After being on steroids for 3 days, Enzo was acting crazy. He was throws fits and crying and refusing to do anything we asked. I told him if he did not start doing what he was asked to do I was going to throw away the Mater Tall Tales video game I bought for him. Of course, he was still acting crazy and throwing fits. So, I pretended to throw away the game. We finally got him calmed down and off to school. When he got home, he asked if I would buy him another game. I told him sure. I had already put the game back up with the other games. The next morning, I hear this excited scream from Enzo saying “Thank you, Mommy! Thank you, Mommy!” I look in the living room, and he is holding the game. I felt bad for lying, but I love how appreciative he was about getting the “new” game.
When I walked into the kids’ school to pick them up, Ms. Amy (Skye’s teacher) looked at me, smiled and said “you have the funniest kids! Skye tooted on me today and then laughed like it was the funniest thing ever!”
It was 8:30 at night and Enzo had been watching the iPad in bed. As I go in to tell him he needs to get to sleep, he looks up at me and starts to cry. “Don’t do this to me, mommy! Don’t do it!” Why do kids fight going to sleep so much?
