It is definitely different being the mother of older boys now… we are waiting for them to awaken! My husband and I were awake in our bedroom, lying there talking when who should come to the door but only Spooky! No kids!
We are now up, drinking coffee, sitting at the kitchen table awaiting the big moment, all 3 of us, a little dumbfounded, How can the boys sleep on this morning of all mornings? Can’t they feel the excitement in the air? Even Spooky the cat can!
He’s running around, meowing, looking at us, he knows something is up…where the he#$ are those boys? How dare they make us wait? I can’t stand the suspense! Then they’ll want to take showers…aggghhh!
Oh, I just heard some rustling, yay! Uh oh, my big boy is not happy! He had another half hour to sleep and Spooky got him up by meowing outside his door. Good job Spooky! Just saw the younger son, he looks like a monster, wild hair and all, no shower, uh oh, he is about to still wrap something! Oh, how funny! So we’re STILL waiting…
