I’m writing this at 1:05 am on 11/27
but this is my post for 11/26,
so read this as if it is yesterday.
My children are STILL giggling in the sofa bed,
refusing to go to sleep.
We are in West Virginia
for a little family vacation.
My husband is asleep;
so is my nephew,
but my two kids are stubbornly
attached to staying awake,
playing and laughing.
Now my twin sister is instructing
them to sleep; they quiet,
is NOW the moment when they sleep?
Nope. There they go again.
Just next door my mother, father,
older sister and her boyfriend are sleeping,
and tomorrow we’ll take a ride
on the Polar Express.
I love this moment, feeling so tired,
if only my children will let me.
