I love my kids and would like to have the ability and freedom to spend every waking moment with them, but lately I have found myself looking at the clock thinking "is it bedtime yet". This past Sunday I verbalized my thoughts to Elle (my 5 year old daughter). At about 2pm we all ended up in our bedroom, I looked at the clock and said "Elle, time for bed". She gave me this look that nearly backed me into the corner. I guess I can't pull the wool over her eyes anymore.
I shouldn't be complaining. We have adjusted the kids bedtimes so that mommy and I can get sometime for ourselves. The kids are usually out cold by 7:30 a big change from 9pm. The only drawback is that they get up early. It's really not a problem during the week because we're up anyway, but on the weekends, C'mon just another our please.
Fact: The greatest single electronic creation is the snooze button.
Question: How many times do you hit it before actually getting out of bed?
