This morning Rachel came up to our room at the almost reasonable hour of 6:10. That's progress as we've just been trying to get her to stay in bed until 6. Dawn actually despairs of ever having a time when we have to wake Rachel up, though I maintain that in 7 or 8 years we'll be fighting with her to be up in time for school.
Since Dawn went off to the bathroom as soon as Rachel came in, Rachel actually came and cuddled with me for once and, when Dawn came back, told her to cuddle with us. For about 30 seconds. Then she asks me, "are you going to have a long day at work today, Daddy?". Probably (we have a major customer deployment, our first, next Wednesday and have to make sure we're ready). "Mommy, how about if we let Daddy sleep since he is going to have a long day?"
