Minus the “Sleep all day” part.
Little Bugger was up last night. Have I mentioned how sleep deprived I am? No? Are you sure? I’m pretty sure I b*tch about it EVERY FREAKING DAY.
This kid takes a dose of sleep meds that should put an elephant to sleep. He takes TEN TIMES the melatonin dose I take. Whiskey, Tango, Foxtrot?
Actually, the Guy I Live With and I figured it out last night. Bugaboo was behaving erratically last evening (which is different from every other day exactly how?) and we commented that it was day four of spring break and at least we got to day four! Because it usually happens on day three! And that’s progress, right? I mean, that’s a whole twenty-four hours longer!
Part of the issue is the schedule. And even if I keep him busy during the day (insert ill-fated zoo trip here) he still gets all kinds of out of whack. Which reminds me. Next time I get the bright idea to go to the zoo, I’ma gonna remember that taking him to see animals that live in water behind large sheets of glass may or may not be in my best interest. Like, a kid who is obsessed with water? Yeah. That. Remind me NOT to take him to watch swimming polar bears, mmkay? Although, he laughed and enjoyed watching the otters swim and frolic and bite the heads off of fish and spit out the fish guts and stuff. Nature at its finest. Except not so natural since it’s in a zoo and stuff.
The good news is that I currently have a new distraction. I’m not obsessed with the Internets enough so I’m thrilled my Mother-in-Law got me hooked on researching my family tree and filling in holes and stuff because I needed more stuff to keep me from doing housework and get errands done. Ahem. But it’s kinda cool to find out that your family goes back many centuries on both sides and fought in The Civil War and some came over during the Irish Potato Famine and others, who insisted they were German and only German actually have English/Welsh roots and EVEN ONE DUTCH PERSON. Go figure.
I’m off to drink another gallon of tea in a futile effort to keep my eyelids from becoming too heavy. And eat too many potatoes, because I CAN.
