The Telepathic Power of Progeny: Because somehow they know when you are not sleeping and have an important meeting the next day.
I have no idea how they do it. Is it inborn? Is it a learned behavior? Is it something like a vision that only strikes when The Parental Units have done something stupid? Like stay up until 2 AM setting up their new Droids…
However these incredible powers came to be, one thing is for certain: If two parents have the tiniest little lapse of judgment, because they did happen to get their first smartphones just prior to the store closing and have to play and setup up their phones so they can be reachable and make certain their ring tones can be heard when someone sees fit to call them, and thus stay up until 2 AM working toward such a goal (and adding a few other vital apps for Must Entertain Children Emergencies), at least one of your children will not only wake up earlier than normal, but they will wake up and stay up WAY earlier than normal.
This is even more likely to occur, if the previous day you were “allowed” to sleep in until 8 AM.
Add in CG’s massively important meeting this afternoon with the CEO of his company (whose power point presentation he has been working on for many weeks), and suddenly you have The Perfect Trio of Triggers to Trip the Telepathic Powers of Progeny.
How do they do?
Why do they do it?
Personally, I think it’s just to frack with you.
Happy Friday all. Here’s hoping you had more than four hours of sleep. 🙂
