Can we get up?

December 26, 2010

Christmas Eve into Christmas Morning – the conversation between my youngest child and myself went like this:

Her:  “It’s 3:30 – I can’t sleep – I’m so excited – can we get up?”

Me:    Not yet.

Her:  “It’s 4:08 – I can’t sleep – I’m so excited – can we get up?”

Me:   Not yet.

Her:  “It’s 4:25 – I can’t sleep – I’m so excited – can we get up?”

Me:   Not yet.

Her  “It’s 5:10 – Woo! I must have dozed off – I’m so excited – can we get up?”

Me, quietly in the dark of Christmas morning to my husband:  How long should we lay here and pretend to sleep?

Merry Christmas!
