It occurred to me today that even though I am still tired some mornings, lately my days always seem to start off on the right side of the bed. I can attribute a lot of this to the cute little smile of Wren, but I do know the exact reason why: I am not being woken up by the alarm clock! I have always had a dislike for those things... I could easily work a 12 hour day as long as it doesn't begin with an alarm waking me up. I need to wake up when my body tells me to, not when some loud beep tells me to. This is by far the best bonus of being on maternity leave.
