The other night Aaron and I were playing a game and the boys kept sneaking out of their room. After telling them to go back to bed a few times we just ignored them and played our game.  They eventually got quiet and we ended our game and went to the family room to watch, "Lost."  During a commercial I heard a rustling behind the end table.  I jumped thinking there was an animal back there.  I got brave and took a peak...Noah, fast asleep.  I giggled.  A while later, he woke up and stumbled his way to the bathroom.  He came back in the room and sat in the middle of the floor.  I noticed he had socks on because he started to take them off.  He was struggling so Aaron went to help him.  Aaron laughed and said, "He's got two pairs of socks on."  Noah said, "No.  I have 3."  I asked him why in the world he had 3 pairs of socks on.  He said, "So I could be quiet...it's not comfortable."  Well it worked...he got past us and made his way downstairs without us catching him.  When we came up to bed, we found Joshua in our bed with a ball of lots of socks by him.  I asked him about it and he told me that Noah wanted him to be sneaky...but he just wanted to sleep.

Tonight, we came up to bed and I turned on the light.  Joshua shot up from our bed and yelled, "It was Noah's plan!"  Two naughty boys out of bed way past bedtime and chilling in my bedroom.  And Joshua...I KNOW it was Noah's plan :)

This cracks me up! I love to see the evidence of what went on in the night when I thought everyone was sleeping :)

Hmmm, wish I'd thought of that when I was little.
