How to Cope

He didn't want to eat his food.
So he fell asleep. This is not the first time.

He falls asleep other times too.
Jobie: Can I have some gum?
Mommy: No, not now.
A few minutes later.
I find him in his bed.
Asleep.

Jobie: Can I play wii?
Mommy: No, not now.
A few minutes later.
I find him in bed.
Asleep.

It seems to be his coping mechanism.
Silly boy.This time I moved him to his bed.
He slept for 3 hours.
When he woke up he said he was hungry.
I can't imagine why...

Lucky for him.
I had his snack all ready.
The food he had refused to eat earlier.

He was not happy with me.
But I guess he wasn't tired enough to fall asleep again.
He ate it.

So, Jobe copes by sleeping.
I cope by cleaning.
How do you cope?

I eat. Carbs and sugar.

Eating.
Organizing.
Crafting.
I should do more of the second two.
Less of the first.
