Fear of the number 7

My darling children ,

Why are you so afraid of the number 7. It is the only reason your exhausted father and I can come up with. None of you seem to be able to sleep until seven. Do you think you will miss something if you sleep past 7? I assure you, there is NOTHING going on that you are missing. Scooby Doo does not come on, there is still Classical Stretch on PBS. There is no one outside to play with (they are all still sleeping) Don't fear 7, it is a beautiful number. There are many wonderful things in seven's: Seven Brides for Seven Brother's, 7 day's in a week, 7 wonders of the world, 7 day's of Passover, OK that may be a little much but you get my point.

So sleep, sleep till 7 just once, don't worry, I have slept past 7 many many times before you were born and nothing happened but sweet blissful rest. The best part of sleeping until 7, it may hold the men in the white coats off from taking me away for just a little longer. If you all sleep until 7 on the same day, it just may bring about world peace. You never know!!

Love Mommy
