I’m exhausted so this needs to be a short blog. Why am I so tired? Oh, you’ve guessed it… Fred and Lamont. The boys have adopted an anti-sleep campaign against me. Oh, no, not those sweet boys… Yeah, those two…
It started about two weeks ago. Lamont decided that I needed to know, at one a.m., that he was out of timothy hay…at one am! He started begging and begging and would not stop. After five minutes of ear splitting whining, I had to get up and give the boys…er…Lamont more hay.
The another night Fred decided to annoy his brother five a.m. I was jarred out of sleep by a banging and teeth chattering coming from the boys’ cage. I got up and walked over to the cage. Fred was head butting the plastic hut in the kitchen area of the cage. Lamont was inside of the hut loudly protesting Fred’s actions. I told them to be quiet and go back to bed. As I headed back to bed, both boys started to whine for breakfast. I tried to go back to bed and had no luck falling back to sleep. I gave up and fed them. The boys stole an hour of sleep from me.
The “Mom, we need it now at x a.m.” has continued. There has been bickering, furniture moving, bowl flipping, zoomies, and general craziness at early hours. I think the boys have some sort of spring fever… I would love to tell you more about the boys’ antics…but, I’m exhausted. I’m going to bed. *yawn*
