And then, suddenly, it was 9:33 and Ted was unexpectedly home (he was planning to go straight to grocery shopping from his pottery class) amid the chaos and, well, it sure didn’t reflect well on me, the alleged grown-up in charge.
But there you have it. Does this make me negligent? My kids sleep late in the morning, have a late-afternoon nap and stay up late? Are we any lazier than people who wake up early, have an early nap and get to bed early?
Many homeschoolers would say that this is the schedule that works for us… so why does it feel so WRONG to be putting a 2-year-old to bed at 10 p.m.???
