A Small Luxury
I'm usually up between 6:00 and 6:30 either to get ready for work or because Winston gets me up - he's almost always awake by 6:45. He'll come right in and say, "Wake up Mom, it's morning. Time to get up. Mom, wake up!" He won't stop until I drag myself out of bed. Some days his wake up routine feels like torture - I never do get to bed at a decent hour and mornings always come way too early for my liking. I'm not really a "morning" person.
Today when Winston came in to wake me up, Brad - most benevolently I might add - got up and somehow talked Winston into letting me gets some more sleep - this never happens. Usually he just persists in trying to get me up and out of bed. I had work off today for President's Day so I was more than happy to take advantage of this unexpected event. I rolled over to the middle of the bed and burrowed back under the covers and promptly went back to sleep. I actually slept in until about 8:45! I can't remember the last time I slept this late.
What a luxury to be able to sleep until my own body clock says it's time to wake up. Brad is the best husband/daddy! Thank you for your thoughtfulness and for entertaining our little guy so I could get some much needed rest.
