So I wake up this morning at 6:30 to the sounds of my youngest son calling my oldest son's name.
My first response is to get up quick as I think he is going in my eldest's room and going to wake him up.
Now after assuming this was the scenario I was about to walk in on, imagine my surprise when I walk into my youngest son, naked from the waist down, in the bathroom up on a stool, water everywhere trying to fill his sippy cup in the sink.
Upon closer inspection I think I see some chocolate-like debris on his face. knowing we are usually in the habit of washing their faces before they go to bed, I ask him, "what's on your face?" His response: "chocolate."
Oh jeesh ... I know where this is going. I asked him what chocolate and he points towards the kitchen (we live in a bungalow) and I ask him to show me. Sure enough when we get to the kitchen counter, there is only one advent calender visible.
Turns out he has brought his calender over to the couch, found a chocolate (today's if you can believe it!!!), eaten it and turned on the television.
This kid had been livin' it up for who knows how long on his own this morning before I woke up.
I guess it's time to put a hall gate up (and some night time video cameras).
