Operation Thermoplyae

Filed under: Uncategorized — lbej @ 14:06

Brinky’s might cannot be overcome.  He will not sleep; victory is impossible.  His hours of wailing and pounding on the door every night have taken a physical and mental toll on everyone–myself included–that can no longer be borne.  Long, late naps–his favorite kind–give Brinky the power to fight sleep (and his parents’ will) until well after midnight.  Therefore I have decided to sacrifice naptime to save the evening.  Henceforth I will not allow–let alone force–Brinky to take a nap if he does not do so by 1:00 in the afternoon.  Today is such a day.  All hope of sustained, productive writing and editing will be lost, presumably until the fall of 2016.  But I have to face the facts: I simply have not had the success to justify saving my afternoons if the price is the one sleepless night after another for everyone.

It is over for me.  But I assure you Brinky will not prevail either, not on his terms.  He is going to be one tired, tired boy come 8:00 tonight.  We will face annihilation and madness together.  It should be fun.
