Who Needs Sleep?

So Gabe has been waking up in the middle of the night a lot the past couple of weeks and usually wanders into our room crying, and all he needs is to be tucked back in most of the time. I have been telling him different things, trying to get him to stop waking me up in the middle of the night, because I don't do very well without my sleep. Tuesday night I told him that if he wakes up and it's still dark outside, he needs to just go back to sleep. I asked him to please not come and wake up mommy and daddy when we are sleeping because we are tired and we don't like it when he wakes us up at night.
I wake up at around 3 am and I hear Gabe downstairs saying "Ashlyn! Ashlyn, wake up!". He is standing outside her bedroom door yelling to her. All I could do was laugh, I guess that is what I get for not being more specific!

That is funny! But you have to admit, he is pretty resourceful! Smart boy!

What a stinker! Kennedy wakes up if it's too dark... ah the joys of 3 am wakings! Can he read numbers yet? A friend put a BIG digital alarm clock in her girls' room and said they couldn't get out of bed until the first nubmer read 7. It worked for her like a charm!

PS- I bought a cricut! yikes! I need to send the bill your way as you persuaded me.... so tell me what I absolutely need for the darn thing!

Yeah! congrats on your purchase!! You need cartridges!!! And I just got my Michaels ad... they are on sale for 1/2 the normal price so you should check them out!! Did you get the giant one? The "Expressions"?

Jen - I bought the new big Expression model cricut! What cartridges are "must haves"? Have you tried the vinyl lettering? Any tips or must-do projects??? I wish we could cricut together! :)

Oh, I'm jealous. I bought mine before the Expression came out. Let's see... I love Alphalicious (my favorite for sure) and All Mixed Up. I also really like ZooBalloo. Michaels has them all on sale for $39 right now... you should check it out, down from $89. I haven't cricuted anything other than cardstock because I'm worried about gumming up the machine, but I'm just slightly overprotective of my cricut. ;)
