New Tricks

D: I was not expecting this one. Really it came out of no where.

Last night, around 12:30am, I heard tiny voices talking about farm animals. Once I figured out I was not dreaming about tiny mice on a farm, I realized that those voices were my dear children reading one of their favorite books to each other. At 12:30am. But how?

I opened the door... "HI!" they both said cheerfully to me, sandwiched together in their over sized rocking chair with the light on.

Trying very hard not to crack a tired smile, I put on my mean face and point to their beds. Finn ran full speed and jumped under the covers. Ollie had several other ideas in stead of going back to sleep ("glass of milk", "ba-ba", "hit golf ball", "ice cream") all of which I politely refused him, and finally he fell back asleep.

1 hour later... "Hi!" Lights were back on and this time they both where running around their room like madmen.

By the third try it was clear that Finn had grown tired of his brother's shenanigans, and I was awoken 3 more times throughout the night by Finn telling Ollie to leave him alone and go back to sleep.

All because Ollie has discovered how to turn on the lights at night.

Last night I chalked it up to the full moon. They certainly act a little nutty on a full moon. However, he has done it twice tonight. The second time the light switch got a nice coating of duct tape, however, as I post this I am hearing them tear their room apart. If this continues, I'm going need a new game plan to try to get my little werewolves to sleep.

Any chance their room is on its own circuit breaker?! Turn it off for a few nights and maybe they will get tired of it???

Of course, there's always the option of duct taping the KIDS to the bed! :)
