Allergic To Mondays

Some kids are ready for coffee.

Kindergarten Hangover
This is a typical weekday morning look for Samu. He's had his 10 hours of sleep, mind you - it's just his allergies. He's allergic to Monday. And Tuesday through Friday for that matter.

Because on Saturday and Sunday morning, when he could be sleeping in - he's up at 6:23 am. Typical kid idiosyncrasies, wouldn't you say? In my day, we woke up early to watch cartoons but that's because we couldn't record them - we had to watch them when they were aired.

But Samu's weekend rampage went like this: Sunday, he pounced on daddy in bed, and rolled around under our covers until it smelled of his piss-filled diaper. Saturday, he marched into my room with the DSi and shouted to me that I promised he could play with it when he woke up.

"Well, I'M WOKED UP!"

The only reason he doesn't sneak downstairs to watch television is because he doesn't know how to work the cable remote. Otherwise, I'm sure he'd turn on some Christian preaching show because he knows that would annoy the heck out of me.

Both boys had an eventful weekend: they saw "The Avengers," set up the patio furniture, had a ballet audition and went to a birthday party, to boot. In the fun factor, that would be equivalent to a weekend in Vegas for me. So, I wasn't surprised to be yelled at by the grumpy ol' troll for Monday morning.

Tomorrow, I'll greet him with this:


GOOOOOOOOD MORNING VIETNAM!!!

  2. Dear God, I look like that most mornings before 8am. Christopher pops out of bed at 6am everyday. He's an early raiser like his mommy.

    1. How 'bout I send Robin Williams himself - although Forrest Whitaker would be a total mind blow.

    1. Maybe we should start going to Church on Sunday mornings - that'll make them sleep in.

  5. Not only weren't we able to DVR cartoons...we didn't have Cartoon Network and Nick Jr and Disney Channel and whatnot that showed kids crap aaaaall the time!! And we had to walk uphill both ways. And stuff.
    Monday morning Samu is still freakin' adorable!

    1. We get no sympathy, I tell ya. Perhaps if we said we had to watch TV with no shoes on!

  6. That's funny! I always turn on the Bluegrass Gospel Hour when I want to get Dustin up on Sunday morning. We attend church, but there is no screaming preacher where we go lol.
