"What's with today, today?" (Empire Records)
Hatchling woke up at the unheard of hour of 7 a.m. this morning. I know, I know, lots of you moms out there get up at 6 to breastfeed or shower or whatever, but at my house, Mommy doesn't get up before 8 unless there is fire, vomit, or chocolate gravy involved. Seriously.

I got up, gave H a cup of milk, some books, and opened his shades so he could entertain himself. Then, I went back to bed. About 730 he started hollering, so I determined that I was going to have to get up after all. Blasted kid. Do I really want another one? (yes)

As I threw the comforter back and uncurled from my delightfully warm bed, I noticed that the sound of Hatchling's cries were coming closer. That's right. Closer. Do you realize what that means?

He. Climbed. Out. Of. His. Crib.

Uh huh. I met him in the living room, checked to make sure he was intact, and went to tell his daddy the news. The days of caging him are over. If this means that I have to get up before 8 everyday, then someone's going to pay.

Shoot, mine climbed out at 15 months! I could have killed him! So we got one of those super cool, safari looking zip up crib tent. It works amazingly and he actually LOVES it now and begs for it to be closed at bedtime, naptime and if he's not quite ready to get up yet when we go into the room! They carry them at Babies R us... if you were wondering....
Well, good luck!!! (little stinkers...) and yes... you ARE lucky he's normally such a late sleeper!! I'm sleeping in if I can get to 7:15!

ok, I get up before 6 a.m. every morning and I don't have a kid! Well, unless you count the 18 brats I have to deal with for 8 hrs at school every day. And, my hubby gets up that early every morning for work. Where can we sign up for jobs that let us sleep until 7 or 8?! I've always said I'd be a much happier person if I could work from 9-5...Dolly Parton was singing my song.
