I’m not a morning person. I think we all know that. It’s just not pretty to wake me up too early. However, I have three little boys that repeatedly wake up much earlier that I would like. Normally I can get them a snack or a cup of milk, turn on the computer or a movie, and I can go back to sleep for a good hour with no problems. Aiden is at the age where he takes care of himself, and I like it that way.
This morning was a typical morning. I was sound asleep, Ches had gone in to the school before anyone else woke up to get some work done, and Aiden and Dallin woke up and started to play. I thought I could hear Star Wars talk, so I assumed they were playing Lego Star Wars or one of the many computer games they found websites for. The sun was shining, and I could hear some landscapers outside that the HOA hired to trim trees and such. Aiden and Dallin are having a lot of fun and their voices are getting louder and louder. It’s annoying, but I’m too tired to get up and tell them to be quiet.
After a while, I realize that Aiden and Dallin aren’t on the computer. I don’t hear the TV. They are still talking, and I hear them yelling things about our vacation and I can hear voices talking back to them. Now suddenly wide awake, I get up and find the two boys at one of the upstairs windows, talking to the landscapers. It wouldn’t be too big of a deal, except for what Aiden was telling them. And by telling, I mean shouting. For the entire neighborhood to hear.
Aiden told them we are going on vacation, exactly where we are going on vacation, what we are going to do on vacation, and the day we leave for vacation.
I was livid! These men seem nice enough to talk to my boys while they are working (they talked about trees and Star Wars and such, too), but they are strangers and who’s to say one of them isn’t going to come back and see what stuff we have in our house while we’re gone? Or anyone out for a walk? Now I’m going to be worried the entire time we’re gone. If Aiden wasn’t so young, I’d be tempted to leave him home from vacation and let him deal with any intruders!!! ARGH!
These kids will be the death of me.
