Or he is reading my fucking blog.
Cause the bastard turned the night time shenanigans up a notch. He is now the official time keeper.
I knew that bragging last night about him staying in his room was a mistake. I knew it would come and bite me in the arse.
I knew that Murphy hated me, that God and Allah and the Goddess were fucking with me.
But I just had to say that Boo was staying in his room.
And I was getting me some shut eye.
Last night Moo had her end of year break up. Yeah, a Sunday night.
Fabulous idea. IF you didn’t have to pick your kid (and a couple of ring ins) and work the next day.
So Mario-porn-star was going to pick them up. And I was going to go to bed. But I couldn’t sleep, cause I was terrified that he would fall asleep or forget to pick them up.
At 1am Boo woke up. Full of freaking jumping beans.
At 1.15am he wanders out…
‘Mum! It’s 1.15am’
‘Go back to bed Boo’
I lay in bed. I have been up since six.
My eyes flutter…
‘Mummy!!! It’s 1.30am!’
He is standing beside my bed. I walk him back to his room…
The sound of a truck changing gears Mario-porn-star asleep beside me. Of course he doesn’t hear a thing.
‘Hey Mummy!!!! It’s 2.04am!’
‘Boo, it is time for sleep. You need to stay in your room’
Boo in room, me passed out on top of the bedsheets.
‘Muuuuuuum! It’s 2.28 am!’
He is standing inches from my face. I hold back the urge to smack him fair across the fucking room.
‘Boo back to bed.’
He has wet it. And the bedding. And himself. Shit.
Strip the bed, change the doona (we have many cause he uses them as toilet paper) change his clothes, wack another nappy on him and beg him to go to sleep.
Boo room. Me somewhere in the vicinity of the bed.
‘Oooh Mummy it’s 2.45am!’
‘Boo if you don’t go to sleep right now I will hurt you and make it look like a bloody accident’
‘Can I watch Cat in the Hat?’
Yeah, I had that coming…..
I feel a hand on my face. I am curled up at the end of the bed.
‘Hey Mummy! It is 3am exactly!’
‘Boo are you psychic? Are we going to win lotto?’
‘Am I going to get any sleep tonight’
So this continues until 6am. When the alarm goes off.
Mario-porn-star finally gets up after much
poking and punching cajoling and complains of being so tired.
I resist the urge to grab his balls in a vice grip and say ‘Yeah me too.’
Get everyone where they need to go. 3 trips freaky neighbours…. all before 9am. And go to work.
S sees me and starts complaining he is tired.
He looks at my eyes.
I tell him to fuck off.
as you can tell, I am really really tired. I have been awake since 6am yesterday morning. I haven’t come to visit you all today, cause in all honesty I have nothing in my head. I tried a couple of times and all I could come up with was ‘thanks’, good post or something equally banal. I am going to bed NOW cause the devil spawn is asleep and who knows how long that will last….
❤ my lovelies. Your comments today have made me smile.
