Okay today is a school day right? Yes it is. So that means that my children are woken up at no later than 6 am. Aaron has to get up earlier than that because he catches the bus much earlier than the rest of them. So at dinner last night Aaron was telling us about mythology and this book that they have been reading as a class. He has really gotten into and comes home telling us about why this God did what he did and how this Titan got into trouble and such. So Daniel last night started just "looking" at the book. I went in about 9 pm and told him he could stay up just a few minutes longer reading. I forgot to go say lights out. Well guess what he did?? He stayed up about half the night reading that book!! Yes you read it right. He doesn't even know how long he was up for so that has to tell you something. He got to chapter 5 and there are a lot of pages with small words on them that make up just one chapter. You did what??? You now have to get up for school and all he can talk about was this book. He came down stairs with it in his hands. I had to take the darn thing away just so he would get ready this morning. I never ever in my lifetime thought I would have to take a book away from any of my kids. I told him he was going to be tired today he well I'm not tired right now. I said just wait till after you eat your lunch. I am a bit concerned about the whole situation because it shows he doesn't have self control. That is scary. Should I be concerned? Or am I just overreacting?
I am a very busy mother of 7 wonderful children. So my life is never dull. We are quite the zoo I am realizing but who doesn't love the zoo right? This blog has become my journal so you will see the good along with the ugly but thats our life.
