Silly boy

When most kids are transitioned into a big kid bed their parents have the fun job of getting them to stay in their beds. Not us. Nope, we are working on getting Collin to get OUT of his bed!! He won't get out of his bed when he wakes up in the morning or after nap time. And he doesn't even call us anymore- he just lays in there and coughs!! I don't know why coughing came to mean Mommy will come in and tell me to come out, but it's been working for him. We tell him every time he goes to bed that when he wakes up he should come out. But every time around his wake up time we hear the coughing and eventually we'll go in and tell him he can get up. He's such a kooky boy!!

I had to laugh at this blog post. That kind of conversation with my boys drives me crazy!! I love them, but sometimes their irrational thinking and non-stop talking gets to me. And all 3 of my boys are chatterboxes. Occasionally I want to run screaming to my room and lock the door behind me! I don't though. Not because I'm a mature, patient Mom.....but because I know if I do I'll be listening instead to them banging on the door, screaming, crying and the yelling of "Mommy, open the door!" repeated over and over. So I stay and listen and try to smile. Or I tickle them. Laughter makes everything better!
