Today was a little tough. Eric & Nathan were fine, as long as they weren’t within 4 feet of each other. Preferably on different floors really. As soon as they were within inches of each other, the fighting, whining & shrieking began. Generally it ended with someone (Eric) crying & someone (Nathan) being hauled off to his room for a time out.
Eric slept most of the afternoon, so you’d think that would have improved his mood. Not so. Still grumpy as ever. So, at 10:00 I finally wrestled them into bed. It should have been sooner, but I was on the phone to my favourite, slightly younger, high school friend getting to hear all about her big news. I am still pumped up from hearing it.
Nathan was into the candy this morning (left over from the party) & was pretty much out of control for a few hours. So, no more food dyes & candy for him for awhile. I can’t take that anymore! Not that it is good to feed that stuff to anyone, but especially not to a boy who is high strung to begin with.
Me, I am exhausted. But also too wound up to sleep. Nathan is now hanging out on the couch as he can’t “weep” (sleep). I guess this gives us both a chance to watch “Dragon” on Treehouse.
