Five More Minutes....

My sweet, miracle baby boy is ten today! How in the world did that happen? Seems like I just blinked my eyes and bam! He's ten. He is also entering his tween years. For years when I would wake Landon up in the morning, all I had to do was whisper, "Good morning, Landon" in his ear and he would jump out of bed and could hardly wait to get to school. I was the luckiest mom in the whole world! This year though.....this year, he has decided he needs to sleep for 2,402 hours. Getting him out of bed is now a morning nightmare. We go through a half hour routine of, "Time to get up..." and "Five more minutes..." then, "Please get up..."and "Five more minutes...." then we go to, "Get. Up. Now!!" and "You're sooooo meeeeeaaaaaaannnnn...." We have tried many different routines, but it always ends up with, 'You're soooooo meeeeeeaaaaannnn...." Kinda sucks, it does., This morning I surprised Landon with a birthday present.....

This is the remote control car he has been begging for.

"Time to wake up, Landon...."
"Five more minutes...."
"Wow! What is this in your bed??"
"Five more minutes...."
"Look, Landon! It's so cool!! Check it out!"
"Five more minutes..."

"You. Need. To. Get. Up. Now!!"
"You're sooooooo meeeeeaaaaannnn....."

Nope. Not even a fancy, schmancy, remote control car is gonna get that boy out of bed. I will try and get some better pictures tonight for his birthday post. If he's awake by then....
