Friday night lights, OUT!

Yay, it's Friday night and we get to stay up later than on school nights. What fun. Remember what a treat it was to be able to stay up later? Well, it hasn't changed, now my kids love it.

Friday nights could be made up of a couple things. Movie night is one. This consists of getting piled up in Mommy and Daddy's bed with popcorn and their selection of flick. It could also be just sitting Daddy's chair and watching a little animal channel. Also on occasion we're out. After the announcement was made that they were not required to go to bed shortly after story time, it was pandemonium. They could make up their minds what the wanted to do. The routine was the same. Wash up, brush teeth, in their jammies but then it was into Daddy's chair. (the decision was made)

My being the extremely conscientious Mother I am, I ask who was tired and ready for bed? (yeah, right!) The response was a collective "not me Mommy, I'm not tired." Great lets see what is on the animal channel this evening for our viewing pleasure.

(I'm NOT tired!)

Nothing for the girl on the left. As for the gentleman on the right he wasn't far behind, fifteen minutes, MAYBE! So their late night was fun, too bad it actually ended before it began. This picture was taken at 8:05p...lol! So much for not being tired.

Sweet pic! Way to go, Mom! They thought they were staying up late. Yet, somehow, mom and dad hopefully got some good alone time too. Yay! :)

Holy Cow! 8:05 is LATE night at your house? I just lassoed my 3 yr old and threw him into bed. (It's 9:09pm). His official bedtime is 8:30, but I can still hear him building what I think is an underground escape tunnel in his room. I think he's trying to tunnel out. God help me if he makes it.

Very cute picture. My two boys would stay up until sunrise if I let them...They'd be popping in video or dvd one after another! (We don't have cable) Love your blog...I'm off to check out more of it.

God Bless!
