Why, God?  Why?  What possesses children to get up at such horrible, ungodly hours??  My sister and brother-in-law are in London and I’m stuck with the kids for a few days.  They went to bed at a reasonable hour, they each got up once in the night.  This morning, they both felt it was time to get up at the same time.  5:30 in the god damned morning.

 Want to die.  So sleepy. . .

    Oooooooh I know how that is. When I go visit my kiddies my godson bangs on my door at 6:00am screaming “wake up!”. It’s lovely, isn’t it?

    And they hate to nap, too.

    They’re testing the fence for weaknesses, and they’ve learned you’re weakest early in the morning, making it increasingly likely that you’ll let them eat ice cream for breakfast.

    It’s the one thing I don’t like about my son. He’s an early riser. 6 am he’s up and wants you up too.

    *Red: I’m really looking forward to the 2 week vacation that we’re going to take soon.

    hanmee: How’d you guess.

    pistols at dawn: There was ice cream in the freezer and my nephew did ask for it. He got a frozen waffle and liked it.

    Mike: A very ungodly hour!

    Baby Benadryl…. I hear it’s the best for knocking the little curtain climbers right the hell out. Ugh! Children..spawns of Satan….why o’ why did you agree to do that to yourself?

    The Idea of Progress: Am running out to buy a bottle right now!

    CinnKitty: Wait, is that for them or for me? I figure if I take it, then it won’t matter what they do. Right??

    Just remember…they’re strong, but you are still stronger. Don’t let their confidence get to you.

    My son was all but passed out on the floor, with a pillow under his head, but he still screamed “NOOOOOOO” when I said “you wanna go to sleep?”

    (No, I’m normally not that silly/stupid- hey, don’t ask the question if there is any possibility that you will get an answer you will have to ignore. I don’t ASK if he wants to go to sleep because of course, the answer is ALWAYS no. I just asked for the heck of it b/c he was actually on the floor like that.)

    No..no…no..!!! Never let yourself go unconscious with the rugrats around. Heaven knows what they will do to you while you are helpless. Best case scenario – Snidely Whiplash moustache drawn on your face with permanent marker……worst case: you waking up naked, duct taped to the front porch while your house burns down and the little heathens run around whooping Indian war cries.

    What?? What?? It could happen! ;p
