If this happens it is never on weekends. NEVER!
We don’t need to set the alarm clock in our home. We can almost always count on the boys to wake us up at the same time every single day. The only few times when they happened to sleep in were never on weekends. I sometimes dream of the lazy pre-kid weekends with no whining kiddo to pull the bed sheets off me while asking me to come downstairs to make breakfast.
Waking up earlier than the usual time is very rare. It actually only happened once. And this was a few days ago. It was field trip day and my oldest was super excited to visit an apple orchard with his friends at school.

His field trip gave me and his little brother the opportunity to spend some time together, just the two of us. We played for a bit, read some books, listened to a Curious George story and I also managed to squeeze in these healthy ghost treats. It only took me a few minutes to put them together.
