The Twilight Zone

So why is it six in the morning, and I'm at the computer? With Nina on my lap? And Niko playing Katamari Damacy? What is going on here?

I can't explain it really, unless we all fell into the Twilight Zone.

For the last four nights, my kids have been popping out of bed at the strangest of times. Two? No biggie. Sleeping in until nine? Why not! So this morning Niko wandered sobbing into our room. He didn't want to lie down. He didn't want to be held. He wanted to start the dishwasher. At, you know, 4 AM. And his crying woke Nina, who has been begging for Winnie-the-Pooh's 1-2-3 for the last half hour. So 4:30 and the house was in full swing. We all bundled up and dropped Luke off at the bus stop, in case I get another call from Niko's school. He acts out when he's tired, so I'm prepared. And yes, he's definitely going to school! Being tired does not excuse us from our responsibilities. I have a full day and then Young Women's New Beginnings tonight, and I'm sure I'll be bleary-eyed, but present.

I was up until 1:00 working on queries and things that I can't do when the kids are awake. Printers and unblemished paper are a siren call for my kids. I had more to do, but the printer ran out of ink.

Typical. :P

You're crazy!! But we're on at the same time. How cool is that!

I hope Niko does okay! I know how he feels though. I don't do well when I'm tired either.
