Pearly And White

Micah seriously needs to learn to tell time, and then adhere to a strict "we don't get out of bed until the clock reads..." rule. I'd try Duck Taping him in but I hear CYS really frowns on that kind of stuff. The boy is up at the crack of dawn frequently. Sometimes he's up before dawn even thinks about showing crack, like his 5 o'something kick he's on now.

No, we're not amused.

So he was up at 5:30, poked Daddy to get him to move over and allow him into the Master Bed, lay there thrashing to ensure that each of his parental units were awake with no hope of falling back to sleep for the remainder of the day, and then got up and went on his merry way. His job was done, and done well.

We, however, didn't get up, because even if there was no hope that we would sleep the rest of the day, we can still lay there and dream about it. In my sleep deprived stupor, I heard Micah go to into the kids' bathroom. Then I heard him come into our bathroom. I heard his electric toothbrush, and heard feet pitter patter back to the kids bathroom. Annnnd then I heard the pitter patter back to our bathroom and a toothbrush being laid on the counter.

And as I lay there trying to pretend that our smallest son wasn't on the prowl way too early in the morning, I felt a tap on my shoulder. And another. I cracked an eye open, and saw Micah standing in front of me, proudly pointing to his teeth. I cracked the other eye open long enough to notice that the clock read 6:10 as I weakly said "good job, buddy."

Seriously. The Boy Who Never Brushes His Teeth had the overwhelming desire to do so at 6:10 in the morning. He's weird. Why does he never feel the need to just sleep?

It's good to know that I'm not the only one who thinks her kids are weird and voices it. :)

Micah, Micah, Micah. You can get up that early - just put in your favorite movie and chill. Don't wake the parents!
