I'm too tired for this
Andrew's new go-to phrases are, 'I'm too tired for this.' and 'I don't have much time.'
Yesterday when I asked him to take his jacket off, he got it half-way off and tells me, "I can't do this. I don't have much time."
On Sunday afternoon while we were getting the boys ready for the playground Andrew tells us, "I can't go to the playground. I don't have much time."
And my favorite, last week, while doing his homework he starts to write, "I'm too tired for this" at the top of his homework paper. "Mom, how do you spell tired?" I pointed out that writing "I'm too tired for this" would take a lot longer to write than actually doing the homework on the sheet.
All this makes me wonder if these are phrases I say a lot. But, I don't think so. I can't remember saying "I'm too tired for this" though I'm sure I've said, "I don't have much time." But I don't say it that much.
Perhaps the new Kindergarten schedule is catching up to him. Poor guy. Maybe we should look into earlier bedtimes to help him not feel so tired. Though, it wouldn't help with him feeling so pressed for time. Seems like a Catch 22, I'm afraid.
This was my mom's birthday card. Though, when I talked her on her birthday, she told me all about the card my sister sent her. Man, what is with THAT?? ;)
