I usually aim for an 8:00 bed time.
For Gloria, not me--
although that sure would be nice.
5 a.m. comes awfully early some days.
Tonight's conversation went something like this:
G: Momma, can my bed time be 9:00 when I'm 13?
G: Yessssssssss! (accompanied by the requisite hand motion)
A few seconds later...
G: How about when I'm 10? Can my bedtime be 8:30 when I'm 10?
Me: I think we can arrange that.
G: Oh yeah!
G: How about when I'm 9 my bed time can be 8:15.
Me: Sounds ok to me.
G: Oh yeah! Oh yeah! 8:15 bed time when I am 9!
This whole line of questions and answers continued and she's got her bed times planned out from now until she turns 21.
I think she decided on 10:00 when she is 16 and 11:00 when she is 21.
And, I think I will save this for her to remind her of our agreement some day!
