You might be a mother if...

...your bedroom floor is covered with cheerioes, because when the kids woke up at 6:15 am, you thought giving them a bowl of cheerioes and sitting them down on a comforter at the end of the bed and telling them to "be little birdies sitting in your nest and eating birdie food" was a good idea and might buy you fifteen more minutes of sleep.

NOT.

You didn't pay attention to Myers' story...gotta use a box...and if you wanna trade a little more time of sleep for a bit of baby cleaning later in your waking hours, you can throw in a banana with them Cheerios. Granted, I've yet to try this myself, so I can't vouch for it from personal experience, but I'm told it works from a reliable source ;)...Lillian, so far, doesn't ask to eat right after she wakes, so my way to get in a bit more rest (not sleep) when she decides 6:00 a.m. is a great time to start the day, is to lay on the floor of her room with my head resting on the 'ole boppy (hey I'm giving it new life) and every once in a while, opening one eye, maybe two (hence the "not sleep part") to make sure she isn't chewing on a wire or down the hall.
