Kids need sleep, who knew?

UPDATE: I lost! Phillip woke up at 1 and stayed up until 5. I am so tired! We did figure out he is cutting his two year molars, so it's really not his fault. I'm still tired, though :)

So, my kids need structure. Probably all kids do, but I can only speak for mine. We have a pretty set routine when school is in. During Christmas and summer break, I tend to throw routine out the window. This is bad. I know this is bad. But, still I do it. Bedtime, who needs a bedtime, it's Christmas break!

Sleep, who needs sleep??

Well, Phillip needs a bedtime. Otherwise, he will get out of his routine and stay up until 2 a.m., several nights in a row. This is not good, not good at all. I am so tired, he is so tired, everyone is tired! So, I have worked and worked with him the last few days (why do I do this to myself, STAY ON ROUTINE), and he is back to his 8:30 bedtime. Whew!!

This has nothing to do with sleep, it's just cute!

In other news, we are celebrating Christmas with my dad's side of the family tomorrow night. We are going to Ryan's Steakhouse, which is okay, I guess. I'm not a buffet kind of girl (seriously, I know I look like I am, but I'm not), but I will enjoy seeing everyone. If you like Ryan's, I have a little tip for you. If you go to their website and sign up for their newsletter, you can get a coupon for buy one dinner buffet, get one free. I have found that most restaurants have something like that these days. I always check before I go, because I am CHEAP!

Finally, I am so happy that so many of my friends are stopping by my blog. I have over 200 page views in 4 days. YAY! I realized tonight that I had annonymous comments disabled, so I fixed that. In other words, you can stop by and say hello with no strings attached. So, go ahead and do that...mmmkay!

Love you all, see you soon!!


  1. HA! I must be an overgrown kid.....'cause I NEED SLEEP!!!!!!!! In one of my fav Lucy/Linus cartoons, Lucy says she needs more sleep b/c she has big eyes...when questioned about it, she yells "People with big stomachs need more food, don't they??" I'd always heard that as people age, they need less sleep........seems to be working in reverse for me.....apparently my eyes grow bigger each year. LOL.
    BTW, enjoying the blog. :)

  2. Whew, I agree! I would be very happy with at least 12 hours a night, but usually have to settle for roughly half :( Glad you are enjoying it!
