The Problem is the Solution
Harry's energetic nature also affects his sleep. As in he doesn't need as much as I would like. Again, this will be great as an adult, but now? He's not off the scale; he gets 10 hours per night before waking. But most of his peers get around 11, and some 12. I obsess about how much extra adult time that would give us in the evenings. But actually, it's the solution for how to fit everything in.
So the little cherub usually wakes around 5:30. He is then supposed to stay quiet in his room until 6. This means that on a day like today, I get up, get boys dressed and breakfasted, and am out of the house in time to get to the gym by 7. There is NO WAY I would be doing that without my trusty copper-topped alarm clock. Now it's 8, I'm blogging and having breakfast, and I will do the blasted meditation all before teaching at 9.
Thank you Harry, you have turned me into a morning person.
