A Day in the Life of a Riplet
Our day begins each morning between 5 and 6am. I am usually the early bird and I try to get up about 5:15am. Sometimes, if Jack & Addison have been up all night, I decide to sleep in until 5:45 but that's only under extreme circumstances. Speaking of getting up, this week we will be working on getting up 10 minutes earlier each day so that by Daylight Savings Time this weekend, we will be back to our normal 5:00am wake up time. We overheard mommy & daddy talking about how we'll start getting up at 6:00am once they move the clocks ahead and we wouldn't want to mess with our great schedule.
Anyways- our day begins with a sippy of milk and some Veggie Tales. We love our "VT" time which is what mommy & daddy started calling it. I think they think we don't know that "VT" stands for Veggie Tales. We know exactly what they are talking about when they say that in "code". Around 6:30 am we get breakfast. This is the best meal of the day because we get waffles or pancakes and yogurt melts or regular yogurt. Sometimes mommy gives us a banana, too if we seem really hungry. My favorite food by far is Gerber Yogurt Melts and I'll come running from anywhere in the house if I hear the bag shake or open.
If things are getting boring, we usually start climbing on the furniture. Jack is the "goody-two-shoes" who usually doesn't climb. He always reads books while Addison and I climb and jump and "act like monkeys" (that's what mom calls it). I recently figured out that once I'm on the couch I can climb onto the end table and throw things off. Mommy & Daddy do not like me doing it, so I try to do it as soon as they turn their backs on me. They always catch me though and usually try to pull me off. I think its really a fun game to play with them. I'm so glad they play along! The other day though, I fell off the end table and got stuck hanging by my feet between the table and the ottoman. I screamed for mom and Jack tried to get her attention. She was down by the front door and didn't see it happen. Boy was she surprised when she saw me (or my feet)!
