It’s the weekend. It’s early. It’s 6 am. THE KIDS ARE WIDE AWAKE!!
They want breakfast. Did I mention its 6 am on a weekend?
Here lies the problem. My husband and I work hard, and very long hours at times. We want to “sleep in”- ya know, till 8 am, especially on the weekend.
We are trying out a new method.. one day in, so far, so … okay?!
Every weekend, we are requiring a “quiet time” as our early risers awaken. The rule is, they have to find something quiet to do in the morning until 9 am. Once 9 am rolls around, breakfast will be made.
They stirred, and jumps- off furniture. They giggled, and fought a bit, but they stayed in bed until 7:35 (still winning in my book!)
I woke up, and Marley and I rustled up belgian waffles, with warm syrup.
I cannot wait to see how this goes next weekend, and every weekend to come 🙂
Do you have methods you have instilled for weekend rest? Fun?
