J now has his own Omnetrix bought
Christmas made the situation worse when a close friend (thank you S) bought J a boxful of Ben 10 aliens and various attachments for his Omnetrix. Now each evening when I put J into bed, wrap him securely in the duvet and kiss him good night he settles for all of 2 minutes before leaping form the bed and creating a variety of bumps and squeals while saving the Earth. Aaaagggh!
Threats and pleas to calm down and go back to bed fall upon deaf ears and usually at least 2 hours of "earth saving" go by before J's goal is achieved and mankind can sleep safely in their beds once more. At this point J usually settles down with a sigh and a book and at this point may fall asleep ....... unless the earth is threatened once more when he summons up the energy (just HOW does he manage this I am unconcious by 9?) to defeat them once more.
So - this week J is back at school, this week I have to try and get J to fall asleep at an earlier hour as the lie ins are finished until next weekend. So - this week I will be taking a tired little boy to school most mornings - the school will achieve wonders with J every morning but by afternoon he will be finished and tired with no energy..... until bedtime.
