IT’S 3 A.M. AND MY FIRST THOUGHT IS…

It’s 3 a.m., I am 43 years old. I just woke up out of a sweet slumber and my first thought is:

“Tonight
I just want to take you higher
Throw your hands up in the sky
Let’s set this party off right

Players, put yo’ pinky rings up to the moon
Girls, what y’all trying to do?
24 karat magic in the air
Head to toe so player
Uh, look out!”

Yes, I literally woke up to sing Bruno Mars! I cannot be the only one who has music in their head at the most random times. No, I didn’t’ listen to the song before I went to bed or even yesterday. LOL. My subconscious mind wants to party. (I think?) Why fight it? I am having a dance party alone in the middle of the night. I snuck out of bed, played on IG, cleaned my daughter’s fishbowl, got her schoolwork laid out for the day, made homemade pizza dough and dough for a loaf of rosemary bread. Now I am sitting here waiting for my dough to rise wondering WTF is wrong with me, LOL. Is this normal behavior? For me, it is. I realize I accomplish way more in the middle of the night than I do in the daytime. My old night owl ways just won’t go away and let my days be great.

Problem is by 7 a.m. I’m always exhausted and by 7:30 a.m. my daughter will be ready to party. SMH.

Is this mom life? Will I be forever sleepy?
