This morning I woke to the sounds of little feet running on the floor above and sounds of “SHHH, mommy is still sleeping!” I looked at the clock to see 7:00 and I thought, What are these girls doing up now? With the time change, it is really 6:00. They don’t even get up that early for school!!! I wish they would go back to bed! But they didn’t.
Instead, they came downstairs and tried to quietly play Lego Friends. By tried to play quietly, I mean arguing about whose turn it is to play with the Lego pool, shushing each other because mommy is trying to sleep, pushing each other out of the way so that the other can get to the Lego school, and so on. This is not my idea of quiet.
Finally, I asked the girls to go upstairs and watch TV so I could get about 15 more minutes of sleep. The moans and the groans accompany the stomps up the stairs until I hear the Disney Junior song. I hear them upstairs giggling at an episode and then I hear them both recite a line from the show (they must have seen this episode more than once).
“Jinx!” I hear them both say at the exact same moment.
“Double jinx!” again at the same time.
The girls have not spoken in about an hour. Thank you to the man/woman that invented this abnoxious game. Now I can sip my coffee in peace!
