Do you SEE the time? 11:17. It's 11:17 and all but one of my children are still awake. Plus the dog is making me crazy.
Josh was working on an English assignment. I forced him to bed.
Sophie woke up with leg cramps. I rubbed her leg and sent her to bed.
Ben. Oh, that dear, sweet Ben. Today was lesson day, so we had a couple of late afternoon hours in the car, and of course he fell asleep. So now he CAN'T fall asleep. Last night he snuck out of his bed, brought a box of cereal in to his room to spill on the carpet, tore all the covers off his bed, and brought the bath toys into his bed to spill water on his mattress. Tonight he's changed his clothes twice (who knew he was so good at putting on shirts? I didn't!), read books, and had two poopy diapers. I've told him he can only come and get me if he gets stinky. I think he's learned to get stinky on command. Honestly. Maybe that means potty training will come more easily. (We can always hope...)
Oh, and now it's 11:30 and I just heard his bedroom door softly close.
Tomorrow I am buying one of those childproof doorknob thingies, because I think I will go pure crazy if this goes on much longer.
And did I mention David's on tour until Thursday? Heaven help us all.
