Dear residents of The Serious household born in the most recent millennium (say, circa 2006 and 2008).
We love your hugs, kisses and smiles.
We also love that we do not need alarm clocks anymore. Because the 3am, and 5am wake up calls are great.
Think how much money we could save on those silly clocks and the electricity to power them. I think I will head over to craigslist right now and try to get rid of them.
And really, dearest #1, it is perfectly acceptable to wake up at 5am, and bang on your door shouting “mommy” and “daddy.” We love that. We also think it is just swell that you take your diaper off for us, too, before we get to you. Look at that extra time you saved us. You are just so dang considerate.
And, my little chunk-a-munk (aka #2), 3am is a great time to start squealing for your pacifier every 5 minutes. Actually, you know what, I think it’s even better when I go into your room, give it to you, and by the time I’ve made it to the threshold, you’ve already spit it out and are squealing with delight (again). And when we finally have had enough of the paci game and decide it’s acceptable for you to cry it out, we just love that you seriously cry for over an hour. Love it.
So, thank you beautiful children for saving us money and time. We really enjoy waking up super early just to fancy you.
We love you!
Mommy and Daddy
