On Wednesday night, the neighborhood started setting off small fireworks just after we’d tucked the boys into bed.
Ahhhh, the things you never know until you are a parent. That 9pm is a seriously bad time for parents to hear fireworks!
Of course our kids had their faces glued to the window until at least 10pm – even after we had gone in our own room and turned off the lights. Thankfully, we peeked into their rooms a little later and saw that they had collapsed in their beds (albeit heads at the wrong ends) eventually on their own.
This all reminded me of a couple of pictures Sterling sent me of his granddaughter Lilly.
Apparently, Lilly has been doggedly preferring to snooze upright in the lap of a grandparent than to go to her bed. She issues a silent protest when the law is laid down.
Grandparents: 1. Lilly: 0
Of course, who knows who won the next night?
May your weekends be full of early bedtimes…both children and parents!
