Mr K-E likes his online gaming; his latest thing is Counter Strike Source. It's some kind of team commando shoot-em-up game...or something. He plays in his "den" with the lights dimmed and his giant headphones on. It's all about capturing enemy territory...or something. Can you tell that I'm not much of a computer game buff myself? :)
Anyway, this is all well and good but he does tend to lose track of time when he is playing. Which means lots of creeping into bed at 4:30 am on a school night. OK if you are a student who doesn't have to get up in the morning; not so great if you have to put in a hard day's work. There's only so much caffeine you can ingest before you get the shakes.
So tonight I have to get him to bed at eleven (his instructions). I have to ignore any pleading or "it's OK, I'll only stay on for another half an hour". This is tough love, honey.
