Bright and Shiny

How do these kids wake up so quickly? Like I say in this week’s Dustinland comic, they’re like robots. There’s an on mode and an off mode, and that’s pretty much it. Me, waking up is a slow process. I ease into it. Him—nope. Eyes closed, eyes open. LET’S. DO. THIS.

And man, I gotta tell you, it is hard playing with trains from 6:30 am – 8:00 am on a Monday. I love the kiddo and every minute is precious but sometimes I wouldn’t mind if he’d wake up a little later, pour me a cup of coffee and ask me to help him with the Times crossword.

  1. I wish they’d sleep in on weekends and get up early on school days. Its always the other way around 🙂

    • YES! Exactly. So funny, I posted this on Facebook and another dad said the exact same thing. It’s like these kids have secret meetings where they all plan how to mess with their parents.
