Surprises

For whatever reason, i slept late this morning. It was 9:30am by the time I got up, and that's unlike me. Knowing that Erik is supposed to be up by 9am (we don't want him sleeping the day away), I thought "well, I can't very well give him shit for being asleep, since *I* was." I sit up, rub my eyes, and out my bedroom door I see him just coming out of his room with an armload of stuff.

*blink*

Yep. Not only was he up on time, he got right to work on his room. This is the same kid that usually drags ass downstairs right as he's supposed to be awake, falls on the couch, and stares off into space. I dunno, maybe he made coffee, y'got me. All I know is he's got more done today than I've seen, and he's still going strong. I went up for a bit, helped with a little planning, and let him know I was proud of him for stepping up and doing right, so if he gets the closet done today, he can wait and clean up the rest of the room tomorrow.

Every now and then, the boy surprises me.
