Last night I was talking to my friend Stacey about kids and Saturday mornings. Why are they so hard to drag out of bed during the week, but they wake up an hour earlier than normal on the weekends?? Henry used to be really bad about getting out of bed. He would wake up at 5am and climb into my bed saying, "Mommy, the sun is up." I would roll over to Ken and whisper, "The son is up..." We still joke about it occasionally but Henry has gotten a lot better. Especially because of the night light we got him for his birthday.
I knew they would be tired this morning because of school this past week and I was hoping for them to really sleep in. Right after 7:00 (when the alarm is set for) I woke up on my own, and was planning on laying in bed for a little while until I heard, "Sissy! Isssss geeeeeen! Bubby! Isssss geeeeeen!!" Apparently Benjamin understands the lighting system and was trying to wake his brother and sister. I got him out of bed and he said, "I wan watch teebee." It's like a whole flashback to exactly how Henry used to wake up!!
But at least Frances and Henry got an extra half hour of sleep.
