Give Me A Break!!

The above phrase is what my almost-four-year-old daughter chooses to say to me on a daily basis, multiple times a day. A break from WHAT? From pre-school and coloring and kiddie pools and hopscotch and the cartoon network? From library trips and computer games and painting and playing with her baby sister? Yes folks, I am the one who desperately needs a break. I tried to get up at 6 am this morning to do some yoga but even that wasn't early enough to beat my girls to the punch. Ava heard my alarm and promply started shrieking (although adorably so) for attention. Juli has been staying up until 9pm this summer and since I usually pass out at around 10:30 after watching the Daily Show that gives me exactly an hour and a half a day to myself. I really want to try to start a yoga routine in the mornings but it looks like I will have to either get up at 5 in the morning or put my alarm clock under my pillow so she-of-the-ultra-heightened-canine-hearing-sense can't hear it and thwart me again. I still do Pilates every day but yoga takes a certain amount of concentration that cannot be achieved with the sounds of Blue's Clues in the background or "Mommy can I have this/do this/eat this/watch this" every thirty seconds. I also need a vacation. I don't care if it's only for one day. Just twenty-four hours of freedom, peace, and quiet. And margaritas. Or possibly martinis. I don't really care.
