Our boys are pretty good at sleeping through the night. They’re usually in bed between 8 – 8:30 PM, and we don’t hear a peep out of them until 7 AM. Jensyn…well, we’re getting there.
Last night, I stayed up late to finish up a good book I was reading. I shut down the Kindle at 1 AM. I should know better than to stay up that late when I have three little ones!
At 2 AM, Jensyn was awake to nurse. Once I went back to bed, I figured I’d be good ‘til 7 AM.
Nope. Alex, who NEVER gets us up in the night, wandered into our room at 3:41 AM. I figured he’d had a bad dream, he didn’t feel well, he was scared…
You know why he woke me up? He stood next to my bed, looked at me, and said, “Mom, can you wake me up when my clock says 7?”
REALLY?! Alex, you get up at 7 AM every day without any help from mommy. Why on EARTH did you need to ask me that in the middle of the night?
I sleepily replied, “Honey, you’re always up when the clock says 7. It’ll be fine. Now go back to bed.”
And he did.
After Alex left the room, Keith started chuckling. I couldn’t help but giggle, too. Of all the reasons to wake your parents…
Kiddo, it’s a GOOD THING you are cute and loveable because waking Mommy at 3:41 AM for THAT isn’t really a good idea. :)
