Any parent knows that sometimes sleeping in on a weekend can be a pretty hefty request. The kids want breakfast or want to play, the TV is on too loud, etc. Well a Washington couple had a solution... leave the kids a note, that has since gone viral.

You can have cereal for breakfast
Yes, you can watch TV / play Wii
No, you may not go to your friends house
No you cannot have a baggie of snacks from the pantry, those are for lunches (yes I mean those ones)
You can have an orange for a snack. That means one (1) each!
Alexia - don't antagonize your brother.
Liam -- don't be a whiner . . . or at least not 2 loud of one.

Reportedly it worked! Parents, before you give it a try on your kids.. .remember, it's not going to always work, so make sure that you save it for those special occasions (anniversaries!) or particularly exhausting days where a good night's rest and some sleeping in is definitely in order.
