Shabbat dinner was over by 7:30; by 8:00, we were all in bed!!
Moshe was sick.
I was tired.
Y was beyond tired, having stayed up all night on Thursday night with her youth group.
MD didn't feel well either, and easily went to sleep early.
A would have happily curled up on the couch and gone to sleep there. But, these days, we prefer the kids sleep in their beds. I invited A to cuddle with me. She jumped at the chance, and willingly went to sleep in her own bed after that. She tries so hard to keep up with the big kids, but she is still a "little girl" in many ways.
You might think that with everyone going to sleep so early, we would get up early in the morning.
You would be wrong.
Please daven (or send happy, healing thoughts) for RivkA bat Teirtzel.
With love and optimism,
