Too Much Energy!

Our morning started today at 5:30 am.  That actually used to be pretty normal for us, but for the past several months they have all been sleeping until 6:30 or 7, and Jack and Aidan will sometimes sleep even a bit longer.  I very quickly got used to the later sleep time! 

At 5:30 Jack woke up, and Abby was soon to follow, and even Aidan made his appearance not long after.  Once they are awake, there is no turning back, despite how much Mommy attempts to pull the covers over her head and ignore the world for a few more minutes. 

Amazingly, this morning they decided to cooperate and play rather than argue and fight.  So far they have created an obstacle course, jumped on the trampoline, chased a rabbit out of the yard, played a game with very complicated rules that I won't even attempt to reconstruct but which did result in a lot of (happy) noise and a few bangs from the upstairs bedrooms, made a playhouse for their stuffed pets, and now they are in the basement doing who knows what.

Oh, did I mention it is now 7:30 am? 

If only I could harness that energy and use it for good....
