Our 3-year-old son, Stinkpot, made yesterday a difficult day. He simply woke up on the wrong side of the bed – at 3 in the morning!!! He burst into our room screaming at me, “You left me alone! You left me alone!”
“Come here, Stinkpot.”
“NO! Go back to my room!’
He was inconsolable! Screaming and flailing on the floor.
Maybe it was a mistake on our part, but to encourage him to stay in his bed all night, the “Bed Fairy” brings candy if he wakes up in his bed in the morning.
WOW! He was NOT going to be anywhere but in his bed in the morning.
FosterDad took him back to his room and comforted him back to sleep. When Stinkpot woke again at 8 a.m., he seemed to be in a better mood…
But wait! There’s more!
After breakfast, he began a morning tirade, that kept us from attending church. (why risk him going off on his classmates?)
He finally took a morning nap, and the day went better.
When we were able to go to lunch, I made the decision again this year that I wanted my Mother’s Day lunch to be enjoyable so……
WE WENT TO CHUCK E. CHEESE!!!! Again this year.
(You MUST read about how FosterDad was upset at me last year for choosing Chuck E. Cheese for my Mother’s Day lunch)
It’s becoming a tradition.
How was your Mother’s Day????
