I love my teenager but...

I work evenings. I do not go to bed until about 5:30am. My wife works a similar schedule. About once a week my son will miss the bus and need a ride to school.

This morning Debra wakes me up and asks if I want to take Dearth to work or if I want her to do it. This is female for "please get your sleepy ass out of bed and take your teenager to school". I would cheerfully let her drive him if I did not want to sleep on the floor for a month.

This weekend may be the time for a life lesson. I think I will wake Dearth up about 2am and have him go down stairs to do the dishes. I will make him stay up for about 40 minutes and then send him back to bed. I think that will give him an idea of what it is like for us.
