What would you do for sleep?

So noah came running into my room this morning at 6:15am asking to go out to the car and get his bear! Needless to say I rolled over and went back to sleep. I heard him then go run into sydnie's room and wake her up. From there it was quiet playing in the hallway with their magnetix. Suddenly at 7:30 I realized they were being awfully quiet...that is when the feeling of dread came over me...what were they doing? I walked quietly to the playroom and realized that they were in the closet playing. Which is off limits by the way. I knew something was wrong, they are not this quiet...I happened to look down and saw lots of little styrofoam beads, the kind you put into bean bags. I knew without a shadow of a doubt that they had opened a newly acquired bag (still waiting to buy covers) and were playing with it. I go to the door and they had locked themselves in, went to find a key and told them to start cleaning up. Needless to say, I did get to sleep in, but I have spent the last two hours "helping" them clean up all the tiny beads. They lost their privilege of going to watch the Keizer Iris Festival parade this morning and we will have to see about the birthday party. So what would you do for a little extra sleep....let the silence continue or go investigate?
