Perky mamas! Or the somber type?

My feelings toward perky moms... Well, it depends.

If you're perky ALL the time, I feel suspicious. That's just unnatural. I would wonder about your mental health and illicit drug use, lol.

If you're perky in the mornings... Also a little suspicious, while being a bit jealous. I am not a morning person if I have to deal with other human beings. If I'm alone and waking up to work on a project myself, I'm fine. Otherwise, I'm a grouch and I know it. I don't mean to be, but it takes time for me to adjust to reality in the morning. I probably want to know what kind of coffee you're drinking and your average bed time. I donno, I guess I kind of AM a morning person... I'm often up until dawn. I'm not sure that counts though.

If you're perky at all, unless your kid is older or doing something downright adorable.... I'm kind of amazed. It must take a certain kind of super power to put all the energy in a kid and still have energy for perkiness, you're some kind of superhero.

I get a little cranky when I'm balancing too many work projects or life events, and those aren't living beings depending on me (though sometimes it feels like it) If you can maintain your perk through being wholly relied upon... Wow. Kudos to you. You're officially an amazing multitasker, optimist, and mama. Your kids are lucky to have you.

If you're perky on rare random occasion, then that's cool... I'm probably curious about what cool thing is going on in your life.

Maybe it makes me weird, but I'm usually a little concerned about particularly perky people. I'm not saying there isn't a lot of beauty, joy, and happiness in life, but... I donno. There's something about perk and pep and whatnot on a consistent basis that seems foreign to me. I always feel like perky people are up to something and I always want to know what it is HAHA. And I realize I sound pretty darn paranoid right now, but it's not as bad as it sounds. It's probably the same way particularly perky people feel about people like me if I had a guess, lol.

Are you a perky mama?
Are there moms out there who also get curious about those of us who are peppy?
Do you perky peeps feel weird about the more stoic and somber of us sometimes, be honest?

    Yes, I am perky but I also get tired and stressed just like any other mother. I am not perky creep like those women from the movie "The Stepford Wives." Lol..that is just too freaky. I am, however, a morning person. Although, I have been getting up later, around 7 am, due to late nights. Before and during pregnancy, I would be in bed about 8:30-9:00 pm. Now it is 9:30-11:00 pm, depending on whether my son decides he wants to go to bed.

        Honestly.. I am a perky peppy person in general.. but this doesn't mean I don't have bad days, off days, grumpy days, etc.. I've always been bubbly and chatty and generally happy.. I alway think in the back of my head that people have the choice to be happy or not happy about everything and I feel like life is so much more fun by choosing happy when I can.. that probably all sounds way too perky and peppy haha But honestly, it's just me!

          I am not a perky person. I do not like mornings, although I am up very early everyday due to work.
          I don't think anyone can be happy all the time...its just not natural. There are always life events and just days in general where it feels nothing goes right.
          Perky sometimes....sure. Everyone, I would hope anyway , would have some days that are pretty awesome and well deserved. Go perky!
