In college I loved the all nighter. I loved any reason to stay up, eat food, and watch the sun come up in the morning. Papers, exams, books to be read, it didn't matter what the assignment was! I would sometimes stay up just to help other people stay up and study. I could have been sleeping, but ahhh the draw of an all nighter!
So tonight appears to be an all nighter. It is now 12:17am, I'm awake and Ian is awake with no good sign of changing that any time soon! I think the child would stay awake forever if we didn't force him into his bed or occassionally need to drive somewhere. After about 6 months of age the kiddo seriously has never fallen asleep anywhere but those two spots. I don't have any of those cute photos of him placing his head on the sofa sleeping while he still stands. None of those cute curled up in the corner of the room shots. NONE!
He IS a sleeper...once we can get him to sleep...but geez he looks wide awake!
I'm searching for some witty banter that ties his late night and my college days...but I just don't seem to be witty at 12:22am anymore. Those days are gone. I just need sleep now. Sweet precious glorious sleep. I guess a schedule that let me have long afternoon naps made those late nights a little easier!
I think I'm too old for all nighters now...
