Crabby Mommy Omelette

It was raining again this morning, and fog with the cold temperature were all seducing me back to slumber land. It would have been nice to sleep til noon, I thought. But no matter how many times I hit the snooze button, the alarm kept shocking me back into reality... Then I remembered that I don't have the luxury of sleeping in these days when I heard my kids woke up from their sleep. The next thing I know, they were climbing up my bed, jumping on me, laughing, smothering me and giggling as they try to tickle me with their little hands. One of my kids must have spotted the tired look on my face when she asked why her mommy was so crabby. I was surprised and happy that she had learned that word and thought about it (like where did she learn that) all the while I was ushering them to the kitchen and preparing them breakfast. That's when I thought this omelette would be the order of the day. And it did put me in a brighter, cheerier perspective. Because by the time I finished making the omelette, the rain had stopped, the wind had calmed down, and the sun had popped out to play. Oh Happy Day!

Crabby Mommy Omelette
