Our little co-conspirators!

I’m becoming more and more convinced that our three year old and six month old are conspiring somehow.

Not sure if they have a secret language or if they are doing it telepathically, but I do know what they are talking about.

If I may…

Danny: “Hey there Benji. I was up at 5:15 this morning so why don’t you take tomorrow?”

Benji: “No problem bro. Should I do the quiet chatter first or just go for the loud wail?

Danny: “Oh definitely the wail. Isn’t it hilarious when Mommy jumps up?”

Benji: “Sure is big brother. Oh hey, I've been meaning to tell you how much I admire that crying out in the middle of the night thing you do. You know, the one where you scream and then fall right back to sleep? Love how she jumps up, and stands there frozen like a statue waiting to see if you'll do it again. And the best part is that she can't get back to sleep for a while.”

Danny: “Yeah. That’s funny! Mama doesn’t jump up but I know we wake her up too! Hey, let’s mix things up a bit. We’ve been taking turns getting up at 5:15 for months now. What do you say we shoot for 5 a.m. from now on?

Benji: “I’m on it Danny!”

Not that I’m tired or anything. ;-]

I hear ya sister. There is no sleep on this side of the planet either. Amy B told me, "The days are long but the years are fast." Maybe that will apply to the nights too....
