Finals week and we come into his bedroom for bed time prayers and tucking in close to 10 p.m.
He is laying there looking like his Daddy studying with his 3 ring binder opened to all of his
collected tests from this semester with the t.v playing a DVD of Star Trek...
Just like his Daddy staying up to study most nights from somewhere between 10:30 and 11:30.
He did this studying 'thing' as a newborn.
He was a night owl.
I had to get my sleep.
Daddy would prop him up on his lap with his own tests collected from medical school
in his 3 ring binders.
Our oldest would be lulled to sleep [sometimes] as Daddy read aloud and/or quizzed himself and other times he wouldn't.
Those other times sleep would come as Daddy would have a study break. Each night the t.v. came on at 11:30 to watch Star Trek. Daddy would move to the rocking chair then off he would go.
Daddy went by his bedroom door last night at 11:30. He heard the t.v. on with Star Trek playing.
