack) – 14 mos.
        Girl (Mama) – don’t even ask.
        Boy (Daddy) – 4 years older than Mama’s ‘don’t even ask’.
        I think that’s all of us, but I may have missed someone in there.

        1. LOL! I love it and we both have a Judah!! :) Is yours the family clown too? Mine are currently 10, 8, 5, 3 (the only girl), 14mo. So I just started a year later than you!

          1. That’s flippin’ awesome! Our kids match up so well! My mother thought I was naming him “Judas” and freaked out. He’s a clown, but more in the performing way. God has given Him a passion for performing and all I can pray is “Father, help me.” Everyday. Overandover.

          2. MINE TOOOOO!!!! Were we separated at birth? lol! I think our Judah’s are clones too. Mine is highly personable, can captivate a room full of adults who “don’t like kids” but oh boy is he intense and controlling. Yes, I pray those prayers too! Have you hooked up at the MOB Society blog for the 21 days of prayers for sons? It’s only day 5! I’m doing it, or at least trying. :)
