11:00 PM Friday the 13th


It's eleven o'clock at night. My husband is quizzing the nine-year-old on itunes. She has a wealth of musical knowledge - latest answer Siouxsie and the Banshees. I am giving the five-year-old piggy backs through the living room and she dancing on the arm of the couch. The product of after dinner s'mores, warm weather and the promise of spring. Tomorrow we will sleep in ... late. A child that sleeps to noon is nearly as valuable as one who goes to bed at 7:00 pm. We only live one life.

Tomorrow Frugal Friday, or if you prefer Spartan Saturday.

But for now g'night.

I agree. I let my kids stay up on weekends. They went to bed at 11:30, and my nine-year-old niece is visiting as well. She stayed up until nearly 1:00. She and I were playing the Wii and having too much fun to stop! (And they didn't sleep in past 8:30, much to my chagrin).

I can only hope that the child who used to go to bed at 7 turns into the one who sleeps til noon. Something tells me she will, but will I still appreciate it?
