Bedtime Blues

Bedtime can't be this difficult, can it?

No. Seriously.

I thought my boys knew better - meaning they would brush their teeth, and go to bed at 9:30pm.

Sadly, they did not and continued to make a raucous upstairs.

Boys! Arghh!

I thought an afternoon of skating would tire them out but I guess it didn't do the trick. They still have lots of energy, and are still awake!

And so I marched to their room, full of displeasure and told them it was way past their bedtime.

A series of accusations ensued; along with finger pointing and glaring.

However, my lecture silenced them - especially when I told them they were not allowed to play computer next weekend.

Oh well.

Tomorrow is school, and we can't have them up till midnight. Right?

I hope I don't have to address this issue again. And we can say goodbye to the bedtime blues.

Man Cave

I'm amazed what kids say nowadays.

In fact, I'm beginning to think my boys have a sense of humour.

During the last week of Christmas holidays, my boys were free to play computer games and watch their favourite movies.

I was busy cooking dinner when I went to briefly check on them upstairs.

I asked where they were and what they were doing.

"We're in the man cave!"

Oh.

Man cave?

How the heck did they know about that?

And I didn't even know we had one!

Sigh.

Wonderful Memories

It's been a month since I last posted.

Oops.

You could say December was a busy month.

There were Christmas parties, school concerts, shopping and even a huge birthday bash for my twin cousins at The Fairmont Royal York. It's hard to believe we did all those things before the holidays!

This time around I was so behind schedule - I ended up shopping just days before Christmas! That was crazy!

Then there's the decorating, cooking, baking and gift-wrapping. How do we do it all?

Where are Santa's helpers?

Oh, I hope it was a magical Christmas for my kids - I try to do my best.

It's so tiring, isn't it? Whew!

And now that the presents have been unwrapped, and New Year celebrations have ended.

I have time to write again.

But it was the best of times - I spent them all with my family.

I hope you all spent them with yours. And I hope you had a wonderful Christmas and a Happy New Year!
