My Night Owls…It’s All My Fault!

Every night, without fail, it drives me crazy!  Go night-night babies…it’s late!  Every night, it’s the same old “I’m not sleepy Mommy”. 
In my head I think “Of course you’re not.  You’re my kids.  We don’t go to sleep like normal people.”  But in my outside voice, I say, “Yes  you are!”.  You see, these 2 should be in bed by 9 but that is rare (oh who am I kidding? That never happens!).  I’m a night owl and I hate mornings.  Apparently the coffee nut doesn’t fall far from the tree. 
This is not good for Mommy!  No, no, no…Mommy needs down time!  I guess that comes between 2 and 3 AM?  OY!  One of these days, I’ll get a couple of hours to myself, and a little bit of sleep. In the meantime, I’ll amuse these 2 into the wee hours and be thankful that I have them in my life!
Rock on and I hope all of y’all get a good night’s sleep!  It’s time for bed…GOOD NIGHT!

    My girls were night owls when they weren’t in school and I was a SAHM. Then when they got into school, I tried to change that, but it wasn’t easy. I’m a night owl and didn’t get to bed until almost 3am and now I’m exhausted. LOL I don’t get to sleep in anymore, but I still don’t go to sleep any earlier. hahahaha

    I could have written this… my little monkey says “I’m just awake Mommy, just awake!!” 🙂

  3. I can SO relate! My little guy has been a nightowl from birth. Luckily, I am too! He is two and it’s rare to get him in bed and asleep by MIDNIGHT!! He gets a second wind around 11 and if he had it his way would keep playing until 2. Lucky for me he also loooves to sleep in!
