Good morning,

Joey's first day of middle school is on August 23rd. He has to be on the bus at 7:30 but has been sleeping in. I had a talk with him and he told me that he wasn't going to bed tired an it's true: he's gotten up as late as midnight to use the bathroom so I let him stay up until 10:30 and we had a little father and son time watching Looney Tunes on DVD. To my surprise he was up at 6. I know it's the exception rather than the rule but it's a start. I need to run out some of his energy though.

Same here. Good morning.

I think we're going to hit the park today to burn some energy off before the six a.m. wake-up call tomorrow for school.

We always get into the time cycle the last weekend prior to school starting. Even if they don't get up as early at least they will be in bed sleeping early. And of course the first few days are fairly easy because the kids are running on adrenaline. The second week is when reality kicks in. Good luck to all.

Good morning,

We just got Joey's classroom assignment. School starts in 2 weeks. Summer's winding down. Enjoy it while you can.
