I guess I should have included one or two days to drop X off at school and going right straight back to bed, especially if the evening before I decide to go all out taking him sledding, hot tubing, and playing hide and go seek before doing homework and having a family dinner.
Despite the extra quality time X has been "off."
He's getting whiny and irritable, which started last weekend after he got hit from every which way with the holidays.
According to my teacher friends, no child is normal during the Christmas season. They're all turn into crazed little people counting down the days to Santa.
He is certainly counting down the days. Each morning he goes to the Advent calender and announces what day it is and what's special about Christmas time today.
Luckily, somehow, he remembers it's really about Jesus, Mary, Joseph and God, but he still can't wait for Santa to come.
I'll write more tomorrow.
