Last night was a late night for us, so we all slept in this morning. I slept in until 8:20, which is I can't believe! Yippee!!! When I woke up, I heard no noise coming from Sam's room and "play noise" coming from Timothy's. Very nice. At 8:39, Timothy came out and said, "Mom, I've played and played, and the number never shows SEVEN!!!!!!!!!!!" (Do you feel the angst?)
Oh, it made me laugh so hard! He also slept in later than he usually does, so by the time he woke up his clock had an 8 in the front. We have a rule that he doesn't get out of his room "until it says 7" because the days that he wakes up at 6:30am mommy still needs alone time before I start the day.
I never thought he would ever sleep until 8, and I would have to be specific enough to say "7 or HIGHER". But I have now, and so we got a mini-lesson/review in what higher and lower is. But I'm so glad he didn't know before today! The fact that he thought he needed to stay and play allowed me to sleep until 8:20 and still get 20 minutes of me time!!! And my son really worked hard to obey the rules. It's a good way to start the day!
