Harness that energy – kid powered homes!
Can anyone explain to me exactly what it is in the wiring of children that gets them more wound up the more exhausted they are? Or at least explain why it is that a particular lithe red head of about, oh…. 42 pounds, gets totally fired up when she’s about to fall on her face? ACK!
Okay. Seriously? What the heck!!! How is it that these half pints have the energy they do NORMALLY? And then how on earth do they triple that, doubled with a lack of ability to focus or listen to anything or anyone, when they are so exhausted that they should have the mobility of a sea cucumber?
Can anyone explain this phenomenon to me? Has anyone studied this ability? Is there any way to harness this energy to, say… power an off-grid house? If not? Can I get in on it? Donate an exhausted child to science? It would be kinda like “bring your daughter to work day”, right? Except it would be “bring some random kid to the science lab day”. People would go for that, wouldn’t they? It’s just one day…. and it would give us parents a break. 😉 I’m sure most of us would be willing to sign a waver or something saying that it’s all good.
Yep. You have NO idea how relieved I am that she’s asleep (like 30 seconds after her head hit the pillow).
