Busy Man




First of all, I'm going to explain the blog blitz thing that has been sitting on my side bar.  I know you're all just dying to know what it is!  DL Hammons   came up with this really cool idea to "blitz" one lucky blogger once a week.  What the heck does that mean?  It means that on the chosen day, all bloggers who are on the blog blitz list will visit that special person and leave a comment on that person's most recent post.  That's potentially hundreds of comments.  Pretty cool, huh?  Everyone on the list will have a chance to be blitzed.  If you want to participate, hop over to DL Hammons' blog and sign up!  

Today's lucky person is PK Hrezo, so stop by and leave her a comment!



Okay.  Now for the story.

"Mama," my eight year old son said.  "I'm really busy at night."

I tried  to surpress a laugh.  "Oh yeah? Doing what?"

"Well, I roll up my pajama pant legs.  And then I knock my blankets off.  But I wish I wouldn't do that, because I like my blankets on the bed."

I nodded.  "Uh, huh.  Anything else?"

"Yeah.  I talk and sometimes I get up and walk around."

"While you're asleep?" 

"No. While I'm half asleep." 

I looked at that boy. "Why don't you just stay in bed and be totally sleep?"

"Because sleep is boring!"

    2. I taught my kids to drive before they went to driver's ed. It wasn't that bad. One time, though, I made Favorite Young Man pull over and let me drive because he was changing lanes without looking for cars. Now he can outdrive me with both eyes closed and no hands on the steering wheel.

    1. Why is it that kids don't want to sleep, and grown ups do? Oh - maybe grown ups have to catch up on all the sleep they missed as kids! :o)
