The most stressful and tense moments in our home are without a doubt, the hour before school in the morning.
Until recently Sam just couldn’t get it together. Seriously, he couldn’t get *anything* together … not getting dressed, not brushing his hair and teeth, not eating his breakfast, and he was DEFINITELY unable to come up with his toque and mitts. Many days I’d find him curled up near the bathroom register staying warm (weird but true … and yes, we do heat the house) rather than getting ready. AHHHHH!
However, since we purchased the PS3 he’s is a different wee man. Just check this out:
Not only does he know where his toque and mitts are … he has them ON! Priceless!
He was so excited the first night we had it. Turning it off and going to bed was extremely painful. When he asked me if he could play before school (we don’t allow tv or computer before school), I felt sorry for him and knowing that he’s never been ready and organized for school in his short little life, I said, “sure, BUT only if you are ready”.
He has been ready every morning since. I am sure there is literature out there that says “gaming” before school isn’t good for you. It can’t be any worse than your mother screaming like a BANSHEE and threatening to ring your neck, right?
Oh, the peace! Screw the literature.
Do you do anything you sort of ‘know’ you you shouldn’t just to keep the peace?
I am having another contest! For another pair of Bical Grippers. A bit boring, but I am LAZY (been that way for quite some time … a whole life time in fact). I will draw the winner on Friday, March 21st, 2008 (@ some time). All commenters from now until draw time will be entered to win.
Would you tell a friend? Please? See that little facebook thingy just below this post? That’s a great way to tell your friends!
