I am not a morning person, and despite Dylan turning two and a half this weekend, I still have not got used to early starts.  I do not function at five am, I cannot hold a conversation at six and I do not want to watch Sarah and Duck at seven.  I have finally given in to eight though, and that is when our day starts.

Archie still needs to be convinced some days, his body clock is still a bit wobbly and we can alternate between half past seven and half past nine wake ups, despite his bedtime being a steady seven pm.  Dylan on the other hand, can read the clock - well a digital one anyway.  When he comes sleepily into our room in the morning, the first thing he does is check the digital clock on the bedside table.  If the time starts with a seven, then he either comes in for a cuddle, or sits on the end of our bed with a toy, waiting for it to tick over.

The moment a number 8 appears as the first number, he pounces ' wake up mummy, it's eight'o'clock, it's eight'o'clock'.  He demands attention, cold blue milk and the Tweenies, and after bringing me my slippers, I give in and start the day.  

It is not just eight'o'clock that the little guy looks out for, he loves to ask the time, and knows that one is nap time and seven means it is time for bed.  He seeks out numbers, and digital clocks are a favourite, but he will point out traditional clocks at every opportunity too.  It won't be long before we are teaching him to tell the time, and we have been looking at watches at The Watch Hut.  At the moment neither the bloke or I wear a watch, but I think Dylan will pick it up so much faster if we have a clock face for him to study to his hearts content.

But until that day, the important time to remember is eight'o'clock - before then is still the middle of the night as far as I am concerned!

  1. I am such a morning person, I'd rather get up at 6 and get things done! Although I can't do anything until I have had my massive cup of coffee and woken up ;)
