Well I've noticed.
I'll bet money there's going to be a comeback when I tell him it's time for bed. (We're working on back talk...can't you tell.)
I type pretty fast so I'm going to dictate what he says...
9:08 p.m. PST - In family room - I say, "Nathan, it's time to go to bed."
9:08 p.m. PST - "Uh huh." He groaned.
9:08 p.m. PST I say it again..."Nathan, time to go to bed."
9:09 p.m. PST "You already said that." (His tone was borderline disrespectful but I'm not letting him pull me into a fight.)
I say, (Still calmly) "Yeah - but you need to go to sleep now."
9:09 p.m. PST - O.k. he walked off to his bed. No asking for water, bathroom, matching pajamas, nothing...
He must know I'm typing about him. :)
Let's check back in a half hour to see if he has tried to sneak back to the family room to get on the computer.
Oh pooh - I forgot to tell him to clean up the legos. Great. Now you know who's going to have to get those up. I'm out of here...I need to make sure he brushed his teeth.
