early to bed and early to rise

The little man is an early riser. It should be good news to me since if he keeps this up until he is school age then it means I won't have to drag him out of bed to get ready, right? But he is not of school age yet and when he wakes up early, most of the time he wakes me up early too. To fix him milk. He used to just lie down beside me and wait for me to wake up but not anymore. He knows that if he taps mommy in the shoulder she wakes up. If that does not work then rub his face on mine. If that still does not work then punch her on the arms. That should start her day right. I am not a morning person. One of the things I like so much being a stay at home mom is that I don't have to get up early to get ready for work. Call me lazy but that is the truth. Also, I can stay up late at night to do whatever while the little man is asleep. The problem comes when I had a late night and then the little man wakes me up early for his routine. When I don't get enough sleep I get dark under eye circles which makes me look awful. I must tell you I don't crawl back to bed after I leave it in the mornings unless I am sick. I don't even take naps. That is why I don't like waking up early. But since the little man has this morning routine I have to. It is a pain but he is my responsibility after all. I would rather wake up and fix his milk unless I want to clean up a lot of mess in the kitchen. I had to wake up early today (again) and I just want to vent it here :)
