As we become Nocturnal

Dear Mom,
The kids are on Spring Break this week, and as nobody loves a good sleep in more than I, we are slowly becoming nocturnal. Up a little later each night, sleeping in longer each morning.
We all stayed up very late last night watching "The Goonies" on TBS. My Hero is not on Spring Break and since he did have to get up for work this morning, went to bed before the movie ended. The Young Lady's heavy eyelids got the better of her with a spare 15 minutes left in the movie, leaving the Young Man and I to finish the movie.
It turns out the kids can outsleep me now. Even the Young Lady, who used to be our early bird, is developing that pre-teen talent of sleeping in. It is nearly noon, and I probably should go wake them, but I have a stronger desire to enjoy these quiet hours as long as I can.
