This morning Dathen wanted to get up at 6:30, well being a weekend Kev and I were hoping to sleep in. Kev told Dathen who is very good at telling were the big hand of a clock is, that "when the big hand points up" he was aloud to get out of bed. Only 10 minutes lated Dathen calles from his room, "dad I made it point up can I get up now". Kev goes and looks and sure enought Dathen reached his clock and MADE the big hand point up. So kev being true to his word let him get up. Kev also being a great guy let me sleep till 9:30. What a sweety.
I just had to write this story mostly because it was not me walking around in a fog at 6:30 on a sunday morning.
I am looking for ideas on how to get Dathen to eat with us for one meal a day. Any ideas out there would be great. Right now he bits and leaves. We have the rule of no food out of the kitchen, so he just makes like a squirrel and fills his checks then leaves.
