I worked every single day this week and I am utterly exhausted. I’m lying on the couch and Ari is watching Blue’s Clues while playing with my toe nail. Now he’s trying to stand on his head.
The problem is this, Ari doesn’t care that I’m exhausted. He wants to draw, run around like a maniac, chase the cats and be a toddler. I drew with him earlier, but once I sat on the couch, it was over.
I’m really having trouble forming a coherent thought and the idea of speaking in real sentences scares me. I blame these symptoms on standing on my feet for 8 hours straight for four days.
Ari just gave me a hug. Then he said:
“Yes?” I replied
My head just fell off.
What do I do when my kid wants to run around and act insane, but I have no energy to run after him?
