The Long, Painful Road

Monday was the start of our journey back from Summer Vacation. The kids went to bed a bit earlier, slowly working toward normal school hours. Findley is also practicing getting up early in the morning. Because he has been in the afternoon Kindergarten class for two years, he’s gotten used to staying up late to read and sleeping late in the mornings, sometimes until well after 8:00 am. Grade one is about to bring a world of pain.


Wvar _gaq = _gaq || [];
_gaq.push([‘_setAccount’, ‘UA-22845532-1’]);
_gaq.push([‘_trackPageview’]);

(function() {
var ga = document.createElement(‘script’); ga.type = ‘text/javascript’; ga.async = true;
ga.src = (‘https:’ == document.location.protocol ? ‘https://ssl’ : ‘http://www’) + ‘.google-analytics.com/ga.js’;
var s = document.getElementsByTagName(‘script’)[0]; s.parentNode.insertBefore(ga, s);
})();

After waking him on Monday, I couldn’t wait to leave for work; practically running from the house and his grumpy mood (the lucky boy, he’s just like his mom in the mornings, without the coffee kick start). Tuesday was a bit better. He was still grumpy but the boy managed a smile and a quick kiss goodbye. It may be due to the fact that he fell asleep early the night before, rather than reading until 10:30!

Wvar _gaq = _gaq || [];
_gaq.push([‘_setAccount’, ‘UA-22845532-1’]);
_gaq.push([‘_trackPageview’]);

(function() {
var ga = document.createElement(‘script’); ga.type = ‘text/javascript’; ga.async = true;
ga.src = (‘https:’ == document.location.protocol ? ‘https://ssl’ : ‘http://www’) + ‘.google-analytics.com/ga.js’;
var s = document.getElementsByTagName(‘script’)[0]; s.parentNode.insertBefore(ga, s);
})();

I hope we get over the worst of the transition soon. Even though he has a very cute grumpy face, it would be nice to see a smile and a positive outlook. I’m just not ready to face the attitude of a teenager yet!
