Kids are crazy!

It was a cold, wintry night. All the homes on the block were dark. The world was asleep.

Or at least the parents thought it was. Until a little baby Colt woke up at 2am to eat and, while he was eating, the parents noticed a light coming from somewhere in the house.

After some investigating, the father returned to report that the little Dragon was proudly just sitting in bed and, when seeing his father, exclaimed, "I stayed in bed, Daddy!"

The father explained that it was not time to be awake and then he turned off the bedroom light and quickly returned to bed just in time to see a light turn back on.

Well, the parents were too tired so they just let the little Dragon keep his bedroom light on and hoped he'd fall asleep soon.

.... Fast Forward Two Hours .....

The father, being a pretty light sleeper, stirs awake at 4am and notices a little Dragon tip-toeing towards him. As soon as the little Dragon sees his father's eyes open he runs as fast as he can back to his bed aad sits there with a big grin on his face as his father walks into the room.

The father turns off the light and strongly implies that the little Dragon's fire truck will go missing if he doesn't stay in bed and try to go to sleep.

Luckily, it works. At least the parents think it works because, at 7:30am the little Dragon is sound asleep in his bed.


I still giggle a little every time I think about Dragon creeping into our room in the middle of the night. Crazy kid. We figure he was probably just playing around in his room for those two hours but he woke up this morning at about his normal time with plenty of energy to spare.

Who knows what got into him in the wee hours of the morning.

I guess he is feeling the excitement of Christmas coming.

Haha. So cute and funny when it is someone else's child.

This reminds me of Teresa's midnight parties. From Ethan's age until she started school every so often she would wake up in the middle of the night and play for hours. Only she wouldn't stay in her room. Bill would lay on the floor of the play room sort of sleeping while she had a party. It seemed like it was always from 2-4am. Ugh.

So anyway...hopefully that's not hereditary.
