Cecilia has been chafing at her bedtime recently. She also thinks it’s strange that both her parents go to bed so early. She wasn’t shy with her opinions but I was ready for this one!
Every parent quickly learns the importance of sleep. The kids are always a mess if they don’t get enough sleep. But so are the parents.
I’m a mess. I’m grouchy. I need a nap by 9 a.m. Who catches the brunt of that? Okay, Michelle first, but then the girls.
“I don’t want to be a hypocrite and I want to be a better Dad so I go to bed early.”
She didn’t have a quick answer for that one and she tucked me right in.
