Funny Micah story

Micah loves to be first. He is the first one ready for school every day and the first one ready for bed. Tonight when I was tucking him in, I noticed that his socks were really dirty. I pulled them off while we were talking and he said , "hey , what are you doing?". I said taking your socks off because they're dirty. He said , (direct quote here) "I know your plan! You're trying to make me not first to get ready for school."

We talked some more and apparently about a month ago he figured out that if he didn't take his socks off at night, this was one less thing to put on in the morning. Efficiency expert in the making.

Ha! Good one! I was like that as a kid. I'd sleep on top of my perfectly made bed with another extra blanket I could wad up and throw in my closet in the morning. Viola! No making the bed. :)

He's brilliant! I was the same way too. I would lay my clothes out on the floor in the shape of my own body so that I could dress in my sleep practically. What a funny guy!
