How could I complain?

We've had a week now with the girls back to sleeping consistently until at least 7 o'clock in the morning. In typical crazy triplet fashion, they chose Monday to sleep in until 8:30, only awakening due to the construction next door. I should mentiont that they still refuse to go to sleep quietly.

Em started fussing and then crying at 5 o'clock this morning. I did what any good mother would do - I sent Rich in with instructions to sleep on their floor. I did fall back asleep after it became apparent that Rich was "sleeping" in there. Turns out, he had been holding Em in the glider chair. She fell back asleep and he managed to place her in her crib but she started crying for Mommy so they showed up bedside ten minutes before six. She snuggled down on the bed with me and fell asleep.

I insisted on taking these pictures. How could I pass up an opportunity such as this? Rich told me to stop because the camera kept beeping. Em slept through it.

So, although I was up early, how could I complain with this little munchkin sleeping next to me? (And yes, that is Lion tucked under her arm.)
