The time change has been pretty brutal on the babes. Philip especially. He fasted from a nap yesterday and slept in as if in a hang over this morning. Tess, on the other hand, napped like a trooper yesterday only to wake up at 5:00 am. When I asked her what was wrong she replied “Food!” She then had a very early breakfast and dad took her downstairs to wrestle her back to sleep.
So when nap time rolled around, we were ALL very tired.
Being a dictator, I ordered sleep for everyone, including mom. Usually the boys sleep seperately, but the last two days have been wanting ot be together in the guest room. So I laid down with them to “encourage” them to sleep. Philip was extremely chatty. I suggested he shut his eyes.
”When I shut my eyes I can see the lake. Or Mama Syd and Papa Chris.”
Squinting his eyes fiercely, “I can’t see dem!”
“Just close your eyes and go to sleep, buddy.”
“But I can’t see ‘sings’ with my eyes closed. My eyes are dark.”
Max and I started to giggle.
Eyes shut tight again. “My head is dark!!!”
Prologue: ALL occupants of the house DID have naps. And it is now 11:10 and Philip is still awake and chatting. Darn that daylight savings time!
