I'm a single black mother that is raising a wonderful lil boy!!!
I soooo can't wait till this weekend. I am exhausted!!!! Working all this OT is making me tired. But I am so thankful that my mom picks my son up from headstart. I don't know what I'd do if I didn't have my mom. She has helped me through so much with being a single mom. So when I get paid next week, I'm going to treat her to dinner or something just to show her how much I appreciate her.
I still can't get my son to sleep in his room a whole nite. At first I was awarding him and he was doing good. But when he got real sick, I had to let him sleep with me so that I could check on him periodically through the nite. Well he got used to sleeping with me again. And now he don't care about no award, he just comes in the middle of the nite. No matter how many times I threaten him, he still won't give up till he is sleep in my bed. And this week since I've been so tired, I sleep real hard and when I'm in that deep sleep I can't hear him sneaking in my room. I even have like lil bells on my door that when he opens it I can hear the bells, but since I'm in a dead sleep I can't hear shit.
I'm at wits end trying to find new and exciting ways to break him. I spent all this money on making sure he has a nice room, and I'm sad about it cuz he's too young to understand to appreciate it. I recently got him a new bed (I spent a pretty penny on it too). He's a real big SpongeBob fan, so his whole room is done in Sponebob. His sheets & comforter is Spongebob. One of my friends from work gave me a Spongebob wall clock and a waste basket. My mom bought him the Spongebob lamp. He has a Spongebob dinner tray and a Spongbob moon chair. And for Easter, I just added to his collection a dinnerware set. So now he has the plate, bowl, cup, fork, and spoon!!!! And not to mention I have him a travel cup with the straw with Spongebob. He also has movies that he watches so much that he ends up scratching cuz he done wore them bitches out!!! I mean I spoil him to death and the only thing I want is for him to do good in school (which he's doing great) and SLEEP IN HIS ROOM!!! I don't ask for much cuz he is 4, but this is driving me crazy!!! And people keep telling me it's gonna be awhile since he's the only kid and so attached to me. Man fuck that!!! Some of the girls from work give me tips and I do it. Sometimes they work but then sometimes I'm back to square one especially when I'm tired.
So blog fam, any ideas are always welcome.
