Yeah, that's right. It happened again. "Dash"....Was up at an even earlier 5am. Once again I hear him crying. I go in and expect to hear much of the same discussion we had yesterday.

Me: What is wrong sweetie?

Dash: Nothing.

Me: Why are you crying.

Dash: I was sleeping, shhh. (still crying)

Me: I am sorry I will shh. (Dear Husband already gone had to leave house at 4:30am to take friends to airport)

Dash: Just be quiet, I am sleeping.

Me: Do you want to sleep in my bed? (Thinking: he wants to sleep, so we might both get 2 more hours)

Dash: (Runs to my bed, and climbs in) Cover me Mommy.

Me: (Thinking: great we are going to sleep, which is great. I had dreams all night that I was in Chicago taking pictures of the Sears tower, and someone took my purse. I chased these hooligans all night in my dreams)

Dash: Mommy I am not tired, I sure love you.

Me: I love you too. (Thinking...Oh crap here we go again)

Our children must be on the same wave length. Let me know how you fix it. My hubby is also leaving for work at 5am... sigh.

My hubby leaves at 5 am too, but takes the boy with him, we get the tears and the "I want to sleep mom!"

Wow. I would love to tell you this changes, but my sister still does this and she's almost 17. She has full out groggy coversations with you, could look outside and see it's dark and tell you it's 12 in the afternoon.

And she adds sleep walking to this. She's tried to walk out the front door.
