My day looked like this. Around 7am I woke up to my big kid's nose pressed up against my face. She wanted to know if it was time to get up yet. I thought this was a particularly cruel joke, given that I had to drag her out of bed at 8-something every school day this week, and now that it was the weekend here she was awake before the sun, and on a day when I desperately wanted as much sleep as possible. No fair. I sent her to her room to look at books and dozed back off.
A bit before 8am the big kid woke me up a second time to ask if I was SURE it wasn't wake up time yet? Perhaps I had set her clock wrong the night before? I gave up on sleeping, woke up the four year old and got both kids ready to head to my moms. My mom arrived and took the kids off to her place to stay overnight. I took a shower. I stuffed all of the tech I wanted to bring along into my purse; digital camera, ASUS Transformer, power cords. My husband and I packed a few last minute crates into the van and off we went.
