Nash has a relentless inability to sleep past 6 AM on the weekends as well as an inability to be anywhere in the house without someone else within hearing range of his voice. Needless to say, it sucks. So last night I bribed him. I told him if he stayed in his room until 7:30, I would give him $5. After he fell asleep, I put the following note in his room:
At 5:17 AM (not a typo) he came stomping up the steps to our bedroom. I told him we had a deal and to go back down to his room and look for the note I left him. He stomped back down and did not return until 7:43. Bliss!! He was very proud of himself and seemed genuinely excited about the Charlie Brown videos he watched.
I never thought I would see the day where 7:43 was “sleeping in” or that I would have to spend $5 to get it…..
