The other night, at our Elevation ladies event, I had a very interesting conversation. You see, up until this conversation, I had this thought, Won’t it be nice when my children are teenagers and they sleep in!
I heard one lady remark to another, I always get so jealous when I find out how early your kids go to bed. You see this lady has teenage girls who apparently burn the midnight oil.
All the sudden, I realized that when they get bigger, you no longer have the night to yourself. At our house we eat dinner, then give the kids a bath and put them to sleep around 7pm. My husband and I enjoy the rest of the evening peacefully. In a few short years our evenings could be filled with game practices, lessons, homework and loud music.
The reality is, the day has to start. Maybe I should be thankful for my two little un-snoozable alarm clocks that wake me up between 6-7 every day but go to bed by 7:30 most every night. One day we will still have to get up early, but they will go to bed late.
I would love to hear from you, how old are your kids and what time to they wake up and go to sleep?
