Time Flys When You're Sleepy

This weekend I got to play "mom" again --- it's always a treat and I really enjoyed it --- I hope the boys did too. The only down side is I have to play "mom" all the time not just when I "want" to...........take for instance Saturday Morning .... my only morning to sleep in .. I knew being "mom" for a weekend I couldn't stay in bed till 10:00am ,,but when the little angel came in and said "is it time to get up?" and I looked at my clock and it read 6:45AM I hoped he was kidding....
I nicely said it's wasn't time and when the clock read 8 0 0 it was time to get up.........I forget children are creative so when the little angel came in again and said that their clock read 8 0 0
I couldn't really be mad-- he was showing how to get around things..........so I told him my clock didn't say 8 0 0 so go back to bed for awhile.............. I waited 5 minutes then went in and
and told them it was time to get up ..........it was 7 0 5............Yeah!!!!!! They were thrilled ... but for some reason their two older brothers weren't--- can't figure that one out :-).......... So by 7:15 I was making breakfast --- That's one for the record books!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Not only up but cooking!!!
And they say miracles don't happen!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

In a few weeks I get the girls --- maybe they understand the meaning of beauty sleep!!!!!!

Thanks for the good help, Karen. Of course, the boys had a blast. I love the little clock story, too. Priceless!

Oh! That sounds lovely! I totally hear you with the sleep thing. I pulled a new one and slept till 11am this Saturday. :P I guess it comes of staying up late and always feeling sleepy.

I wish I could have been there and I'm glad you had such a nice time with the Stuckwisch little ones.

Can't wait to see you again.

It is worse when they wake up at six and sit on your head bouncing up and down singing "wake up wake up"
