My son is 14 and every summer he has a goal to become nocturnal. He wants to stay up all night and sleep all day. Well last night, or shall I say today, his last day of the break, he almost met his goal. Just in time for the new year, right? Today was back to work for me so begrudgingly, I had to call it a night a little earlier than I wanted to last night. I told him good night and off to sleep I go, dreaming of wild children and lesson plans. I wake at 4AM to him rummaging through the refrigerator, looking for a snack. He had yet to go to bed! I yell from my bed to go to bed but quickly fall back to sleep so I'm really not sure what time my teenager/bat went to bed. He text me at 6PM this evening (I was still at school) and said he had just woken up from the night/day. My "Parent of the Year" certificate should be arriving any day in the mail very soon!
Last night I was determined to finish a baby crib quilt that's part of a bedding set my mom and I made for a friend. She called me to ask if we could make it gender neutral but not boring. She wanted it colorful. Sure! No problem! I was thinking it would be easy to pick out fabric for it. Not so much. I was a little worried how it was going to turn out. It's all done and ready to be packaged for delivery and I have to say, it's pretty dang cute! I don't have photos of the whole set yet, but the crib quilt was on my design wall late one night.
Because I stayed up late...because I wasn't ready to go back to work...because it was cold this morning, getting out of bed was a struggle. What was worse, sitting and being professional developed (it can be a verb) for several hours and knowing what needed to be done in my classroom. It all was accomplished, lesson plans complete, Christmas decorations taken down, winter decorations up and home by a not so early hour of 6ish. Of course, since my son missed two meals during his hibernation, he's HUNGRY! Quick meal of spaghetti so I can use up the overripe bananas to make these babies...banana nut muffins. LOVE!
