Black & White Wordless [#9]


You wake up and find someone [who won't confess] has broken the head off the teddy bear alarm clock. I thought he was ugly anyways, but I just wish the kids would break his lower half off now [give them another week]. I'll post the bearless-alarm-clock soon I'm sure.

Either way, he still helps my kids stay in their rooms until 7am
[most days]

How do you keep your kids in bed?
Or am I the only one whose kids like to rise before the sun?

  1. 7 am?? It's more like 9 am around here! :) LOL! My hubby turns on cartoons before he leaves and the kids watch them until I am all put together. :)

  2. Like you we have a time. But ours is 8 on the weekends, and if they can't sleep then they can jot to the back room of the house (laundry room) and watch tv back there. During the week they have to be up by 6:30 however, that is about to change soon.

  3. gee, I find that picture quite disturbing! lol

  4. I too find the teddy bear exceedingly ugly. She does a decent job of keeping the kids in bed. That was until yesterday when LIBERTY came walking into our room at 6:45 am. Still trying to get a straight answer out of the 3 year old as to how her 1 year old sister got out of the crib and through 2 closed doors...

  5. My kids are getting better. Actually, this morning I told them not to get up until I "released" them. They were standing in their doorways when I got up. LOL

  6. I don't have that problem but I plan on strapping my kids down in their beds. JK

  7. Hi! I've hopped onto your blog and had to laugh at the photo. I have added myself as your newest follower. Don't worry when your kids are teenagers they never want to get out of just need to figure out a way of hiding from them until they are older!
    Please drop by and maybe follow me if you fancy a laugh. I'd be delighted to welcome you.
    Friendly wishes from a very snowy and cold UK

    This blog post is hysterical. I laughed very hard.

    I hope the rest of your clock gets effectively broken asap (and by broken I do mean still functions without the decapitated bear).

    I have no advice of my own to offer - I'm living in a tiny cabin with one bedroom so my kiddo and I share the room. . . and he can climb out of his crib on his own, I know because I've gone in there and found him napping with toys he did not have when I put him down in the first place. . . so basically that means I am a sleeping racetrack for his matchbox cars until I unlatch the door and let him loose.

    A leash, maybe?

    I'll be back.

  9. When Jaana was around 2 or 3, I printed a picture of a clock where the hands showed 7:30 and I taped it to the wall next to her clock. I told her once the hands on the clock matched the picture she could come wake us up. If she woke up before that, she could get out of bed but had to play in her room quietly. Worked like a charm!

  10. Oh my, no advice from me:) This could have happened at my house.

    You just got yourself another follower.

    Happy New Year!
