My morning

For those of you with only preschoolers, you might not want to read this post!! Or on the other hand maybe you do, so that you can have hope of what is to come for you some day!!!

This situation that I am going to tell you about, is only possible because of where we live!! Last night my two oldest girls spent the night with some friends. The three younger ones stayed here. Jeff left for work this morning sometime around 4:30 or 5:00. After being awake for a couple of hours when Jeff left, I fell back to sleep and woke back up around 9:00. I came out of my bedroom and it was totally quiet in the house. I kept looking around for the children, but they were not here! I realized as soon as I saw Joel's wet diaper and his PJ's from last night on the floor, that Amy and Daniel had gotten him dressed and took him outside to play!! They did all of it without waking me up!! I am loving having children that are able to do these things!! Not only did I have a leisurely morning getting ready, but today Fall Family Camp started so at 10:00 it was time to go down to the Lodge and eat the brunch that my husband had prepared!! I walked into the Lodge and there were all five of my children excited to see me. Okay three were excited! Life is very good at the Herdklotz home today!
(PS- Amy and Daniel did a great job getting Joel dressed. His clothes actually matched!!)

When I was running this morning I overheard Amy telling Daniel. Let's just let mom sleep she'll be so surprised... or something like that! Sounded good!

I deleted the second comment... It posted the same thing twice for some reason. Just so you don't think it's some stalker or something! :)

Jeff, Judith, Lauren, Emily, Daniel, Amy, and Joel said...

How funny!! I was so excited when I got on this page and realized that I had 3 comments!! I was not expecting all three to be from you! Thanks for sharing what Amy said. They sure did surprise me!!
