Good Morning?

This morning our phone had a freak ring at 3:00am. It woke me up and I was a little annoyed. Then I had a hard time going back to sleep, and as I was laying there I noticed the room was brighter than usual. The hall light was on and was illuminating the outline of our closed door. I decided one of the girls must have gotten up to use the bathroom and forgot to turn off the light. I didn't want to get up to turn it off, so I tried to just go back to sleep.

As I continued to lay there, I started to hear a sound fading into the room like people talking. Was the TV on too? RRRR! Now I HAD to get up - and what was the TV doing on? I threw back my covers in a huff and got out of bed, walked down the hall, and saw that all the lights were on in the family room and kitchen. I also saw that Lo and Behold Athena was sitting there, watching TV, fully dressed for school, with a towel on her head! I asked her what she was doing because it was the middle of the night! She said her alarm had gone off, so she got up, got her shower, got dressed, and was watching TV until we woke up. She also said she wondered why Dad hadn't gone to work yet! I brushed out her wet hair, sent her back to bed, and went back to bed myself.

What a responsible girl. I wonder if she thought the ringing phone was her alarm. That's funny!

Sounds like you might need to check her alarm clock!

I hope she wasn't too tired today!

That's very cute, and responsible. Good for Athena!

Talk about self-reliant! Good job Athena. I bet you'll make sure your alarm is set for the right time from now on.

Makes me wonder how long she'd be watching TV and waiting for everyone else to get up if you hadn't been up at the same time!
Nothing to scare you like the early a.m. phone calls either.

NO way! That is so funny. I can't believe that she totally got herself ready. Your kids are totally on it. I need to send mine over so you can train them.

I've had experiences like that on daylight savings time before. Maybe not that early...
Hey, I am actually really interested in the step aerobics class you teach. I took aerobics at BYU and did a little bit of step... I'm not the most coordinated person in the world, so it might be a little embarrassing for awhile. :) Anyway, I'd love more info on where it is, when you meet, etc. Maybe I could talk to you on Sunday. Thanks!

I would LOVE to have you come! Definitely find me on Sunday and I'll give you the details!! I lost all my baby weight by attending these classes. :)
