---Last night, we had a magnificent thunderstorm. I could spend hours listening to the thunder rolling... but Art... can NOT. It's a fear of nature that will pass eventually and until then, I need to be the supportive loving mommy. I need to push him to peak out the window and be amazed by the faraway lines of the lightning in the sky. I need to show him that thunder is just noise. Like drums in the sky.
As marvelous as that all sounds.... it was nearly 1:30 when I got him to go to sleep last night. Nearly 2:30 when I finally got to bed. And the dear Trucker's alarm started ringing at 3:15. I had to drive him to his truck this morning, or lose my van for the day. Back home at just past 4:30.
Thankfully the kids ALL slept late. Even Angel Baby. But man... my system is messed UP. It's approaching midnight... boys are still awake... and me. AND I have my full day meeting tomorrow. I will reinforce a decent bedtime soon, but I can't fight mother nature. The storms will come when they are ready, no matter what time bedtime is.
JUST. ADD. COFFEE. (lots!)
