Pop Tart @ 3:47AM

Both of my kiddos have great sleeping habits and bedtime has never been a hassle around our house.  Last night or should we say early this morning, around 3:25AM, I heard a certain little boy stirring in his bed.  I listened for a while as he talked to himself and then he started hollering, "Momma, Momma, Momma".   I decided I better go see what was going on after I realized he was not going back to sleep until he got a response from me.

I walked in his room and he jumped up and said, "Momma, I am starving and I need a Pop Tart now." Hmmm, nothing like a STRONG WILLED child who knows exactly what they want, right?  I explained to him that it was dark outside and he needed to go back to sleep.  I even opened up the blinds to show him it was the middle of the night and attempted to cover him back up.  He jumped right back up and said, "Momma, I am starving.  Pwease Momma, I need a Pop Tart".    I told him I would got get the Pop Tart, lay it on his dresser and he could eat it as soon as he woke up.  "Nope, I need it now Momma pwease."

Yep, I gave in to the Pop Tart request.  Not sure if it was the "pwease" or "I'm starving" part that pulled at my heart strings the most.   Good part for me was I got to hold him in my lap for 15 uninterrupted minutes and look at his sweet little face while he ate it.  Worth it to me, but his Daddy thought I was nuts and perhaps that is because he lets him hold, hug and kiss him all the time.  You got it, I am second best to this kid, so I will take 3:47AM any day he decides to share it with me.

Pop Tart + 3:47AM + Sitting in my lap = One happy boy and One happy Momma!  That was the last package of Pop Tarts buddy, so you might want to stay asleep tonight.

Hahaha! He looks wide awake, never would have guessed it was 3:47am! He is too cute. My boys haven't pulled that one on us yet, but it may still be coming. Glad it was a sweet time with your little guy though; those are times to remember forever, I am sure. He is a doll.
