Better to write for yourself and have no public, than to write for the public and have no self. Cyril Connolly (1903 - 1974)


Holiday Sleep

I love holiday sleep. I get to turn off my alarms (yes I have quite a few of them to wake me up. I can't make the boy late for school now can I?), and enjoy sleeping as long as I ...wait, that's me dreaming. I have kids!

But they do stay up late on the holidays too (because I'm a fun mom like that) and then get to sleep late. They like it, I love it. We are all happy.

For the past few days I've been sleeping IN. Way in! I don't always feel guilty.  But it's two days away from school and I need to get back into routine and discipline.

So today dinner will be on time and kids will be in bed by 8 and we'll nurse the holiday feeling back to every-day-regularness.

I don't foresee any problems with the kids, afterall, I'm the parent and I just don't put up with kiddiepoo. I sometimes get weary when I see parents behaving as if they are afraid of their children and afraid to make changes and etc.

I'm the mom.
Think Supernanny. Yes, I don't play.

I'm so glad I got to spend such a long time with the babies without all the schedules of being hither and thither, and I know I'll miss Dboy when he begins school again. Let's not even mention baby girl starting school this year. I'm already wanting to cry.

I will miss my alarm clock free sleeps, but weekends are worth waiting for too even though it's just two days.

Did you get good holiday sleep?

  3. I kinda changed my posting schedule to allow me to sleep in every morning. It was just kicking my butt to have to get up and post every day!

  4. I let my kids stay up late during the holiday also. I love getting to sleep in during that time because when its school it is back to business.

  5. Oh Yes, I also loved Christmas break for the same reasons. I love your attitude and parenting! Enjoy them while they are there, routines and all. Because they grow up way too fast!! I miss my 3 boys being young And at Home!! :-)
