It's 9:50 pm and my kids are wide awake...

And it's not going to change anytime soon.

It turns out the play they are in, 'The King and I', lasts at least three hours. Night performances start at seven pm and they are all in the last scene.

The last practice ended around 8 pm, and Dino fell asleep in the middle of the stage in the bow position.

I need to change their clocks and turn them into temporary night owls.

If I heard another mom tell me this, I would say she was insane. Why would ever want your kids to break into your 'me' time?

Well, maybe I have gone a bit batty. The thought of letting my five year old son stay up as late as me (if not later) is a bit crazy.

But there is bright side. They sleep in. This morning they slept until 8:45 am. Really.

Guess for a little while, I'll just have morning 'me' time. Until I have to change the clocks back for school which sadly is closer than it looks.

Wish me luck on that one ;)

Oh my, that is a loooong performance! Hang in there, we're hoping you do get to relish the morning 'you time'.

The last two nights, my kids have stayed up until 11:00 and it's turned me into a crazy woman (or, more of a crazy woman). I forgot how I need time to unwind after they go to bed!
