This Morning's Small Heart Attack

Jason's schedule is such that he is generally gone long before I get up in the morning. I will occasionally stumble out of bed to tell him good-bye, but most mornings I don't even remember his alarm. So you may be able to imagine my sense of urgency at hearing heavy breathing and snoring behind me when my alarm went off at 6 AM! All I could think is, "He is SO LATE!"

I gasped, jumped out of bed, and said, "Jason--", only to realize that it was Zander.

Blink. Blink.

Who knew a four-year-old could snore like that?!


  1. LOL! That's how I am with OccDoc - I don't even remember his alarm going off! I had no idea 4 year olds snore; I thought that was a grown up boy thing. :)

  2. It's usually a little baby snore (which I would have been able to identify
    as Z) but this morning it was LOUD. He has a pretty terrific cold; I think
    that is the culprit. But still. Wow!

  3. LOVE! I could! My boys do so badly when they are sick esp. the other night Dan and I were on the other side of the house and I said shh... what is that?

    It was a whistling sound... like coming through a door. Nope. It was Henry in his room.

    Poor guy!

  4. I didn't know four year olds snore.

    And I ALWAYS hear B's alarm.

  5. I would hazard a guess that not all four-year-olds snore. All of ours have snored terribly when they had bad colds. (Yes, even the two-year-old.) I think Sunday night was the worst night of this particular cold and I'm very happy to report that he's doing much better.

    And I suppose that I might have better luck hearing my husband's super-early alarm go off if I went to bed a little earlier. I've usually only been asleep for 3 or 4 hours. ;)
