Last night we tried to put our girls to bed before 10 PM. This is getting hard for me to do in the summer. I love being outside and since it gets dark so late, bedtime keeps getting pushed back. Since I don't have to get up early during the summer, I easily justify the late bedtimes. But, my husband is not so appreciative. He does have to get up for work each day. At 11:00 last night we were both reading before bed when our oldest daughter came in to tell us that she couldn't fall asleep. Just moments later I could hear the creak of the bunk bed ladder and we were joined by our middle daughter who also could not sleep. Finally, after I laid down by our oldest daughter, and our middle daughter tried to fall asleep in our bed, the house was quiet. Until I woke up at 1:00 AM. I was wide awake, and decided to get up and read for a while. I headed to the couch where my I found my husband cruising the internet. He also could not sleep. I read for over an hour - probably more like two hours- and devoured Mary Ann McFadden's The Book Lover.
