It doesn't seem to matter how tired he is or how tightly I tuck him in - by morning my 7 year old often ends up hanging out of bed like this.
He's my restless sleeper and my night owl. And he has a habit of quietly rearranging his room after lights out - so I'm never quite sure what I'm going to find when I check on him. My little darling is going through a stage of setting traps, after watching Home Alone (again). This usually involves his paperweight collection, books piled up by the door and loads of string wrapped around the handle....
I wouldn't have a chance of taking a photo of the other two sleeping in the morning unless I set my alarm. They are my larks. Always up bright and early, no matter what time they go to bed. These two take after their dad, who is cheerful and coherent from the minute he wakes up.
I am not.
I am not cheerful
and I do NOT want to have a conversation about whether we should put lawn feed on the grass, as soon as I open my eyes.
But he's not here at the moment and I'm on autopilot with the kids in the morning until I get them on the school bus.
By the time I'm ready for a chat, everyone's gone....
This week's Gallery theme is Morning.
