I was pretending to be asleep this morning when David got up at 4:30am.
He comes over, taps me on the shoulder… “Dad, what time do I have to be up for school…?”
I told him “6:30” so he went back to bed. just as easy as could be. this never happens. 🙂
No, I am not naive enough to think that he is suddenly going to stop roaming the house and stealing things in the wee hours of the night.
All the same though, it was pretty neat.
Why was I pretending to be asleep instead of actually sleeping? David gets up and frequently gets into things that aren’t his. So I was hoping to observe him returning to his bed with whatever device he stole from his siblings. It is easier and far less time consuming to catch him in the act than it is to convince him to return what ever he is denying the theft of.
