Wake up Call
Is it really December? Yes, Cooper is actually wearing shorts and not the least bit cold! I forced (as several boys complained) the boys to take a nature hike in the unseasonably warm December weather.
Most mornings I awake early, while my boys are still asleep, and squeeze in an early run. Sundays are different. Most Sundays I skip a workout and "sleep in" until the first boy awakes.
This morning, I was sleeping soundly in my bed when I heard the squeak of my bedroom door opening and little feet shuffling along the floor. I opened my eyes and focused on the vision of a boy clutching his trumpet and moving it towards my exposed ear.
It was as if things moved in slow motion. I shouted "NO" right before he let out his first puff.
He, being Caleb, sighed and shot me a disappointed look. Evidently, he thought it would be great fun to wake me (and the rest of the house) up by performing one of his fourth grade masterpieces at full volume..at 7 a.m.
Needless to say, we talked about appropriate wake up calls and how inappropriate wake up calls can give family members quite a fright (and the possibility that they could soil their sheets).
