Last night was not a good sleeping night for Wil. He is typically up once or twice during the night but last night he was up multiple times. I’m not sure if it was the excitement of Halloween the night before(he didn’t eat much candy) or if it was just one of those nights. I was feeling groggy when my alarm went off at 4AM. I shuffled into the kitchen, my head down, and ground some coffee. In Wil’s light sleeping state, the grinder woke him up and he opened his bedroom door. Upon seeing the light on in the kitchen, with great enthusiasm Wil said, “Oh, good! It’s morning!”
I had to laugh, as he didn’t have any more sleep than I did. I settled him back into bed, and thanked him for his reminder.
My day is already brighter than it started just a short time ago. My head is now up. My shuffle is gone. How could it not be when “Oh, good! It’s morning!”
