Uh... Something Got Lost in Translation
So, this is how my Monday began...
Dewey: (whispering) "Mom... wake up, Mom! Can I play Nintendo?"
Me: "mmmmmm... wha? mmmm"
Dewey: "Can I play Nintendo?"
Me: "Not right now sweetie... wait until everyone wakes up."
Dewey: "Okay mom."
Dewey: (Yelling in the living room). "EVERYBODY WAKE UP! MOM SAYS WHEN YOU GET UP I CAN PLAY NINTENDO!!!"
Dewey: "I SAID WAKE UP... LET'S PLAY NINTENDO!!!"
"Somehow" all the Wii remotes in the house are smashed into 1,000 tiny pieces after having "accidentally" hit the wall. (wait.. maybe I dreamed that part).
The above conversation leaves me pondering three questions:
1. WHY can't I drag this child's butt out of bed in time to get his brother to Pre-School by 9:00am during the school year?
2: WHEN is nap-time?
3: WHO wants to buy a Wii? (really cheap)
