 Sometimes I look over at my husband when he's like, soooooooo happy and pleasant and sunshine-y first thing in the morning cause he just woke up from the best nights sleep ever, and I sort of want to kill him. I think to myself, WHY AM I THE FAVORITE? Why am I the one the kids love to leave their beds for? Why am I the one they wake up to get their drinks at night? Why am I the one they flop on, and roll over? Why do they fall back asleep directly on top of MY head. 
I mean, their dad's head is RIGHT. THERE.

But then again.

I am the favorite. 

And because I'm the favorite, I'm the one who's woken up by Isla. So I'm the one who gets to witness Isla roll over and play with her brother's still-sleeping face. And in turn, watch that brother roll over and put his arms around his sister, and with his eyes still closed, groggily muster out a, "I love you too Isla."

The job has its perks.

Its Hard work being the favorite, Sometimes i feel like the hubby and kids made a deal that they never wake him up and he will always give them what they want HAHAHA. But seeing them happy to see me makes it all worth it!

This is really perfect and 100% true. I read somewhere recently where a woman was literally crying herself to sleep because her child preferred the dad putting her to bed. I was thinking, "this has to be a joke because I would be crying happy tears and either going straight to bed or to a relaxing book if this happened in my world!!"

Alas, it is not. :D You're in good company!

You are beautiful and have such a way with words - putting things so simply yet eloquently. I am not a parent but you make it easy for me to imagine moments like what you describe.

You should do a hair tutorial! I literally try to fix my hair like yours all the time, but I CANT. It's either super curly curling iron unnatural curls or just natural wave lame sauce. Help meeee.

How to get your ex husband back
My name is Jessica Ruiz from Florida I have to give this miraculous testimony, which is so unbelievable until now. I had a problem with my Ex husband 2years ago, which lead to our break up. when he broke up with me, I was not my self again, i felt so empty inside me, my love and financial situation became worst, until a close friend of mine Lucy told me about a spell caster who helped her in the same problem too his name is Dr Shiva at . I email Dr Shiva the spell caster and i told him my problem and i did what he asked of me, to cut the long story short. Before i knew what was happening my husband gave me a call and told me that he was coming back to me in just 2days and was so happy to have him back to me. We have two kids together and we are happy with ourselves. Thanks to Dr Shiva for saving my relationship and for also saving others own too. continue your good work, If you are interested to contact him and testify this blessings like me, the great spell caster email address is you are the best among all the spell caster online I hope you see my testimonies and also pray for my family too
