Michael is up at 5:30 and out the door by 6:20. I don't see him in the morning. He once told me that his co-worker's wife gets up and makes his co-worker breakfast every single day. I patted his back and said, "that's nice".
My alarm goes off at 6:45. I need to be out of bed by 7:00 for the morning to go well and to be out the door by 8:00. It's hard to do.
This is why:
We're a sleeping in kind of family. Left to our natural state without work, school and alarm clocks I think all 4 of us would naturally rise between 8:30 and 9:00.
By the way, I was between them until I dragged my body out of bed at 7:15. Then Spencer rolled over and took my spot. When I took this picture I was seriously considering calling work and cancelling my day, rearranging Spencer's school schedule for the week and then crawling back in.
I didn't. I woke them up, we went to work and school and then at 2:00 we all went back to these exact positions for a glorious afternoon nap.
