This note written by parents to their kids is pretty much what every parent wishes they could write ... but few would likely achieve success if they did.
If you're a parent, you know sleeping in is living the dream. In fact, if you have young kids, you've likely forgotten what that concept even feels like.
If nothing else, your perspective on what sleeping in means has no doubt changed. But even one day of regular rest can change a lot, if you can finagle it.
How can you? Please read Exhibit A above, from start to finish.
The way mom outlines what they can and cannot do, and basically tells them how it's gonna be, all with smiley faces and love? It's the work of a master.
The major caveat is that the author of this persuasive manifesto is mom to two bigger kids (ages 8 and 10), but she tells Reddit that it was a success.
As for how you keep toddlers out of the bedroom ... good luck.
