|Mendelssohn: Essential lie-in listening.|
Further evidence that certain people in the household are growing up at a rather rapid rate.
You see, The B has stopped getting up in the morning.
Not altogether, although I imagine that is an issue I'll have to tackle about 10 years from now.
No, just a change in routine, albeit quite a significant one.
For so long programmed to rise at 7am on the dot, The B has, for the last four days, stayed tucked up in bed until 8am.
Loving his lie-in? He gets that from his parents.
It perhaps doesn't prove growing maturity, not on its own, at least.
But consider this.
The B still has a monitor in his bedroom and, given that a four-year-old's movements are none too subtle, it's not difficult to figure out everything going on up there.
Yesterday, he woke up at around 7.45am and spent the next 10 minutes content beneath the covers.
Just after 7.56am he climbed out, opened his curtains and blackout blind, turned on the radio in his room and got back into bed.
It's tuned to Classic FM and he spent the next 10 minutes listening to the news, the day's weather forecast and a short Mendelssohn Piano Concerto before coming down to join us at the breakfast table.
Cultured? Perhaps a little. Highly-strung? For sure.
Classic FM? Classic The B.
