I just don't get it.

Sean wakes for work at 4 am. His alarm clock wakes him. He is not the quietest person in the morning, I usually hear the drawer in the bathroom open a close 2 or 3 times. I can hear him in the kitchen too.

I woke up this morning at 5:30 am. No alarm. Just woke up. I tippy toe to the bathroom and seconds later I hear Connor.

What the hell?!!

And now I'm going to not only be tired today but I'm going to have cranky boy until I can put him for a nap at 9 because he's been up since 5:30.

Grrrrr.

Mary Jo has to stop sucking he thumbs. The dentist said that the damage is not just to her teeth but that her palate is growing wrong because of it. If she doesn't stop now she'll have to have a "cage" put in her mouth which will make it impossible for her to suck her thumb. And this cage is no removable. (by us, only the dentist can take it out)
This is so hard for her. I know, I've been there. I was 10 before I stopped sucking my finger. We put bandaids on her thumbs and to my knowledge she hasn't sucked them since Monday but last night she didn't have any bandaids on and I know she sucks in her sleep without knowing.

We promised her that when she is thumb free we'd take her to the Mandarin for dinner and she can get her ears pierced. I just hope she can stop soon enough that she doesn't have to get this device.
