A Peek Into the Life of a Working Mom: Why I Love Saturday Morning

True confessions, I have not been faithful to getting up at 5:30AM. Doing that was a really tough grind, especially since I usually go to bed at 11 or 12. Still, I think that my thoughts about rising early have influenced my sleeping patterns.

Since the toddler used all of the data allocated for my iPad I haven't been able to use the Internet thought that either. I have yet to do my taxes and haven't been able to start them since we've had not connection. And trying to keep up with my social media connections via my cell phone has been disappointing.

She studies it like an she's an engineer trying to figure out how it works. It's kind of funny actually.  She has three "baby cell phones", but she has little interest in them.  Somehow she seems to know that they're fake and she likes the real one.  I never let her play with it for long, but it can usually buy me 5-10 minutes of free time to do my makeup.
