I knew I would have a good story!

Yesterday was a pretty un-eventful day. The kids got through with home schooling a lot better than I thought they would and the day was pretty mundane. Jason came home from work, we ate dinner, watched a little TV and then headed off to bed.
I went in to check on the girls before going to bed and didn't see Stephanie's cell phone by her bed.(She uses her cell phone as an alarm clock every morning). Monday morning I had her cell phone in my room and we all slept in 15minutes later than we should have. So, I was determined to make sure she had her cell phone for the alarm Tuesday morning. I looked all over the house to no avail so I decided to give the phone a call and find it that way. Listening intently for the sound of a ringing cell phone, I dialed the number. As soon as I dialed I heard the phone ringing in Stephanie's room. I quick hung up and ran into her room but it was too late. The ringing cell phone had woken her up. I ran in, gave her a big hug, and told her I was so sorry I had woken her up. I quickly explained that I was just looking for her cell phone because I wanted to make sure she had an alarm. She was so out of it, but said, "that's ok mom, I was already awake." I gave her another hug and headed off to bed.
Jason then told me, "oh yeah, Stephanie puts the cell phone on vibrate and sticks it in her pillow." So we hear Stephanie get up and go to the bathroom (mine as well make use of this late night interruption). Next thing she does is turn on the hall light and go back into her bedroom(I'm starting to get curious now). The next sound I hear is Stephanie opening her dresser drawer....ok now I start laughing. It dawns on me, Stephanie didn't realize it was 10:45 at night, she thinks it time to go to school. Jason walks out of the bathroom himself, and sees me laughing histarically on the bed and asks what is so funny. I said, go see what Stephanie is doing, I think she thinks it's time for school. Jason walks down the hallway and stops Stephanie midway down the hallway, holding a t-shirt fresh from the laundry room and says, "Stephanie, it's only 10:45 at night, it's not time for school." To which I hear a loud, "WHAT!" I'm sorry but I was still laughing so hard I had tears in my eyes!
Jason took her back to bed and tucked her in and then came to bed. After a few minutes of giggles, I calmed down. Jason told me I was a mean mom and poor Stephie thinking it was time for school. I told him I wasn't trying to be mean and I really was sorry but that I knew exactly what was going into my blog tomorrow morning! :-)
