Silver Linings--Sleepin' In

A-h-h-h-h-h-h. The quietness of a house of sleeping girls.

It is almost noon, and my three daughters are still sleeping. Yes, we tend to encourage sleeping in at our house. They don't have school today, so they get to rest. Plus, there has been this nasty bug going around that shut down the elementary school where my youngest daughter, Kiki Aru attends. Last Tuesday there were 41 % of the students and teachers gone from the school, so they shut it down and they will return tomorrow. Fortunately, no one in our family has gotten it. Thank you, Lord!! I stayed home today from work, because I have been fighting off a cold, and a sore throat, so I don't want to take any chances.

My oldest daughter, The Princess, is one of the better sleepers in our home. It is a hobby with her. Middle daughter Z2 is learning the art of sleeping in. Plus, she is the one with the sore throat yesterday, so let her rest. Kiki Aru, the youngest daughter, does not want to be sick, and takes pride in the fact she never misses school. I am surprised she hasn't woken up yet. Wait, I just heard her door open. It doesn't surprise me that she is the first one up, even though the clock says 11:59 a.m. Wait, I hear some coughing downstairs. Must be Z2. Not sure if she is actually out of bed, but I do hear her. Ah, she makes her appearance. But, unfortunately, she is stuffed up this morning.

PKR also slept in, which is a real rarity in his life. Didn't use to be, but anymore, his sleeping in days are few and far between. Today he didn't get up until about 10:30.

I slept in until 8 a.m., which is sleeping in for me. Then I had about 2 1/2 hours of complete quiet until PKR joined me. Quiet mornings are one of my favorite things.

I sure miss sleeping in! My oldest is finally mastering the art, but my little one still wakes up at the crack of dawn and encourages us all to join him in the loudest, most insistent tones possible...lol!

Great picture!

(And thank you for your kind comment on my blog. That was sweet!)
