The logic of being 4.

J-man is a hoot. I'd almost classify him as my class clown.

Yesterday, we discovered, quite by accident, that the PS1 games we own will play on the PS2. This morning, he got up before 5:30 because he wanted to be FIRST awake.

First awake around here means that you get to pick first for the TV. We allow videos first thing in the morning because the kids start their mornings at 6. I choose not to start my morning until actual daylight can be seen. So that means, 7am, most of the time. This morning, he would not be lured back to blissful sleep.

So we got up and made muffins for breakfast. I wish I could say that I started my day THEN, too. Because we'd be finished with school by now. We ran an errand, looked up some stuff on the internet, talked with the Professor.

Finally school came. He wanted to do numbers first.
He was doing really well counting and identifying numbers.
I congratulated him.

He looked at me and said, "Yeah, when I was a little kid, I couldn't do that."

Tuesday was really hard for us, school-wise. So THAT just melted my heart and made it all worthwhile.

cute. My kids don't like to sleep in either. I can't let them do any electronics in the morning- they would be up at 4 a.m.

My kids watch cartoons in the early morning. They just cant get motivated without it.

And 4 years old is a big kid, mom, dont you know that? LOL

when we were growing up, my youngest brother used to (seriously) dismiss things he'd done the previous day with, "I was a little kid then."
