It has been a long and tiresome day. Seems that my boys decided I needed a workout and from the moment they rose from their sleep, I had to be talking. Funny enough, today I didn't feel quite like myself and would rather have had a quiet day. Isn't that just the way it always goes? So what do you do when you feel crappy and the kids won't settle down for the whole day? You make bedtime earlier than it usually is. If I could have gotten my boys in bed from six, I'm telling you, it would have happened. For those of you who think its mean, I dare you to take them both on for one whole day.
Well, I put my boys to lay down at half past six and turned on the TV to help them get settled. An hour later, thankfully they were sleeping. It is now time for 'me' time. As a kid did you ever wonder why your parents put you to bed by a certain time while they stayed awake? Trust me, when you get kids you find out. Though most nights I knock out a minute or two after they have gone down, tonight, I actually had the energy to play a few Facebook games and sketch. By morning, I'll have my poker face back on and be ready for whatever they dish out. Right now, I'm just grateful the break that bedtime provides.
