Every morning Cooper wakes up at 6:11. The alarm clock goes off at 6:15, but he just can't wait to start the day.
I really don't mind on Mon - Fri. We have to get up for work anyway, so 5 minutes of sleep does not make much difference.
However, he does not understand that Sat and Sun are different and 6:11 is just TOO EARLY to get up. I try to call Cooper up on the bed, but he will only lay down for about 15 minutes and then he wants to go out.
With Danny it was easy - just let him out the front door, wait inside and he would be back in 2 minutes. However, Cooper needs to be walked and that means getting dressed, getting shoes on, and a coat and gloves.
Once you have done all this and walked for 20 minutes in the cold, there is no hope of Jeff or I getting additional sleep.
Cooper, on the other hand, has an egg with breakfast and then curls up for a nap!
