Outside the Box

"Energy and persistence conquer all things." ~ Benjamin Franklin

I need a white flag. I can't keep up. When Jack was this age, he was getting pretty close to giving up naps. Unlike his sister, though, he would get up around 7:30 or 8:00 and go to bed by 7:00. But not this one. Yesterday she got up at 5:00--4:57, to be exact. She fell asleep eating her lunch, right before we had to leave for class and errands. When I had to dress her, 10 minutes after she dozed off, she woke up and kept going strong until 7:30.

Today she slept in until 6:30. She rode around in the car this morning and this afternoon. She ran around the gym, danced in the lobby, chased balls, and climbed bleachers. She finally gave out about 8:15. Add to this the stomach bug that Jack has picked up, and I think I've been conquered. If my captors could keep up with the cooking and housework on their own, I think I could go along with it!


"I've got mad energy for days. That's what people can't get their minds around. They say, 'Oh, he's going to crash.' They try to apply all these common terms to a guy who is not common. I don't fit into their little box." ~ Charlie Sheen
