The inner clock of children...

I wonder is there an inner clock for children? After last night I don't think so because that would mean they would have to acknowledge that time of day does exist and there are times in the day for play and times for SLEEP!!!! Well, the wee ones around here have not adapted to this concept or they have chosen to ignore it all totally. It would be one thing if they were to be joyful and happy, but no, they are so tired from lack of sleep that they almost grouchier than a women PMSing for a month. Any how I do feel burdened for my sister Kat since she will be alone for the first time on monday with a newborn and an almost 2 year old. She had a c-section and so she has restrictions for another 4 weeks to be on the cautious side and she is so tired now. It hurts for her to sleep in a bed so she sleeps in a recliner and so the whole quiet and privacy thing doesn't happen all t often with a bunch of tired and cranky, yet over diligent toddlers. But oh how we love them, our days would be too quiet and lonely without them. So for now I will ignore my inner clock since I have been up since 5 a.m. for the day and try to not be grumpy about it. Not to successful so far, pray for me! Smiles! Christina

Wow you have a lot going on with all those little ones. I hope the one that was sick is getting better. You are so sweet to be helping out your sister so much!
