Yep... I remember many a Saturday morning when my Mom would wake my brother and I up at 6 AM to watch cartoons. We'd go to the living room, lay under some blankets, eat dry cereal, argue over what show to watch next, and spend about 5 hours watching TV.
I never understood why my Mom was so willing to wake us up that early and then go back to bed while we watched TV. Now that I've got kids of my own, I understand... we must have been zonked out right after dinnertime. Sneaky parents trick to get the kids to bed early.
I am not a man! I am a free number!
