Today Lucas woke up before 7:00, as he has the last three or four days (and he went to bed after 10:00). Ben told him it wasn't time to get up yet, but that he could play toys in his room. So, he did. Loudly. He came in once asking for help with his shirt, then he came back for help buttoning his shorts, which were on backwards. BUT, the outfit matched. He was also wearing his fireman helmet - his favorite accessory. You can get him to do just about anything if you say, "Firefighter Lucas, would you please..." because firefighters are heroes and they help people.
Anyhow, a few minutes later we heard screeching noises from the laundry room. He was loading the clean clothes into the dryer. It's hard work for a little kid. He has to climb up, hence the screeching noises, then reach far down into the washing machine to get the clothes. He successfully transferred all the clothes, started the dryer and came back to our room. He's so cute... even way too early in the morning.
