"It's Sunny!"

When Jack gets up... at the crack of dawn... he yells for one person. Mommy. It's a sing-songy "Mommy" at first, but if I don't respond quickly enough the call becomes much more urgent in nature. Quick bursts of "Mommy, Mommy, Mommy." Typically it's right around 6:15 (the kid has a decent internal clock) but every once in a while the call comes before 6 which is just brutal.

Here's the thing - it's impossible to get mad at him for the early call because as soon as I go in... he points to the window and says, "it's sunny!" The rule is he's only allowed to get up when it's sunny (as opposed to pitch black outside). Even when it's raining in the morning - Jack still proclaims "it's sunny" when I walk in.

Now here's the interesting thing. When I went away with Jill on Saturday night (to the Mystic Marriott and Spa!) I was chuckling to myself that Stephen was going to have to get up early with Jack. Stephen is NOT a morning person... so when Jack woke up around 6:15 on Sunday morning he yelled for Daddy (smart kid!)... but Stephen yelled back that it wasn't sunny yet... and the kid went back to bed for an hour. What? This is so unfair.
