What time do you go to bed?
Me? It’s pretty much always after midnight.
Emma’s always been a pretty grand sleeper, and she rarely has me out of bed before 7:30am (unless I go running, then it’s 6:30am for me). But I’m still just dying.
I’ve always been a 9-hour kind of girl. And 7 hours or less of post-midnight sleep is just not cutting it.
When I was in college, I’d have to take a 9:00pm nap just to keep up with my night-owl roommates. And pulling an all-nighter? Forget about it. Never happened. Not once.
I just never saw the point. We spent all day desperate to catch a nap in class– why would I want to stay up all night just to go through the headache of trying to snooze and take notes at the same time??
So I was usually in bed on time.
And when it came time to enter the workforce? 10:30pm on-the-dot bedtime. Every night, no exceptions. When I was pregnant– bedtime moved to 8:00pm.
So, why, now that I spend my days with an energy-sucking 2-year old, can I not manage to drag myself under the covers before 1:00am?? Why?!?!
So here’s the deal:
First person to rummage around the universe and dig up three extra hours for my day gets a Devil’s Food Cake Batter Rice Krispie Treat.
That’s a pretty good deal
