Grouchy, grouchy, grouchy....

The title is the PERFECT description of The Boy (yes, he's been demoted to Boy status because of his attitude).

But yet, it also describes MY attitude of late to a tee (which would demote me from witch to....???).

The Boy had decided at some point late, late last night - or early, early this morning - that he needed to re-set his "sleep schedule" and decided to stay up and finally crash early tonight - thus insuring that he'd awake refreshed at a normal time (i.e., in the morning and not early afternoon) tomorrow when we have someone coming to work on the house and need a coherent individual to be available.

This experiment has been "trying" to say the least.  Remember when your toddler was late for his/her nap?  Now multiply that by about a million.

I, being the ever supportive mother that I am, have been attempting to keep him awake until it's a decent hour to go to sleep.

Do you think he has been appreciative of my efforts?  No.  He has not.

In fact, so far, he's been lucky that I haven't washed his mouth out with soap and beaten him soundly about the head and shoulders...

But the night is young...

  1. Ha! It sounds like a battle of the wills going on to me. And he doesn't have a chance, being a young'un and not wise to the ways of the world. I look forward to the next installment of the soap opera... :-)
