I’m the kind of person that’s likes to take advantage of every moment with my kids. Their only little for a short time..right?
Having said that, if I could fast forward to bedtime tonight I would… Elliott and Gavin are doing pretty well but Emmett is impossible right now. I don’t know what has gotten into him but whatever it was must have been laced with hyperactivity, defiance, aggression and a pinch of crazy.
He is just all over the place and it seems as though he enjoys wreaking havoc on every one in the house.
In reality, he’s getting a reaction from the boys and that’s the pay off for him. No matter how many times I explain to the boys, especially Elliott, not to react, they never seem to catch on.
Right now, Emmett begins a chain reaction that ends with Elliott freaking out, Gavin melting down and Lizze and I looking for the closest circus that we can both run away to.
I just need to make it 2 hours. That’s it, just 2 hours. When I say it out loud like that it doesn’t seem so bad. However, in real life, it swear to God the clock is rolling backwards………
I have SO been there. I know how it feels to have every minute feel like it is an hour. Bed time will come eventually!
