Wake Up Call

Today, I realized my temperament improves exponentially with the rise in temperature and percentage of sunshine. With both increasing, I was all smiles today (so were the boys).

Finally, the boys had the opportunity to just be boys. I think they really needed some outdoor play, even if it meant just scooping up handfuls of dirt and slinging around clumps of mud.

It was warm enough to run around at a playground. The boys jetted around the equipment, releasing all the pent-up energy bottled during months of winter hibernation.

Finally, it felt like spring!

Connor reached the top of the bars, and said, "You've got to see this view."

At four in the morning, I heard a knock on my door. The rapping was followed with a "Mommy. Mommy. Mommy!"

I groggily answered, "What Cooper?"

"I have a question for you," Cooper replied.

I mumbled, "What?"

Cooper replied in all seriousness, "Are you asleep?"

Slightly annoyed I responded, "I was."

Even though the room was pitch black, I think I could still see the twinkle in Cooper's eyes.
