I wasn't planning on doing a Proud Mommy Moment post this week. But the post kinda wrote itself...
Joel left this morning for training. Since his report time was so early today, I asked if he wanted to sleep on my side - the side closest to the alarm. See, I have a horrible problem with either hitting snooze a million times or just turning off the alarm while I'm still asleep. But Joel decided he trusted me and that it would be fine.
Fast-forward to 1 1/2 hours after the alarm went off... Grace is at my side of the bed crying, asking to sleep with us. I look at the alarm, look at Joel and have a total freak-out. I thought I told him to get up 1 1/2 hours ago. But apparently not or not well enough. I turned the alarm off.
So, in the next ten minutes, Joel races around grabbing stuff, getting dressed, saying he's not mad - and he's out the door. I go upstairs to tuck Grace back into bed. And then I realize if it wasn't for our little Grace asking to sleep with us, Joel could have gotten into a lot of trouble. And most likely, it would have been my fault.
Even though it's annoying most nights, I'm glad Grace tried to sneak in our room last night!
