I just carried a sleep heavy five year old from the warmth of our bed to the cool clean sheets of her own after letting her stay up until the sky grew black with night... far past little girl's bedtime. She wanted to stay close as I haphazardly threw sweaters and boots into a suitcase a few hours before I'm to wake and catch an early flight to a different time zone. A suitcase I procrastinated in packing all day and instead washed just shy of a trillion loads of laundry. The upside? The entire family is sleeping on clean sheets tonight and though I might have lost a little sleep, I'm still going to bed with a fully stocked roller bag.
Oh and another upside today... besides getting into an early screening of Breaking Dawn a few hours before last night's midnight release, I'm also a part of Word of Mom over at What to Expect! My first post, about moving with kids and surviving their crabby spells, is live over there now and I'd love to have you check it out HERE!
