This morning I got up and went downstairs to find the following:
  1. TV still on with games connected.
  2. Food trash all over the family room.
  3. Rearranged furniture.
Last night when I woke the boys and all three of us went to bed it was NOT this way.

Clearly they were both up during the night playing video games.

I know this because the food trash was equally distributed between the areas where they both sit.

This makes me so irritated.  I also doesn't help with the trust we so badly need to develop.

I told them it breaks my level of trust when I think they are sleeping and they have left their rooms in the middle of the night to play video games.

I asked what time they got back up and who was the instigator.  They don't remember who woke the other.  Really?  You sleep in separate rooms...who got up first?  They also have "no idea" what time they went back to bed.

I explained that from now on I will take the gaming systems into my room at night and lock them in the safe in my bedroom.  They can check them back out from me the following day.  They think I am not being fair.

Prayers for developing trust and understanding how it becomes violated.
