Conversation at 5:42 AM

"Mommy?"
"Mmgrrwha?"
"Mommy? Can I watch some TV?"
"Whatimeisit?" (I take a bleary look at the clock). "No. You have to wait until the big hand is on the 12."
"Mommy? Can I snuggle in with you?"
"No, love, you have to go back to your own bed and wait until the big hand is on the 12."
"But I want to snuggle! Or watch TV!"
"Little hand on the 6, big hand on the 12, kiddo. That's the rule."
"Oh alright."

At 7:30 I had to go and wake him up.

Ahhhh...
Something in the aair...
My kid couldn't sleep last night woke up from a nightmare was up until 2:30 am...
Was a afraid that she would sleepwalk as she is prone to do... So was up just waiting for her to sleep...
Then I awoke because the dog hear something at 5 am...
And then I just could not go back to sleep...
And I am having company tonight...
I live the dream!

Oh dear god. So glad AB hasn't yet figured out how to get out of his bed (he did it a few times when we first got the bed, but not since). Of course, I just got him a new step stool tonight from Pier 1 Kids, so I've probably just opened up the door to the pre-dawn awakenings... Ugh.
