Haikus, take 2

This is a repeat. I admit it. I am being lazy today (Okay- I'm not being lazy. Brandon and I have been throwing up all morning, Scarlet was throwing up last night, and Lilly was sick on Monday. I'm just WAITING for Mahone to catch it. I have to get 3 pairs of wings ready for shipping tomorrow and finish a large pair of wings for delivery tomorrow, and cut out about 200 business cards to deliver with said pair of huge wings. I'm not lazy, I'm sick and out of time.) and I was looking into the deep banks of my past posts, and I found this one.
It's from a writer's prompt from back in March, which is something I normally participate in on Thursdays anyway, so I thought it was appropriate. I can't write today, but I still wanted to put something up.
Haikus about my favorite part of the day.

p.s. Dear babies- even though you don't read this, I have to say it: I know I'm cranky right now. I know that sometimes it seems like I tolerate you instead of enjoy you. But I wouldn't trade a single stressed out moment for a lifetime of money, ease, fame, or things. I love you. YOU are my favorite part of EVERY day. (OMG. My hormones are out of control. I'm going to bawl my eyes out writing this.)

breakfast table, cool.
giggles, berries, sugar, prayers.
"Mommy?" "Hmm?" "Love you!"

On the road, buckled.
"Want to hear a story mom?
It is about me."

Little fist on door.
"Mommy! I waked up!" cheeks hot
Grin, with nap time gone.

Still breath on pillows,
Footie jammies keep toes warm.
Finally, my time.

I love your Haikus, the pics, and the sweet and endearing messages you leave for your kids. I too am always apologizing to my kids for being cranky. There's s much to do and not enough time to do it.
