I'm not asking for anything fancy. Perhaps an avacado. A piece of toast would be good. Definitely coffee. C'mon, people, mama just CAN'T run on empty!!
Okay, I get it! If I want to be clean, I have to slink around in the dark of night to do it--in those hours before the house wakes and I have no time to think much less groom. But, for crying out loud, MUST I be the last one to eat around here?

Welcome to mornigs in this house. Every day is a new adventure, and I'm cranky. I don't want to get up at 4am to eat my food, and I'm not a fan of liquid breakfasts on the run.
Mama just wants to eat.
