Laws of the Land, Part II

Or, Isn't it ironic, but in the Alanis Morrisette way which is really-not-irony-so-much-as-"suckage")

  • VanWinkle's* Law: On the same night that your 1 Year Old totally peters out at 6:45 and hits the sack, your toddler will flail around in his bed until 10 PM, not at all sleeping, several times unsuccessfully sneaking out into the hallway but giving himself away by sneezing or bursting into song -- even though he yawned, finished his stories, and crawled into bed a mere two-and-a-half hours earlier.

  • Corollary to VanWinkle's Law: The following morning either or both children will sleep in, making everyone late for the morning's activities, or ruining all the fun of designated "daddy gets to sleep in" day.

*"Rip", not "Robert".

I hate it when everyone in the household sleeps in on "Papa gets to sleep in day."
