I've been working lately, so Ray has had to go to daycare everyday. He loves it when he's there but getting him to go is sometimes difficult. Generally, he's amenable to getting into the car but once we're at 'school', he doesn't want to get out. Like I've mentioned before, he gets really, really comfy in that backseat and sees no reason to get out of it.
Fridays, however, are different. Ray won't even come downstairs to get IN the car, nevermind get out of it once we're at school. Lately, Ray hasn't even wanted to get out of bed. He's tired from all that playing on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday. So, last Friday when I saw him curl up on the futon while I was getting ready for work, I knew I was in trouble. I tried to move him, and when he wouldn't, I got my camera and set it up to record for all his fans, Ray's passive resistance. I also wanted to show everyone how much of what I say, Ray understands. Notice that when I promise him that we'll do something tomorrow because it's the weekend, he gets right up. Ray is no dummy. Like everyone else, he's just tired by the time Friday rolls around. He has the Friday Doldrums and is ready for his weekend to begin.
