Happy Birthday of the Unconquered Sun!  

I got up this morning and lit a candle for the Ember Days, because defying the gods of a fictional world is just how I roll. And also it was certainly long before sunrise, so I’ve done my part in showing the sun the way back today (although I think tonight may actually be the Longest Night. Close enough.). Happy Birthday of the Unconquered Sun, everybody. :)

I tell you what, poor Indy is so wrecked that I’m about ready to wrap all the presents and declare it Christmas. He is SO. EXCITED. So excited and stressed and anticipatory and tired that, when he got in trouble for something this morning, he went into total meltdown and demanded that we cancel Christmas. He even tried to start taking ornaments off the tree. Poor wretchedly exhausted boy. I’m glad I went to bed at 9 o’clock last night. @.@

Poor Indy. Poor Indy-folks.

That's the one Ted keeps thinking of. I keep riffing on Stacker Pentecost: "Today...we are CANCELLING...CHRISTMAS!" :) :) :)

Would a small present a day help alleviate the stress for him? Sort of an abbreviated advent?

When I saw your tweet about Young Indy's 5:53am pronouncement, I admit my knee jerk reaction was to tell him unless he stopped, Santa wouldn't come.

Now, reading his cancellation of Christmas, I feel terrible for thinking that. Laughing, but terrible. Poor kid.

Well, you can't do that with a 4 year old anyway. I mean, first off, it'll cause hysterics, and a hysterical 4 year old at 10 to 6 in the morning is much much much worse than a happy one. But second, at least with *this* 4 year old, once he's up, he's up. *Normally* he wakes up between 6 and 7, but occasionally it's as early as 5:30 and we've never been able to get him back to sleep. Even if he wakes up at 4:30 it's an almost 2 hour process to get him to sleep again. @.@

And this is why I'm not a parent. :)
