Getting them to go to bed...

Many parents know the struggle of getting kids to go to bed, and stay there nightly. there is always a glass of water or a final trip to the restroom....

Thursday night, we had the kids ready for bed, games played, books read...and the pep talk began. This particular pep talk was with SR.

AWTM: "Dude, you really have to get to bed, you have school tomorrow, you will want to be fresh and ready to go!"

SR: "I know, I know school. I have to get through first grade, then 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th, 6th, 7th, 8th, and then high school, and then college, and then I find a job, and I get married, and have kids, and then I die..."

DH: "poor kid"....

Awww. I didn't realize that when I was SR's age. If prescience is painful, maybe ignorance is bliss.

Talk about having your life planned out.

You know... after his presentation, I was thinking, maybe he could grow up to be a meterologist. Instead of Jim Cantore, we can watch SR. Heh heh heh!!

Nice to see others have weird nighttime conversations... so young and so astute. Hope he realizes the fun of the trip as well!
