Little Sleep + Pure Sugar = ???????

The magic answer is "who are you and what have you done with my sweet child."

We've known for a long time that Eli has behavior problems when he's short on sleep. We've also noticed problems when he ingests significant amounts of pure sugar (smarties, ring pops, etc.). Sugar mixed in with "additives", (chocolate, desserts, etc.) don't affect him much. Mix the two together and "oh my, who are you, and why can't you behave". Tonight was one of those nights. Whew.
