Lights are On, But No One's Home

Argggg! My son has landed in the space cadet zone! How do I know?

1. Almost any question is answered with a blank stare.
2. Son gets into car and forgets pants.
3. Son remembers pants, then forgets shoes.
4. Meals are optional.
5. Stories have to have multiple endings (can't decide on just one).
6. Son walks into walls while reading.
7. Mom has to shoot off flares in the house to establish eye contact with child.
8. Son spends a lot of time "thinking", while staring at ceiling.
9. Breakfast takes 1 1/2 hours to finish because, see number 8.
10. The most repeated sentence in our house is, "Are you listening to me?"

He's not even six yet! How on earth am I going to make it through his teens?

He's a BOY! Welcome to hell, pally. And no, it doesn't get better for a long, long time. Sorry.

@Lin: Is that it? I was hoping it was a growth spurt. Now he's falling out of bed too.
