Alex, it always amazes me when I go out late at night for something and see toddlers wide awake and wandering the aisles with mom or dad. My kids' bedtime is 9 (they do stay up a little later on weekends, but not much). If they spend the night with my mom, sometimes the hubby and I will go to a late movie or something, and pop into Walmart on the way home, and there are ALWAYS young kids there. Being a paramedic, he goes into the poorer and rougher sections of town a lot and has told me it's not at all unusual to have young kids, like 4 or 5, playing outside in the yard as late as midnight, with nobody watching them at all. I just can't wrap my head around it. Mine may not want to go to bed, they may not go to sleep, but they will at least be IN bed, and quiet, at the time they are supposed to be.
Another beautiful day here today, planning to work on a movable chicken run so my hens can have grass, and definitely want to ride at some point, and I'm sure the girls will too. I really should bathe everyone, but that probably won't happen.
