Most mornings, most good mornings anyway, the house is quiet.
Little feet go thump thump thump.
"It's 6 o'clock! The clock says 6!"
Little feet go thump thump thump, closer now.
This morning Jack crawled into bed with us. Hans kept his eyes closed and tried to sleep just a few more minutes. Jack snuggled next to me and we watched the clock numbers change for about 10 minutes.
Then there the bad mornings. 5:15. 5:20. Any time before 6. Jack wakes up and trudges into our room. "Watch Word World NOW!" I never say yes to this, because I know if Jack thinks he can get right up and watch Word World first thing in the morning he will start waking up at 4:30 to do so.
