It is no secret that my youngest child does not love school, and as a result, loses a great deal of sleep during the school year. But fret not! He has been making up for all that lost sleep this summer. Take Monday night for example.
He went to bed at 9 pm and was asleep by 10 pm. At 2.30 PM the next day, I forced him to awaken and get out of bed. He drifted downstairs and promptly dozed for another hour in the game room.
Knowing that he is healthy and otherwise nicely active, I am not overly worried about the sleeping. What does worry me, however, is the math I've been doing. It appears that when school resumes on September 7, if my child is to get all the sleep he seems to currently need, he is going to have to go to bed before school is dismissed each day.
I'm not really sure how the teacher is going to react to this news.
