Monkey created his own day off from school today by waking at 2 AM and staying awake until 5:30 AM when he finally crashed. Umma was woken up again at 7 AM by a whiny little boy who had run from his room, where Duhdee was trying to wake him up to take a shower , and hopped into her bed. He had the covers pulled up to his chin and he looked to be on the verge of tears with his eyes were squeezed shut. Just by looking at him I knew he wasn’t going to be able to hold it together today if we made him get up so I called off the torture and let him go back to sleep. He slept there until a little after 9. Umma still had to get up and go to work though. I sure hope he’s feeling better than I am right now!
