The Winds of Change

Two weeks into 2010 and life is making some changes that I am not ready one is sick and life is going along pretty well but JBM has decided a few things need to change.

First, he has decided that he no longer requires my help in waking up in the morning. He has an alarm clock for that. What?! This is one of my favorite times of the day. We had a whole routine that included Ms. Hope as the alarm clock. She is looking very bewildered as well.

Second, JBM had decided that once the light goes out in his room at night, he no longer needs Mom or Dad to "hang with him for one minute." That one minute always turned into 10-15 and included nice conversation about school, friends and what might be bothering him. When will we get these conversations in now? Before school and after school in the car are designated "down times." I sense there is a brooding teenager just around the corner.

Oh...and we do need to work on the alarm clock piece too. He set it for 5:45AM yesterday. I was not even up yet....and since it only takes him 10 minutes to get ready, he had WAY to much free time on his hands before school. Free time for him, sends my routine off in a big way. Maybe that is why I have been completely out of sorts this week?


  1. Please tell him to forget that alarm clock in Fla.

    Change is not easy when it means your children are growing up. But it will be okay, just not for you and Fly Boy!

  2. LOL....I remember that transition. It is a toughie...

  3. Oh no. Oh no. Oh no. I love that picture and I do NOT like to think of them growing up... 5:45 AM?!?!?!?! Jimminy Crickets!
