Well that was until Thursday night...
Charles my 5 year old was moving a bit slower than the previous nights. I made his lunch, we didn't lay out his clothes and he didn't go to bed until around 10 despite my efforts to get him in his bed.
I should have known that Friday morning was going to be rough. We got up and he was still moving as slow as the night before. I finally got him to put his clothes on. About 5 minutes later he comes running out of his room with a pillow stuff up the back of his shirt and yelling "JET PACK, I'M WEARING A JET PACK!" He was blasting himself off all the furniture, jumping off the tables acting like a crazy person!
I finally captured him and took off his jet pack (removed the pillow from his shirt) and told him to go find his shoes and put them on.
10 minutes go by and out comes Charles and Guess what he was doing...
Yup, Jet Pack re mounted and screaming "JET PACK!!!"
and yup no shoes!
I used my stern mommy voice and asked him where his shoes were. He looked at me and said
Him..."I can't find them"
Me...""Did you even look"
Him..." I was looking"
*** long pause***
Him "well I was looking at the T.V."
What is a mom to do?
At least he was honest!
