I should have listened this time I suppose. [wry grin]
It was a short-lived sickness, only an hour or two. Then he took a long nap and was fine by supper time. After all that sleep, he got up at 2:30 this morning ready to start the day. I, on the other hand, was not quite as ready. At 3:45 after several "hi, mommy!"s, I sent him back to his room with a rather lengthy explanation that if he wanted to go in his room and play that was fine with me, but I was still sleeping and he was not to disturb me again. Either he listened or my lengthy explanation put him to sleep - but he did not get up again until 5:30 when his Daddy got up. It's a little bit of an odd feeling to not know what your almost 3 year old did from 4-5:30 in the morning, but, honestly as long as he let me sleep, did not require an ER visit, and did not burn the house down - it works for me!
After much disinfecting yesterday and today, here's hoping the rest of us somehow avoid it!
