Got a return e-mail from Dylan's teacher. She mentioned he seems tired by mid to end of day. Reminded me of a conversation with the teacher last year.

TEACHER: "Dylan seems really tired. He told me his brothers wake him up all the time and don't let him sleep." Look of disapproval accompanies this statement.

ME: looking horrified (I'm sure). "They wake him up in the morning for school."

TEACHER: Looks at me with disbelief. "Oh, sure. You might want to put him to bed earlier."

NOTE: Other children really do wake up Dylan. Usually it is 20 minutes before bus arrives because he is oversleeping AGAIN and is in a better mood when his brothers wake him than mom.

ADDITIONAL NOTE: As for putting the child to bed earlier. We start bedtime at 6:30 - 7pm. Actually, if you count dinner, we start bedtime at 5:30. 5:30 dinner, 6:30 shower/teeth/pj's, 7:30 story, 8:00 lights out. Any earlier and I'll have to feed him when he gets off the bus. Then when would he work on his math?
