It's inevitable. Let's face it, in the wee hours of the morning, the kids are GOING to wake up. They are going to ask for cartoons, milk, crackers, and cheerios. When I finally get them all set up with the "morning necessities", the tiny one will wake up. At least she can entertain herself (I put lots of toys in her crib for that very reason.)
So this morning as I lay there, desperately trying to sleep, (pretending that my kids are NOT destroying the house by getting into the bag of oreos and crushing them into teeny tiny pieces and spreading them out all over the couch and bathroom floor)...I decided that we need to have a snooze button on the kids.
"Mommy, the sun is out."
"but I'm going back to bed for 10 more minutes."
