Yrs, I'd forgotten what it's like to have a little kid in the house. A little kid who talks non stop and eats like a horse. A little kid who wants to help with everything and is forever under your feet. Our wee man is ten chronologically but in actuality he is really only about four or five. He still carts his stuffed animals everywhere and is unpredictable in his reactions. We are still working on table manners and tooth brushing and all manner of things that a ten year old handles with grace and aplomb. When bed time came around and he'd been showered and hair washed and pajama'd we found out how much of a 'little guy' he really is. We called the momma so he could say goodnight and then began the painful process of getting him to stay in the bed. He must have been up and down a dozen or more times. I finally had to get quite stern about it. That held until around 3:30am and then he piled into bed with us. Little kid elbows and knees are sharp and bony in case you didn't already know. Something else I had forgotten. Anyway, this morning, after a 'loggers breakfast' we got him off to school. Phew A free day now until it's time to pick him up. The momma has her hands full with this one.
