Woke up at 0500. Showering and one of the boys gets up. Tell him to go back to bed. Then the next one gets up. They yell at each other to go back to bed until I yell from the shower to go to bed *now*. Youngest one wakes up. The older two are in bed and I finish my shower. Then the steam from the shower sets off the fire alarm. Then *all* of the fire alarms. Then the older two boys start screaming. I finish resetting the alarm and now everyone's in our bed.

Good morning folks.
