At roughly 4:30am Kevin starts bouncing around in bed. He does this when he's angry that I'm not getting up with the kids. All I'm thinking is that it's only a little cough and there isn't really much to do at 4am so why bother. However, what Kevin told me was that Joey was ringing a bell he had gotten from his teacher (His class watched The Polar Express on Tuesday). Thank you tinnitus and whooshing! I didn't hear a bit of that nonsense.
Anyway, around 5am I heard him moving toys around in his room and I rolled over and fell back to sleep but again at 5:30 I heard him again and I figured I should go in there to see what was going on. He had just about every 'large' toy he owns on his bed and he was standing next to his bed doing something.
I moved all of the toys to the floor and explained that he needed to go back to sleep. He said, "At least! I'm Santa and I'm working in my workshop on the toys." **Deep breath**
I tell Joey to get into bed and I snuggle in next to him and after about 30 minutes or so of silently laying there he starts stifling a giggle. At this point he can barely talk but he says to me, "Do you know what I am thinking about mommy?" Of course, now that I'm STILL awake and had been awake since 4am! "Sure tell me, Joey."
Anyway, he had watched something Charlie Brown and in the video Charlie Brown had said something about ....I don't even know what but Joey had said a quote from the video that Joey thought was hilarious.
Oh that kid.
