Okay, I have parenting questions for the Apt. 11d Peanut Gallery.
School ended last Thursday, and I’m losing my mind already. Jonah, who is now 16, would like to sleep until 2. Ian, Steve, and I are up at 6:30.
There are practical reasons for losing my mind about this eight-hour time difference. It makes group family activities difficult. It means that nobody is eating meals at the same time, and thus, the sink is perpetually gross.
And there are more emotional reasons for losing my mind. I’m working my ass off, and the punk kid is sleeping! Arg!
Should we have a compromise hour for waking, like 9 or 10? Should I let him sleep until 2? Should I enlist him in a military academy?
