I Can Count To Three!

Actually, #2 Son can count to three. He decided to show Mom and Dad he could do this at 3:30am this morning. The boy is an imp. He woke up at 3am, I gave him some water and put him back in his crib. He then proceeded to sit up. The deal in our household is that I tell you something and you get to the count of 3 to do it. Depending on what it is, the consequences vary… but after you understand what is being asked, usually it is a slap on the thigh or rear-end.

Here I am trying to get #2 Son to lay down, he sits up. I tell him to lie dawn and start counting to three and by three he usually lays down. After about 30 minutes of up/down up/down; he sits up and I say one. He says one. I say two. He says two. Now I’m starting to laugh. I barely get three out and he says three. Ok, I am cracking up. No way can I punish him while I’m laughing. So I pick him up and hold him. Then I hear my husband say in a very soft voice “one, two, three”.

Somewhere around 5am I finally get him back to sleep. Needless to say, my Husband got up and went to work and I decided to come write an entry for my blog. Oh, did I mention at 5:30am my #1 Son started calling for me? He is back asleep as well. Both should be up in about 20 minutes… life should be entertaining today.

That sounds exactly like my mornings lately. The bous are 2 and 3. They were both up at 5:52 AM yesterday. For the day. Ethan asked me if he could go to bed at 12:45 (nap time is 1:00 PM). Ethan will count 7,8,9 if Carter counts to 6. It's adorable!

That sounds adorable! I wonder if my sons will do something similar when they are older?
