Mummy got some unexpected peace yesterday morning. When I woke up I read my books as usual. At 8am, my usual holiday hour for bursting into Mummy’s room and declaring up time, I got out of bed and tidied my room. (Mummy told me I had to the previous night, so I did). At 8.05am I got distracted and played with my Barbies. For nearly an hour. When I finally went to get Mummy up (Daddy had left at 5.30 for the office!) I collected the Bug on my way. This is what his clock said:

"child's clock"When I asked him why he was still lying quietly in bed an hour after his normal wake-up time he said “Because bunny wouldn’t wake up”:

"bunny wake up clock"The Bug can’t tell the time, and so he has this bunny wake-up clock to tell him when it is ok to get out of bed. Until daytime bunny’s light is on, he stays in bed. Wonder how long he would have stayed there…..? Mummy didn’t know whether to be thrilled with her lie-in or worried that she has the Bug too well-trained. Or maybe he just likes the peace and quiet of a lie-in as well?
