my kingdom for toothpicks to prop my eyelids open

My youngest has been up since 4am.  He has days like these.  I don’t know if it is just me being tired or what, but it seems like he is pushing a lit of buttons today. Not just mine, but all of the people in the house.

So what recommendations do you have to keep a 10 year old in bed, or from waking up the rest of the house when he gets up at that hour?

the rule is that he is supposed to wake me.  Twice now, he has used the excuse that he didn’t know where I was sleeping, so he woke up his brother instead.  So now his brother is going to wake me up.

very frustrating.  But, it isn’t something that he has a lot of control over either.

maybe I can get my wife to let me take a nap when she is done with her course work for college.
