One Excited Boy

I'm thinking my five-year-old might be a little excited about his first basketball game this morning. Why? Well, ever since Wednesday, he has said to me at least five times a day, 'Mom, remember--wake me up at 7:15 on Saturday for my game.'

But, I didn't realize how very excited he was until he came into my room at 1:30 AM (YES, DID YOU GET THAT? 1:30!!!!!!):

'Mom, I'm ready!' He announced, WIDE AWAKE.

'What are you talking about?' I mumbled.

'I'm ready for my game!'

'Jeremiah, it's 1:30 in the morning!'

'But I'm already dressed and ready to go!' he said (very downcast). (and he was completely ready, from head to toe)

So a sad little boy went back to his room and crawled back in bed, completely dressed and ready to go....

2:30 AM:

'Okay, mom, I'm ready!!!'

'For crying out loud, Jeremiah, it's 2:30 AM. Go back to sleep and do not get up until I come and get you!'

No, I'm not kidding.

And the dad slept through every bit of it.

(btw, I am working on Part 4 of our letter...many interruptions make for a long time coming...hopeful for sometime this weekend!)
